Product description

The days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve are dead days, when spirits roam and magic shifts restlessly just beneath the surface of our lives. A lot can happen in the dead days.

There is a magician called Valerian who must save his own life, or pay the price for the pact he made with evil so many years ago. But will alchemy and sorcery be any match against the demonic power pursuing him? Helping him is his servant, Boy, a child with no name and no past. Watching their fortune, mapping their destinies… is Fate. Set in the dark, dangerous cities and frozen countryside of a distant time and place, Marcus Sedgwick’s beautifully evoked and dramatic novel conjures a spellbinding story of power, corruption and desperate magic.

“A haunting ride into a world of compelling darkness.” Dreamwatch
