'There is a world where gods you’ve never heard of have wound themselves into hearts, and choice has led its history down a different path.

This is a world where France made a small, downtrodden island called England part of its vast and bloated empire.

There are people here who can cross a thousand miles with their minds. There are rarer people still who can move between continents in the blink of an eye.

These people are dangerous.

And wanted. Desperately wanted.

Apprentice hedgewitch Vela Rue knows that she is destined for more. She knows being whisked off from a dull country life to a city full of mystery and intrigue is meant to be. She knows she has something her government wants, a talent so rare and precious and new that they will do anything to train her in it.

But she doesn’t know that she is being lied to. She doesn’t know that the man teaching her about her talent is becoming obsessed by her, and considered by some to be the most dangerous man alive...'

When I was at the Patrick Ness event at the beginning of the month I had the pleasure of meeting Laure. I'm sure she thought I was a blithering idiot, I really can't do the whole talking to authors thing. I get so stupidly nervous which, considering my extremely advanced age is utterly ridiculous but she is absolutely lovely and has great taste in tee's! Anyway, Laure's books sounds amazing, I'm intrigued about what an apprentice hedgewitch does and I'd just like it now!
