Product description

Love Neil Gaiman or Philip Reeve? Read these! Cinematic, dark and tense, Chris Wooding’s gothic masterpieces take horror into new realms of delirious strangeness. Poison lives in a fairytale world where evil looks just like beauty. Nothing you see/touch/taste/see can be trusted. Now she’s off on a rescue mission unlike any fantasy quest you’ve braved before… Once you’ve rested your legs, it’s time for a walk through the crooked streets of an alternate Victorian London. Descend (if you dare) into its foggy alleys, stalked by twisted monsters and a ritual killer. Lost girl Alaizabel Cray might be the key to stopping the monsters. But only if she can escape from Stitch-Face…

  • Genre-busting horror classics from a truly original writer
  • Full of wild invention and gruesome, brooding atmosphere
  • The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray won the Smarties Silver Prize
  • Poison was nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2004

“Intelligent, atmospheric and spine-tingling… breathtakingly brilliant.” Guardian

“Wooding’s explosive visual imagination knows no bounds.” The Times
