Product description

Review

"A history-tragic-comedy all rolled into one, Rotherweird is intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book not unlike other books, but with special and dangerous properties. Line by line, silent and adroit, it opens a series of trap-doors in the reader's imagination."--Hilary Mantel, two-time Man Book prize winner and author of Wolf Hall

"Baroque, Byzantine and beautiful--not to mention bold. An enthralling puzzle picture of a book"--M. R. Carey, author of the best-selling The Girl With All the Gifts

"An imaginative tour de force"--The Times

"Compelling... the love child of Gormenghast and Hogwarts."--The Guardian

"A remarkable achievement"--Sunday Independent

"Intricate...while the focus might be on the oddball inhabitants, Rotherweird is the true heart and soul of the narrative, a character in its own right."
--Publishers Weekly


"A strange, twisting tale of dark magic and horrible experimentation...Caldecott uses parallel storylines and mysterious, absurd twists and turns to entertain, painting a tale of strange stones, a patch of starless sky, tiles that transport to other worlds, and plants with unexpected properties. The characters are vivid and complex and make up the larger character of a town that is coping with a growing menace."
--Booklist

Product Description

'A book with special and dangerous properties' Hilary Mantel, bestselling author of Wolf Hall

'Enthralling' M.R. Carey, bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts

'An imaginative tour de force' The Times

1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird. Some say they are the golden generation; some say the devil's spawn. But everyone knows they are something to be revered - and feared.

Four and a half centuries on, cast adrift from the rest of England by Elizabeth I and still bound by its ancient laws, Rotherweird's independence is subject to one disturbing condition: nobody, but nobody, studies the town or its history.

Then an Outsider arrives, a man of unparallelled wealth and power, enough to buy the whole of Rotherweird - deeply buried secrets and all . . .

Welcome to Rotherweird.

'A remarkable achievement' Sunday Independent

'Compelling' Guardian
