'One of our finest storytellers,' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent

From Frances Hardinge, the Costa Award-winning author of The Lie Tree comes Deeplight.


The gods of the Myriad were as real as the coastlines and currents, and as merciless as the winds and whirlpools. Now the gods are dead, but their remains are stirring beneath the waves . . .

On the streets of the Island of Lady's Crave live 14-year-old urchins Hark and his best friend Jelt. They are scavengers: diving for relics of the gods, desperate for anything they can sell. But there is something dangerous in the deep waters of the undersea, calling to someone brave enough to retrieve it.

When the waves try to claim Jelt, Hark will do anything to save him. Even if it means compromising not just who Jelt is, but what he is . . .


Hardinge creates an entire world and furnishes it with wonders. Pure magic. -- M.R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts

Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now -- Patrick Ness

In Deeplight, Hardinge's unparalleled, terrifying imagination illuminates an underwater world filled with the potent debris of departed gods, and the desperate ambitions of the humans who seek it. No one else writes quite like her - every new book is something extraordinary to be celebrated. -- Imogen Russell Williams

Electrifyingly good -- Amanda Craig, New Statesman

A novel by Hardinge is always an event, Sunday Times

Frances Hardinge has joined the company of writers whose books I will always seek out and read -- Garth Nix

There is no mistaking the distinctive voice and vividly crafted prose of Frances Hardinge. She is a writer who delights in language, and whose stories fizz with ideas, allusions and eccentric detail, Metro
