The book

The second volume in The Mirror Visitor Quartet and follow-up to A Winter’s Promise, Waterstones Children’s Book Prize Finalist 2019

Lose yourself in the magical universe of the arks, brought to life in this mesmerising tale of intrigue and suspense.

Awkward misfit or misunderstood genius, Ophelia cares little about appearances. She possesses two special gifts: a talent for reading the pasts of objects and the ability to travel through mirrors. Her peaceful existence is interrupted when she is promised in marriage to a member of a powerful clan from a cold and distant ark. When our heroine is promoted to Vice-storyteller by the ancestral Spirit of Pole, she finds herself unexpectedly thrust into the public spotlight. Now that her powers are known to all, she is forced to reveal the nefarious plots that have been brewing beneath the golden rafters of Citaceleste and to throw herself into its political machinations. In this perilous situation, the only person she may be able to trust is Thorn, her enigmatic fiancé. As one after another influential courtier vanishes in suspicious circumstances, Ophelia again finds herself unintentionally implicated in an investigation that will lead her to see beyond Pole’s many illusions to the heart of the formidable truth.
