Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2019.

Every year, Wren is chased through the woods in a twisted version of a game. But those who hunt her don’t know they are really the hunted. The boys who chase her are judges: powerful and frightening pursuers. But they have no idea who she truly is. An augur – their sworn enemy. For Wren is on the hunt, too. She’s at the Harkness Foundation on a mission. While she pretends to be an intern, she’s actually a spy. Her family’s survival depends on exposing a secret, hidden at the enemy HQ. But what with old loyalties, fresh lies and new loves, the game is about to turn deadly…

“The most superb collection of character and fantasy and love and landscape I have read since Phillip Pullman’s Northern Lights.Hilary McKay

“Throwing romance, magical visions and gruesome rituals into the pot, this is a thrilling and otherworldly depiction of Irish culture.” Sunday Times Magazine

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
