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.

“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
