The Singular & Extraordinary Tale of Mirror & Goliath

Author: Ishbelle Bee

Release Date: October 28, 2015

Link to Goodreads:

In the summer of 1887 my grandfather stole a clock.
It was six feet high
and the shape of a coffin.

1888. A little girl called Mirror and her shape-shifting guardian Goliath Honeyflower are washed up on the shores of Victorian England. Something has been wrong with Mirror since the day her grandfather locked her inside a mysterious clock that was painted all over with ladybirds. Mirror does not know what she is, but she knows she is no longer human.

John Loveheart, meanwhile, was not born wicked. But after the sinister death of his parents, he was taken by Mr Fingers, the demon lord of the underworld. Some say he is mad. John would be inclined to agree.

Now Mr Fingers is determined to find the little girl called Mirror, whose flesh he intends to eat, and whose soul is the key to his eternal reign. And John Loveheart has been called by his otherworldly father to help him track Mirror down…

Why I'm excited:

That cover!! Soooooo pretty! Even without this gorgeous cover, I love the way this sounds: the girl who is no longer human, the underworld, his intention to eat her (!). It all sounds amazing. I wants it.

  4. I heard about this last week I think, and was immediately intrigued by the pretty cover. (And interesting title!) It sounds magical and kind of Oz-like and Wonderland-esque odd, so I want to read it!
