The Dark Flight Down
In the morning you should think you might not last unto the night In the evening you should think you might not last unto the morn Boy has survived the terrors of life with the magician Valerian, dark magic and deadly chases through gloomy catacombs and death-fields, but he is still on the run. In a mesmerising conclusion to their enthralling story, Boy and Willow are incarcerated in the Emperor Frederick's palace. It's a world of untold splendour, of closely guarded secrets and terrifying revelations now laid bare by the whirlwind furies of the Emperor, the cold ambition of his confidante, Maxim, the tricks of necromancers, a trail of blood that will lead to the grisly Phantom. Holding all their lives between its pages, the book waits to deceive its next reader. So dance, my dears, dance, Before you take the Dark Flight Down...
"This is an elegantly plotted, exquisitely gothic tale which confirms Sedgwick's status as one of our finest contemporary children's authors." – Joanne Owen, The Bookseller
