Smarties award-winning novel, read by the author.

“I hate school! I hate ratings! I won’t reach higher! I won’t strive harder! I won’t make tomorrow better than today!”

In the walled city of Aramanth, exams are everything – not only for children, but for whole families. When Kestrel Hath dares to rebel, the Chief Examiner humiliates her father and sentences the family to the harshest punishment.

Desperate to save them, Kestrel discovers that life in Aramanth was once different – and if she can find the secret of the Wind Singer, maybe life can change for the better once more. So she and her twin brother, Bowman, set out on a terrifying journey – to the true source of the evil that grips Aramanth…

Review:

“a gripping read…a beautifully narrated, warm thriller of a book, full of inventiveness, action and passion” The Guardian

“In terms of imagination and sheer scale, it’s as ambitious as books get…think Star Wars and then some” Daily Telegraph

“Positively surreal imagery, a fast-moving adventure and a cutting satire all in one. An original and striking read.” Melvin Burgess

“An accessible, rebellious and fast-paced adventure and, as you would expect from the author of Shadowlands, a heart-wringing celebration of love.” The Sunday Times
