It is a life-changing deal—and it will end your life as you know it.
Sarah Trevelyan would give anything to regain the power and wealth her family has lost, so she makes a bargain with Azrael, Lord of Darkwater Hall. He will give her everything she needs to restore the Trevelyan name, and one hundred years to do it—in exchange for her soul. Fast-forward a hundred years to Tom, who dreams of attending Darkwater Hall School. A professor named Azrael offers him a bargain. Will Sarah be able to stop Tom from making the same mistake? Catherine Fisher's version of Faust is utterly spellbinding!

Catherine Fisher writes: “The oldest stories are often the best. And the story of someone—in this case a Victorian girl—who sells her soul to an immortal power and lives to regret the bargain, has to be one of the oldest in the world. I have been fascinated by the possibilities of it for some time. I’ve also become interested in alchemy, and I hope the two make a potent mixture. Darkwater is an image of the power and knowledge we all desire. But what will we pay for them, and are they worth the price?”
