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…
Oh my gosh, I can’t handle this cover. I can’t remember the last time I saw something so beautifully textured on a flat jpg image. The crackle of the background, the shiny gloss of the gilt, the way the blue, purple, and gold play off each other… And the details! Look at that border! The moon! The FONT! The tiny ladybugs! The manor house! Goliath’s tail!
I. NEED. THIS. BOOK.
What do you think of this cover? I won’t take less than pure awe.
