Today sees the publication of Kim’s latest novel, The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School by Titan Books.
It’s available in all good book shops, or you can order it online from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
Here’s a taster of what the book’s about:
A week after her mother found her sleeping on the ceiling, Amy Thomsett is delivered to her new school, Drearcliff Grange in Somerset. Although it looks like a regular boarding school, Amy learns that Drearcliff girls are special, the daughters of criminal masterminds, outlaw scientists and master magicians.
Several of the pupils also have special gifts like Amy’s, and when one of the girls in her dormitory is abducted by a mysterious group in black hoods, Amy forms a secret, superpowered society called the Moth Club to rescue their friend. They soon discover that the Hooded Conspiracy runs through the school, and it’s up to the Moth Club to get to the heart of it.
If that’s not enough to tempt you, check out some of the reviews of the book:
- On Tor.com by Niall Alexander
Pleasantly befuddled; just finished the first term at Drearcliff and, beset by a strong sense of dejavu, I’d initially assumed I’d previously encountered the Moth Club and the black hoods in the pages of Interzone or somesuch -except I don’t see any reference to any previous publication of any part of Drearcliff on the publication info page. Have I finally fallen off the edge of my mind?
