The City’s Son, by Tom Pollock (hardback)


Expelled from school, betrayed by her best friend and virtually ignored by her dad, who’s never recovered from the death of her mum, Beth Bradley retreats to the sanctuary of the streets, looking for a new home. What she finds is Filius Viae, the ragged and cocky crown prince of London, who opens her eyes to the place she’s never truly seen.

But the hidden London is on the brink of destruction. Reach, the King of the Cranes, is a malign god of demolition, and he wants Filius dead. In the absence of the Lady of the Streets, Filius’ goddess mother, Beth rouses Filius to raise an alleyway army, to reclaim London’s skyscraper throne for the mother he’s never known. Beth has almost forgotten her old life – until her best friend and her father come searching for her, and she must choose between the streets and the life she left behind.

You have a week to comment on this post. Tell me which Jo Fletcher Books or non-SF Quercus titles you’re looking forward to reading in 2013. If you wish, add your twitter name, tumblr or blog url. Next Wednesday night (around 8pm GMT-4), I’ll choose a winner from the comments. I’ll announce the name next Thursday when I post about the new giveaway.

Have fun!

  1. Personally, I’m looking forward to The Best of All Possible Worlds. And the new Colin Cotterill, I forget the title. Those particularly, and Ian McDonald’s Planesrunner as well – and all the books, really, if I can find the time.

  2. I’m also looking forward toy The Best of All Possible Worlds but will be looking to get Sarah Pinborough’s Mayhem.

    BTW I love the UK cover for Redemption in Indigo!


  3. Planesrunner by Ian Mcdonald but there are so many to choose from I don’t know where to start! This is however a good thing, it means my evergrowing list of things to read, isn’t going to shrink anytime.

    Thanks to the Book Smugglers for retweeting this. I am always on the hunt for new books to read and my list is ever growing. I cannot seem to get enough. Along with the two above mentioned books “Redemption in Indigo” and “The City’s Son”, I have added a handful from the website. Thank you for sharing this. My list includes the above two titles as well as The Glass Republic, Path of Needles, The Demi Monde series, Curious Warnings – The Great Ghost Stories of M.R. James, mayhem, The Silver Bough, The Vampire Shrink, and A Book of Horrors. I would absolutely love to win the above books, but regardless I feel like I have already won with a new blog to follow, a new website to watch, and a list of books to add to my scroll.


  5. I’m looking forward for looking forward to The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord.. everyone on Goodreads seems to love it!

  6. Karen Lord’s “The Best of All Possible Worlds”, Sarah Pinborough’s “Mayhem”, Alison Littlewood’s “Path of Needles”, Snorri Kristjansson’s “Swords of Good Men” & Amish’s “The Immortals of Meluha”.
