Face your demons … it makes them easier to kill.

In the dark places of Victorian London where monsters prey on children, a beautiful young orphan girl with a mesmerizing voice jumps at the opportunity to train as an apprentice to an experienced monster hunter and agrees to be bait as a means to a better life and the only chance she may have to get her revenge.

FROM THE CUTTING ROOM OF BARNEY KETTLE

“Barney Kettle knew he would be a very famous film director one day, he just didn’t know when that day would arrive. He was already an actual director — he’d made four fifteen-minute films — but so far only his schoolmates and the residents of the High Street had viewed them. Global fame was a little way off. It would come, though. Barney was certain about that.”

REVIEWS:

“It’s heart-warming and it’s heart-breaking, it’s original and clever … it’s one to put on your must-read list.”
Nicky Pelligrinio, NZ Herald.

“It’s a cast as colourful as an operetta: Suit, who carries an alarm clock in his briefcase; Coralie, baker of (Organic) Iced Rodents — brackets obligatory; Orange Boy and Crimson Girl, potent yet evasive. Great control of tone; a protagonist who will haunt you for days afterwards; breadth of skill and generosity of spirit. “ David Hill, Weekend Herald.

Adults will also enjoy this teen novel about the buzz of creativity and the power of community.” Catherine Wolfe, NZ Listener
