Sin is an orphan living a life of hard knocks in London when he's hunted down by a strange organization. Fearing for his life, he runs...
But there's more to Sin that just being an orphan, and as the story goes on he finds out more about who he is, and the dangerous and exciting world that is his inheritance.
There are gadgets galore, and much fun to be had in this novel that I like to described as a cross between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and something darker and more steampunky - with a little Oliver Twist thrown in for good measure.
Review by A.J. Ponder author of The Frankie Files and Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death
About the Author, Gareth Ward:
Ward, also known as the Great Wardini, is a magician, hypnotist,
storyteller, bookseller and author. He specialises in magic, spinning
tales and keeping you on your toes.
Apparently his letter from
Hogwarts was lost in the mail, but I have no idea where it went, and neither does my pet owl.
Come one and all, sit down with a coffee at Giselle's and enjoy giveaways and readings by some great local authors!!
Looking forward to seeing you there, and if you can't make it, we'd like to wish you all a Merry Holiday season,
from everyone at Rona Gallery
