London is in the aftermath of a near-apocalypse-a comet has just missed earth, leaving the city in chaos. in this time of uncertainty, only the blind boy oracle, tersias, can see what the future holds. but awareness of his power is growing, and he is captured by solomon, a false prophet whose minions swarm london. An unlikely alliance of teenage highwaymen and a charlatan magician swear to break down solomon's Citadel and rescue tersias from the false prophet's clutches. they wonder if tersias's power can save them all. but they haven't realized the source of his second sight, and they aren't aware of a much darker force that torments his soul.

About the Author:

G.P Taylor is ordained as an Anglican priest and he ministers in the rural community parish of Thorpe in Yorkshire. He has a keen interest in the paranormal and folklore, as a researcher and lecturer. He is the bestselling author of Shadowmancer and Wormwood.

From Booklist:

Gr. 8-11. This macabre, old-London tale of corruption and redemption revolves around 12-year-old Tersias, a blind oracle. His is a sorry life, locked in a cage, forced to speak the future to earn coins for an abusive owner. Tersias' prophetic powers come from a Wretchkin, a nefarious otherworldly creature who also uses Tersias for his own gain. Other power-hungry sorts seek to use the boy as well, including Lord Malpas, burdened with a dark family curse, and Solomon, an apocalypse-obsessed cult leader. The boy's only friends are a band of young thieves who have robbed Malpas of two magical objects coveted by most of the story's characters, and which bring them all together in a final confrontation. Though some holes in the backstory and weak characterizations may pose obstacles for less-motivated readers, this is still more accessible than Taylor's Shadowmancer and Wormwood (both 2004), and the story's gritty setting, moody tone, and brisk action will appeal to many.
