Review:

A beautiful illustrated gift edition of Frances Hardinge's hugely entertaining and dramatic Victorian thriller... Faith is a feisty heroine whose courage combined with a determination that girls can be brave and resolute leads to the exposure of much dishonesty and many deceptions. Chris Riddell's gothic illustrations are perfectly suited to this spellbinding novel. LoveReadingForKids It has been quite a year for this duo: Hardinge claimed the Costa Book of the Year for The Lie Tree, while Riddell scored his third Kate Greenaway Medal for The Sleeper and the Spindle. This is an illustrated hardback edition of Hardinge's text, rather wonderfully born out of Riddell's margin-doodling, which he shared on Instagram. The combination is an intriguing one: I've had but a glimpse and can't wait to see how Riddell interprets the dark, powerful story. YA Book Prize Blog a gorgeously creepy new edition of the Costa Book Award-winning The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge. Who could be better to provide evocative artwork for this than Children's Laureate, Chris Riddell? It's a real treat of a book - perhaps even more satisfying if you're buying it for yourself and reading on a damp and dark Sunday afternoon from the comfort of the sofa... Down the Rabbit Hole blog Fun and ingenious, with plenty of cliffhangers [and] a healthy dash of feminism. Guardian Review Hardinge is a hugely talented writer of tireless invention and prose. Guardian Hardinge writes with energy and verve. The Times Brilliant, dark, thrilling, utterly original. -- Patrick Ness I loved this book so much. -- Lucy Mangan A sinuously beguiling tale of faith, science and murder. Sunday Times News Review A substantial text that is complex and intelligent: a lustrous, delicious romp about evolution and feminism ... The vivid, beautifully powerful whole plays with genre, language and expectation. -- Philip Womack Daily Telegraph This historical fantasy, written with Hardinge's rare precision and originality of language, illuminates the Victorian age and resonates for ours. -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times Children's Book of the Year Throwing evolution, feminism and revenge tragedy together, The Lie Tree is a thrilling, gleamingly involving novel that anyone might enjoy, with gorgeous, lush writing matched by a vividly hooking plot. -- Philip Womack The Literary Review Stylishly imaginative. New Statesman The Lie Tree is a fantastic story. It is an important book, not only because it is a great narrative, with great characterization, but because its central message of possibility for an intelligent girl who is out of touch for the age in which she lives is a very important one and relevant for today. -- James Heneage, Chair of the Costa Judges A new novel by Hardinge is always an event and this latest has her usual precision and originality of language, while telling an absorbing historical tale.
