The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is fantasy of the highest order and incredible to think this is only the author’s second novel. The first, we rated highly too, was Stoneheart. Ironhand is an epic - wonderfully imaginative and breathtakingly clever. It brings a whole new meaning to London life. I can see a film coming on so get there first and read them if you haven’t already.
And if you enjoyed the first two then make sure you check out the final title in the trilogy, Silvertongue.
Iron Hand by Charlie Fletcher
"Edie," said George, "we're going to do this together. I'll be right there with you. Anything, anyone trying to get you is going to have to come past me first." But when George makes his promise he is not aware that high on the rooftops an unseen gargoyle is watching them hungrily, quivering with anticipation for the moment when it will unfold its stone wings and pounce. The thing on the roof knows that nothing is over; nothing is finished. Ironhand takes us deeper into the layers of un-London, the place where the good and the bad statues, the spits and the taints, walk and war. George and Edie must repay the debt which they owe the Gunner for his sacrifice. They must face unspeakable danger and doubt if they are to save him.
‘A highly original page-turner.’ Daily Mail
‘An epic adventure’ Guardian
