Small Blue Thing is a great new read for teenage lovers of supernatural romance. It’s the first in a trilogy and although this book can be read as a standalone the reader is left with a brilliantly chilling taster of what is to follow in book 2 and luckily Book 2 - Perfectly Reflected - is now published as is the third one - Scattering Like Light.
The trilogy as a whole is a powerful sequence of interlinked romantic fantasy novels, following the relationship between a normal London teenaged girl who finds a bracelet in the Thames and, through it, an extraordinary connection with the hidden beings who died in the river, and must now consume human happiness to exist.

Small Blue Thing by S. C. Ransom
Celebrating the end of exams with best friend Grace, 17 year-old Alex rescues a swan caught on a wire in the Thames mud and finds an extraordinary bracelet. Through its disturbing and compelling powers, she finds Callum, a soul locked in a half-life of sadness and mystery following a terrible accident, and his persuasive and sinister sister, Catherine. As Alex and Callum grow closer despite the enormous obstacles to their love, the dangers mount until Alex must risk everything to save Grace and Callum must risk everything to save Alex.

'Small Blue Thing is a great story, well written with terrific characters' - Birmingham Post
'A ghostly romance' - The Bookseller
“The blurb was just informative enough, wetting the appetite for the delicious story within the pages of this book. The characters really came alive and there was just enough description for the written word to paint pictures in my mind. …this book blended the ordinary with the extraordinary, bringing the story alive from the very first page.” - MigMag, Small Blue Thing
I just LOVED Small Blue Thing and Perfectly Reflected was probably one of the BEST books I’ve Ever read. I Am literally hanging onto a twig to keep from falling off the Cliff-Hanger that Perfectly Reflected provided for me and I’m sure millions of others. So Just Hurry Up And Get The Next One Out!!! – Margo
