Small Blue Thing
This title is in stock RRP: £6.99 Saving £1.75 (25%)
Selected by Julia Eccleshare:
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.

SynopsisSmall 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.
'Gripping! I love Small Blue Thing and I can't wait until the second book is published.' Anna, aged 12.
'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

About The Author
Sue Ransom, the author of the Small Blue Thing trilogy, is a senior headhunter, but on the way to work and in the evenings she’s a writer: she wrote Small Blue Thing, her debut novel, as a birthday present for her daughter, and she composed it mostly on her BlackBerry.

In the video below, the author explains how she came up with the idea for Small Blue Thing.
