November 2022 Book of the Month | Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month November 2022

Another entrancing novel full of mystery and spellbinding nature, from bestselling, award winning author Philip Reeve. As the deep magic of the woods stirs and awakens, so your heart will be stirred by this breathtaking, powerful story.

Master storyteller and world builder extraordinaire, Philip Reeve takes readers on a hugely welcome return visit to Wildsea, a place of a watery landscape and powerful magic, for a new story about the glorious heroine, Utterly Deep, and a host of other wonderful characters, some real and some magical.

Always keen on an adventure, Utterly insists on going with her guardian when he is invited to visit a relative on Summertide to look at some ancient earthworks. But what starts as a simple adventure soon turns into a nightmare. Utterly’s dreams are haunted by a demonic figure and she can feel the old magic of the island stirring as a sleeping power wakes.

Has she got the strength to fight this old, old magic? As ever, Philip Reeve effortlessly weaves magic into every corner of this supremely enjoyable adventure and its cast of incredible characters.
