LoveReading View on Dark Flight Down

This is the stunning conclusion to The Book of Dead Days, a sweeping gothic fantasy that is packed with mystery and intrigue and the loose ends from the earlier book are brought together brilliantly into a story that is both mesmerizing, deeply thought-provoking and it definitely doesn’t have the ending you think it might.  Very original.

Dark Flight Down Synopsis

Held captive in the palace of the Emperor Frederick, Boy and Willow are plunged into a world of gilded finery and splendour. But beneath its golden veneer lies cruelty, madness and desperation. They are in terrible danger as they confront the whirlwind furies of the Emperor, the calculating ambitions of his confidante, Maxim, and follow a deadly trail which will lead them to the Phantom. Packed with mystery and intrigue, the truth about Boy's identity and many other shattering secrets, are all reevealed as the BOOK OF DEAD DAYS is opened for the final time in Marcus Sedgwick's conclusion to a mesmerising story.
