Description

Join Chris Womersley in conversation with Sarina Gale to discuss his latest book, CITY OF CROWS.

A woman’s heart contains all things. Her heart is tender and loving, but it has other elements.

It contains fire and intrigue and mighty storms.

Shipwreck and all that has ever happened in the world.

Murder, if need be…

1673. Desperate to save herself and her only surviving child Nicolas from an outbreak of plague, Charlotte Picot flees her tiny village in the French countryside. But when Nicolas is abducted by a troop of slavers, Charlotte resorts to witchcraft and summons assistance in the shape of a malevolent man. She and her companion travel to Paris where they become further entwined in the underground of sorcerers and poisoners – and where each is force to reassess their ideas of good and evil. Before Charlotte is finished she will wander hell’s halls, trade with a witch and accept a demon’s fealty. Meanwhile, a notorious criminal is unexpectedly released from the prison galleys where he has served a brutal sentence for sacrilege…

Based on real characters and historical incident, this astonishing novel from award-winning writer Chris Womersley looks at the lengths to which a mother will go to rescue her child, and the lengths to which a damned man will go to save his soul.
