Twilight Robbery (Mosca Mye #2)
'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now.' Patrick Ness The thrilling sequel to Frances Hardinge's debut novel Fly By Night, Twilight Robbery is a fast-paced and imaginative adventure. Mosca Mye and Eponymous Clent are in trouble again. Escaping disaster by the skin of their teeth, they find refuge in Toll, the strange gateway town where visitors may neither enter nor leave without paying a price. By day, the city is well-mannered and orderly; by night, it's the haunt of rogues and villains. Wherever there's a plot, there's sure to be treachery, and wherever there's treachery, there's sure to be trouble - and where there's trouble, Clent, Mosca and the web-footed apocalypse Saracen the goose can't be far behind. But as past deeds catch up with them and old enemies appear, it looks as if this time there's no way out ...
From the winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2015. The city at night is a dangerous place ...
'Everyone should read Frances Hardinge. Everyone. Right now.' -- Patrick Ness
Frances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of Fly By Night, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award. The sequel, Twilight Robbery, was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. She has also written many other highly acclaimed novels including Verdigris Deep, Cuckoo Song and the Costa Award winning The Lie Tree.
