'Ngan's story is rich, is beautiful, is devastating and magical, and one of the best novels that I've picked up so far'
'A compelling narrative of personal rebellion, and a timely reminder that, in the right hands, the fantasy genre has things to say about injustice and abuse of power in the real world'
Natasha Ngan is part young-adult author, part yoga-teacher, part habitual nap-taker. She grew up between Malaysia and the UK, speaking Chinese with her mother mainly as a way to talk about people without them understanding. She studied Geography at the University of Cambridge and later worked as a fashion blogger, social media consultant and freelance writer. Natasha recently moved to Paris, where she likes to imagine she drifts stylishly from brasserie to brasserie, notepad in one hand and wineglass in the other. In reality, she mostly spends her time lost on the metro and offending locals with her French.
