Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea meets Frankenstein in Frances Hardinge’s latest fantasy adventure

The gods are dead. Decades ago, they turned on one another and tore each other apart. Nobody knows why. But are they really gone forever? When 15-year-old Hark finds the still-beating heart of a terrifying deity, he risks everything to keep it out of the hands of smugglers, military scientists, and a secret fanatical cult so that he can use it to save the life of his best friend, Jelt. But with the heart, Jelt gradually and eerily transforms. How long should Hark stay loyal to his friend when he’s becoming a monster—and what is Hark willing to sacrifice to save him?

OFFICIAL NERD BLAST FOR DEEPLIGHT BY FRANCES HARDINGE

Today I’m participating in a blast for Deeplight. I’m actually reading this adventurous, lush fantasy now and really loving it! It reminds me a bit of Robin Hobb’s books (who’s probably my all-time favorite epic fantasy author). Keep watching the blog for a review to come soon!! But for now, I’m offering up a chance for you to win your very own copy.


Praise for DEEPLIGHT★ “Equal parts dazzling fantasy, swashbuckling adventure, and tender coming-of-age tale.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “Monsters and mortals collide in this fantasy adventure that explores the hypnotic allure of fear, the adamant grip of the past, and the redeeming power of stories.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Glorious thematic complexity inhabits a wildly inventive world, with the menacing roils of a dangerous sea threatening the archipelago and touches of steampunk rounding out the fantastical elements.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Chilling and provocative, this dark fantasy will appeal to thrill seekers and cerebral tweens.” —Booklist
