The Monstrous Child, Hardback Book


A stunning, operatic and epic drama like no other. Meet Hel, an ordinary teenager - and goddess of the Underworld.

Why is life so unfair? But Hel tries to make the best of it, creating gleaming halls in her dark kingdom and welcoming the dead who she is forced to host for eternity.

Until eternity itself is threatened. Francesca Simon's wonderful first foray into teen fiction.
