'Mayhew has woven a rich tapestry depicting a series of convincing worlds . . . It has a breathtaking pace [and there] are characters we hope to meet again' (Children's Book of the Month,The Observer)
'An accomplished page-turner . . . lighthanded, scary fun, with some sibling bickering thrown in' (SFX)
Praise for The Demon Collector:
'Mortlock was a striking debut . . . it created a creepy atmosphere that won much praise. The Demon Collector is equally full of well-written suspense but far funnier, with a strong filmic element that fans of Joseph Delaney's Spooks Apprentice and Anthony McGowan's Hellbent will lap up . . . Boys will love the rich vein of disgusting humour and the fact that demons can't resist riddles - which the well-named Edgy is good at making up and solving. Mayhew's demons are scary enough to be exciting but, unlike those of Darren Shan, not depressingly sadistic. These are demons with style, and they're here to stay' (Amanda Craig, The Times)
Jonathan Stroud meets Joseph Delaney (with a bit of Dickens). A darkly humorous and utterly gripping story of a time when demons roamed London's underworld
