Introducing THE FIRE MAKER

Posted by Jazz on Friday October 19th, 2018

We’re so thrilled to announce that we’ve acquired the second novel by Guy Jones, author of beautiful and critically acclaimed The Ice Garden. Guy’s new middle-grade, standalone novel is called The Fire Maker and it’s a magical-realist adventure with a genie at its heart and the feel of an instant classic.

Alex loves magic – its glamour, tricks and illusions. He’s good at it, too: he’s reached the semi-finals of a prestigious competition for young magicians. But when he stumbles into eccentric Mr Olmos’s back garden while running from his former best friend, Alex sees something he can’t explain: three tiny flames floating in the air. Fire magic. Real magic. Soon, Alex and Mr Olmos are swept up in a great adventure of secrets, genies and an ancient, bitter rivalry ...

Gorgeously written and beautifully observed, this story is completely unforgettable and we are so excited to share it. And to whet your appetite, here’s the stunning cover by Helen Crawford-White ...

The Fire Maker is coming on 4 April 2019 … we can’t wait! Find out more by following Guy on Twitter: @guyjones80
