'City of Masks is a poignant, touching and exciting novel, difficult to put down. This is one of the best time-slip stories that I have read in recent years. Without doubt a masterwork of contemporary children's literature' Edgardo Zaghini, Children's Literature Officer, Booktrust 'One of the most exciting adventures I've read in years' Wendy Cooling, Best Books for Christmas in the Children's Bookseller 'The writing has a rich, lyrical quality and the plot is hugely imaginative' Waterstone's Guide to Kid's Books
