The Clockwork Crow Trilogy BUNDLE
By Catherine Fisher | Special bundle offer which includes all three books in the award-winning Clockwork Crow trilogy.
The Clockwork Crow
When Seren Rhys is given a newspaper parcel by a stranger late at night in an empty train station, she has no idea what trouble it contains. She is on her way to a new life at the remote house of Plas-y Fran, but when she gets there the happy family Christmas she had hoped for turns out to be an illusion. Because Tomos has been missing for a year and a day, and if the strange and dangerous Family have really taken him, who would be mad enough to try and get him back?
Armed with a talking bird who might not be telling the truth, a magical snow-globe and her own indomitable courage, Seren sets off on a journey into a midnight world of snow and stars, to an ice palace unlocked only by a Door of Blood and Tears.
The Velvet Fox
Orphan Seren Rhys is enjoying her first summer at Plas-y-Fran. But as autumn arrives, it brings with it a mysterious new governess who seems intent on drawing Tomos away from Seren and his family.
Dangerous figures from a bewitched toy carousel stalk the house and, fearing the worst, Seren calls on the clockwork crow to help her. But can he reach her in time, and will Tomos be able to escape the magical creatures threatening to ensnare him, led by the Velvet Fox?
The Midnight Swan
With an invisible girl, a parliament of owls and a pen that writes by itself, the journey to the garden of the Midnight Swan might be Seren’s most dangerous adventure yet.

‘Magical, atmospheric – funny, this is a slice of Victorian creepiness and a seasonal treat’ Sally Morris, Daily Mail
‘Children of ten and older will find themselves pleasurably lost in this enchanting, candlelit delight.’ Philip Womack, Literary Review

New Statesman’s Best New Children’s Books for Christmas 2019
‘Darkly menacing and creepily atmospheric, this is turning into a series to follow.’ Sally Morris, Daily Mail
‘Fisher writes with elegant poise. The Velvet Fox will charm and frighten readers of ten and up in equal measures.’ Philip Womack, Literary Review
‘A writer whose strange magic is impossible to resist.’ Daniel Hahn
‘Catherine Fisher has woven her magic once more, twisting fairy tales, folklore and fantasy into a spellbinding tale.’ Family Bookworms
‘There is humour as well as excitement in this excellent story of a brave and resourceful heroine who surprises even her mentor, the Crow, and we can look forward to finding out what happens next.’ 5 stars, Books for Keeps
‘Tension builds from almost the first page in this creepy and unsettling tale of faerie folk which is best read with the lights on. With echoes of the more disconcerting aspects of Alice in Wonderland and traditional folk tales, deception is all around and nothing it what it seems.’ BookTrust
Praise for The Midnight Swan:
‘Full of deep fairytale resonance, Fisher’s writing stands out in the mind’s eye like blood drops on snow.’ Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian
‘The Midnight Swan is a fabulously satisfying conclusion to The Clockwork Crow trilogy. Seren is compelled to travel deeper and deeper into the otherworld in order to liberate the tetchy corvid. Magical and intense with more than a hint of danger. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!’ @bookwormswaless
Catherine Fisher writes with a poet’s love and respect for language … Previous installments in this trilogy have already won prizes; this title deserves one too – 5 stars’ Books for Keeps

‘A beautifully told tale and a trilogy of books that should definitely be on every bookshelf.’ Rosie Watch, LoveReadingKids
