Praise for the book

‘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
