Amunet has a unique talent; she can talk to the dead. She had been told all her life that this is the key to rescuing her mother, who has been taken by mysterious and powerful forces. To unlock her mother’s prison, all she has to do is find the Locksmith. Posing as a Medium, she scours Europe for the one person who can help her.


Harry and his father are investigators, employed by the Church to hunt down Mediums and hand them over to the mercies of the Inquisition. Harry has always believed he, and the Church, were doing the right thing. Until now.

Refusing to believe the Inquisition's claim that Amunet is evil, Harry risks his own life, and his relationship with his father, to  keep her from the clutches of the Church, even as she guides him on a journey to prevent a terrible evil being set loose in the world.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Robert Harkess(Warrior Stone) 'An under-London for The Hunger Games generation. Elegantly written, emotionally underpinned and inventive.' Kim Lakin-Smith, author of Autodrome (Warrior Stone) 'An action-packed urban fantasy that brought Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere to mind. Fill with adventure, magic, slick weaponry and a great cast of supporting characters (Evie is brilliant)." Kim Curran, author of Shift(A Meeting of Minds) 'This book was beautifully written, with well-crafted characters and world. It reminded me very much of classic sci-fi of the Phillip K Dick kind.' Constance Curry(A Meeting of Minds) 'My initial thought was 'wow, this would make a superb RPG-style video-game!'. But for a young adult novel, it definitely offers some thoughtful ideas. Will definitely be reading more of Mr Harkess' work!' Amazon Customer (Aphrodite's Dawn) 'This is the first Sci-Fi book I have ever read and I enjoyed it from the start.' Amazon Customer (White Magic) 'A recommended read - sassy and smart steampunk YA that touches on real-world problems in an unreal Underland.' Joanne Hall, author of The Summer Goddess
