About the Author

Andrew Caldecott (Author) Andrew Caldecott is a QC specialising in media law; he has represented a wide variety of clients, from the BBC and the Guardian to supermodel Naomi Campbell. An occasional playwright, he turned his hand to fiction when, informed by his love of history, which he studied at New College, Oxford, he was seized by the notion of a city-state hiding a cataclysmic secret. Wyntertide continues the story started in Rotherweird.Sasha Laika (Illustrator) Sasha Laika studied figurative art in Moscow, followed by a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration in the UK. A London-based artist for the last 10 years, Sasha creates highly intricate works that draw on imagery from mythology, folklore and religious iconography. Her works are inhabited by mystical creatures that morph between human and animal, and exist in transition somewhere between the worlds of fantasy and reality. She considers Rotherweird the perfect subject for her debut work as a book illustrator.

A history-tragic-comedy all rolled into one, Rotherweird is intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book not unlike other books, but with special and dangerous properties. Line by line, silent and adroit, it opens a series of trap-doors in the reader's imagination - Hilary Mantel, two-time Man Booker prize winnerBaroque, Byzantine and beautiful - not to mention bold. An enthralling puzzle picture of a book - M R Carey, author of the bestselling The Girl With All The GiftsAn imaginative tour de force - The TimesCompelling . . . the love child of Gormenghast and Hogwarts. - the GuardianSublime . . . Call me greedy, but I'm already itching to return to Caldecott's universe. - The Irish TimesOne of this year's most anticipated debut novels - SFXThis novel is a remarkable achievement. It's also extremely funny, in a typically British sort of way . . . a delightful Harry Potter for grown ups - Sunday IndependentTruly, sinisterly magical. 10/10 - Starburst
