Description

'She blends history, myth, archaeology and psychology like no writer I've read since Rosemary Sutcliff' Amanda Craig, Independent on Sunday Basilisk is a rich and evocative story of greed, power and deception which sweeps from the underground cave network of the Combers, living like spiders amongst the endless tunnels and ropes, to the beautiful city inhabited by Abovers. The two worlds should never meet, but when the body of a murdered Abover appears in the combs, their worlds begin to draw closer and the corrupt dictator Arkel sees that his power over both is threatened. This is a brilliantly imagined and original novel, which will draw you into a dark and disturbing world.show more
