From HBO scriptwriter Charlie Fletcher comes a wildly original and hugely entertaining new fantasy series for a generation that has grown up with Harry Potter and Neil Gaiman.

Sometimes you look in the mirror—sometimes it looks back.

Those who belong to the secret society called The Oversight know many things. They know cold iron will hold back the beasts in the darkness. They know it is dangerous to stand between two mirrors. And they know that, despite their dwindling numbers, it remains their duty to protect humanity from the predations of the supernatural. And vice versa.

But two of the society’s strongest members, Mr. Sharp and Sara Falk, are trapped in the world between the mirrors, looking for each other, searching for a way back home. What they discover there will have ominous consequences both for The Oversight and the world it protects—effects that will make them question everything they thought they knew.

The dark waters rise. The candles are guttering. But the light still remains.

For now…

Quotes & Awards

  • Fletcher's Victorian London is juicily vivid, and laced with macabre wit. There's a real sense of grim danger, both natural and unnatural, hungrily awaiting the slightest mis-step. Frances Hardinge on The Oversight
  • I couldn't stop reading... It really is a richly atmospheric and intensely readable slice of Victoriana: gothic as all get out, with a splendidly eerie sense of the way the unearthly lies cheek-by-jowl with the mundane. Cheerable goodies, grotesque baddies: the whole book is adventurous and flavorsome and gripping. I really enjoyed it. Adam Roberts on The Overight
  • Utterly enthralling: Charles Dickens meets Susanna Clarke. Lou Morgan on The Oversight
  • I'll certainly be reading the next one. Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net on The Oversight
  • It's oh so moreish a morsel. I'd read a prequel this evening, a sequel as soon as. Niall Alexander, Tor.com on The Oversight
  • A trilogy worth sinking your teeth into. SciFi Now on The Oversight
  • The second book can't come soon enough. Booklist (Starred Review)

    Lou Morgan, praise for the series

  • Those already familiar with this world will be delighted, and newcomers will eagerly lose themselves in this utterly imaginative fantasy. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Paradox
