"Great read" Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love books by chris wooding and this was a nice, relatively quick read. i enjoyed that it was not part of a series like so many good books are. I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good fantasy story


A subterranean world of vast caverns, underground seas, crystalline forests. A civilisation born of darkness, in darkness, protected by shadows. A city of merchants, whose eyes have turned upward to the surface, where the lethal light of day beats down on their world. A conspiracy so vast that it will swallow them all ...A stunningly original fantasy from a multi-award winning author. With a beautiful baroque world, sharp characterisation and Chris Wooding's trademark insight into the fantasy genre, the dawning of Halflight is an event more than worth waiting for.


"Entertaining and original." (Barbara Davies STARBURST )

"Chris Wooding's first novel for adults is nothing short of brilliant." (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN )

"Part escape novel, part travelogue, part a revenge-motivated fantasy, this energetic book, using revenge as a lead motif for the book, is engaging and fast-paced from the go. Those who, like me, loved Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Alfred Bester's The Stars My Destination or Steph Swainston's Jant series (though this is a tad more straightforward) will find much to admire here." (SFF WORLD.COM )
