The Battle of the Sun

by Jeanette Winterson

The Battle of the Sun Synopsis

Jack is the chosen one, the Radiant Boy the Magus needs in order to perfect the alchemy that will transform London of the 1600s into a golden city. But Jack isn't the kind of boy who will do what he is told by an evil genius, and he is soon involved in an epic and nail-biting adventure, featuring dragons, knights and Queen Elizabeth I, as he battles to save London.

The Battle of the Sun Press Reviews

Praise for Tanglewreck: 'An exceptional book: big, ambitious and awash with Winterson's usual inventiveness' Observer 'Winterson has a fine ear for children's dialogue and her writing is lucid, pitched perfectly at imaginative young readers' Sunday Telegraph 'The quality of Winterson's writing is of such a high order' Guardian Praise for The Battle of the Sun: 'A beautifully crafted tale ... it's obvious in every word, every plot twist, and every character that Winterson had fun writing The Battle of the Sun. This book radiates enjoyment, and the reader can bask in it. I was mesmerised by craft of an endlessly inventive author writing at the height of her power' Guardian
