LoveReading Says

An utterly spellbinding and equally shattering novel we are thrilled to celebrate as a LoveReading Star Book. Shay, Nonesuch, and other young performers create The Ghost Theatre in Elizabethan London, staging plays that threaten to encourage a rebellion. From the moment I began I knew I would be heading into a darkness that I might not return from, and it’s all the more powerful for that. This hovers on the edge of genre, don’t expect anything other than the world in which you find yourself. This is a time of strife, defiance, and savagery, yet there is a whisper of underlying hope throughout, hope that I was almost too fearful to reach out and touch in case it flew away. This novel took me deep into the souls of the main characters and I felt entirely invested in their beautifully compelling lives. As the pace danced and rampaged through plot I found myself slowing down and speeding up as I read, becoming at one with the words. I felt a pure tidal wave of emotion, I laughed and I cried. The heady intimacy of the setting, the connectivity with the birds and animals, the danger that hovered with lit touchpaper, all entered my thoughts and took up residence. A Liz Pick of the Month, The Ghost Theatre is an all-consuming almost overwhelming novel, and yet a complete joy to experience.
