A wonderfully atmospheric and deliciously intriguing mystery set within an alternative history of the theatre district in London. After her father dies, 19 year old Juliet begins to learn the truth about the shadowy secretive world of immersive theatre where she was born. Author Anne Corlett has created the most enigmatic sense of place within the District, it hides in plain site drawing people in to watch the show. At times ominous and unsettling, at others joyful and hopeful, this story is almost dreamlike. I wasn’t entirely sure what age range this novel was aimed at, I feel that older young adults and up will enjoy it. The nativity of Juliet is unsurprising after her upbringing, manipulation and corruption slyly slides into place around her. While she is the focus of this tale, it is the theatre district itself that steals the limelight. I felt as though I was there, slipping down corridors and opening doors onto performances, and just like Juliet, I was left wanting more, so I’ve chosen this novel as a Liz Pick of the Month. Throwing open the doors to a fascinating world, The Theatre of Glass and Shadows is an original and richly imaginative mystery.
