'Baroque, Byzantine and beautiful - not to mention bold. An enthralling puzzle picture of a book' M. R. Carey, bestselling author of The Girl With All The Gifts THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS on ROTHERWEIRD A history-tragic-comedy all rolled into one, Rotherweird is intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book not unlike other books, but with special and dangerous properties. Line by line, silent and adroit, it opens a series of trap-doors in the reader's imagination - Hilary Mantel, two-time Man Booker prize winner, on Rotherweird

Compelling . . . the love child of Gormenghast and Hogwarts - Guardian on Rotherweird

This novel is a remarkable achievement. It's also extremely funny, in a typically British sort of way . . . a delightful Harry Potter for grown-ups - Sunday Independent on Rotherweird Andrew Caldecott is a QC specialising in media law; he has represented a wide variety of clients, from the BBC and the Guardian to supermodel Naomi Campbell. An occasional playwright, he turned his hand to fiction when, informed by his love of history, which he studied at New College, Oxford, he was seized by the notion of a city-state hiding a cataclysmic secret. Wyntertide continues the story started in Rotherweird. Wynter is here... and if he isn't stopped, this could be the end of Rotherweird - for good.
