'An impeccably dark parable, endlessly inventive and utterly compelling' Mike Carey, author of The Girl with all the Gifts
Welcome to the world of the Skyscraper Throne: a hidden London that lurks just beneath the surface of the city, full of marvels, magic . . . and menace.
When seventeen-year-old graffiti artist Beth runs away from home, she doesn't suspect that beneath our London, lies a hidden world of creatures who live off the city, nor does she expect to find Filius Viae, the Urchin, the Son of the Streets, or to drag her friend Pen along with her.
When war threatens to decimate this world Beth must decide - fight, or flee?
This omnibus edition contains The City's Son, The Glass Republic and The Skyscraper Throne plus bonus material!
