The Glass Republic - Signed Copy, by Tom Pollock

Book 2 of The Skyscraper Throne trilogy: Exquisitely written urban fantasy tellinga story about family, friends and monsters, and how you can't always tell which is which. 

In the gripping sequel to The City's Son, Pen returns to London-Under-Glass when her mirror sister - and biggest secret - is abducted. 

Perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Philip Reeve's Railhead Series.

The Heroes:

  • Beth Bradley – maverick graffiti artist & runaway turn revolutionary leader
  • Parva Khan – a.k.a. Pen, poet, voice of reason & keeper of secrets
  • Filius Viae – London’s ragged crown prince, hunter of rail wraiths & the city’s own son...

Hidden under the surface of everyday London is a city of monsters and miracles, where wild train spirits stampede over the tracks and glass-skinned dancers with glowing veins light the streets.  All three heroes face a series of desperate challenges and must race through a bizarre urban wonderland, on both sides of the looking glass, searching for a way to save the city they love…
