Winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2015, The Lie Tree is a dark and powerful novel from universally acclaimed author, Frances Hardinge, and illustrated by Children's Laureate, Chris Riddell

It was not enough. All knowledge- any knowledge - called to Faith, and there was a delicious, poisonous pleasure in stealing it unseen.

Faith has a thirst for science and secrets that the rigid confines of her class cannot supress. And so it is that she discovers her disgraced father's journals, filled with the scribbled notes and theories of a man driven close to madness. Tales of a strange tree which, when told a lie, will uncover a truth: the greater the lie, the greater the truth revealed to the liar. Faith's search for the tree leads her into great danger - for where lies seduce, truths shatter . . .

The Lie Tree: Illustrated Edition is packed full of gorgeous black and white illustrations by double Kate Greenaway Medal winning-illustrator, Chris Riddell, author of the Goth Girl and Ottoline series.

Fun and ingenious, with plenty of cliffhangers [and] a healthy dash of feminism. Guardian Review

Hardinge is a hugely talented writer of tireless invention and prose. Guardian Hardinge writes with energy and verve. The Times

Brilliant, dark, thrilling, utterly original. -- Patrick Ness

I loved this book so much. -- Lucy Mangan

A sinuously beguiling tale of faith, science and murder. Sunday Times News Review

A substantial text that is complex and intelligent: a lustrous, delicious romp about evolution and feminism ... The vivid, beautifully powerful whole plays with genre, language and expectation. -- Philip Womack Daily Telegraph

This historical fantasy, written with Hardinge's rare precision and originality of language, illuminates the Victorian age and resonates for ours. -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times Children's Book of the Year

Throwing evolution, feminism and revenge tragedy together, The Lie Tree is a thrilling, gleamingly involving novel that anyone might enjoy, with gorgeous, lush writing matched by a vividly hooking plot. -- Philip Womack The Literary Review

Stylishly imaginative. New Statesman

The Lie Tree is a fantastic story. It is an important book, not only because it is a great narrative, with great characterization, but because its central message of possibility for an intelligent girl who is out of touch for the age in which she lives is a very important one and relevant for today. -- James Heneage, Chair of the Costa Judges

A new novel by Hardinge is always an event and this latest has her usual precision and originality of language, while telling an absorbing historical tale. Sunday Times
