I love the names. Wart, Lugg, Toff. Their monosyllabic speaking and the sort of guttural sounds of their names conveys some sort of primal nature to them.

I am such a fan of your vocabulary for this age group. Thank you for the flashy and exciting words that can tickle everyone - rather than watered down for understanding. I shouldn't ask for more to be excited about - but I wonder if Carson Ellis will be illustrating?!

I like it. Thanks for sharing the sneak peak. I have thoroughly enjoyed your previous novels, especially the first in the Wildwood series. Is there a place one can pre-order a signed copy of 'The Stars Did Wander Darkling". I had previously pre-ordered signed copies of your other novels through Powells. Thanks Colin!
