‘First-class imagination and first-class storytelling’ Jeff Vandermeer, bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy

Walking between the worlds has always been dangerous – but this time V’s facing the loss of all she holds dear.

Verity Fassbinder thought no boss could be worse than her perfectionist ex-boyfriend – until she agreed to work for a fallen angel. The angel is a jealous – and violent – employer, so she’s quit working for the Weyrd Council and sent her family away.

The angel has tasked V with finding two lost treasures. That would be hard even without a vengeful Dusana Nadasy on her heels. And Inspector McIntyre won’t stop calling: the bodies of Normal women who disappeared decades ago are turning up, apparently subjected to Weyrd magics. Angelic demands or not, this isn’t something V can walk away from.

And the angel is getting impatient for results . . .

Slatter at her finest hour’ Thoughts by Tash


Verity has touches of Katniss Everdeen but quickly establishes herself as a strong, likeable and positive female heroine in her own right
Rich and heady as honey mead, potent and earthy as great Scotch, the sublimely dark tales of Angela Slatter are an addictive delight
Neil Snowden, Waterstones
Edgy, hilarious and full of heart - Verity is back and as brilliant as ever!

Simply put: Slatter can write! Beautifully, stylishly, accurately. She forces us to recognise the monsters that are ourselves
Jack Dann, award-winning author of The Memory Cathedral
Slatter [has] gone from strength to strength, armed with first-class imagination and first-class storytelling skills
Jeff Vandermeer, bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy
If you enjoyed American Gods, you'll love this. If you loved the Dresden Files but thought there were not nearly enough females taking charge, Verity is the answer to all your woes
Read at Midnight on Corpselight
Full of black humour and razor-sharp dialogue, it manages to be at once endearing and terrifying. This spellbinding second novel leaves little doubt as to Slatter's immense talent
Reader Dad on Corpselight
A fantastic read, with a heroine who captured my heart. Verity is a combination of tough as nails, with a huge heart, but vulnerable and also not indestructible . . . a cracking read

A brilliant conclusion to the trilogy, Restoration is Slatter at her finest hour

Beautiful, captivating and effortless writing . . . it's almost impossible for you to guess exactly what is likely to happen next
The Never Ending Bookshelf
Vivid, magical and with more mayhem than you can shake a stick at, Restoration is addictive, beautifully written and, as usual, darkly comic throughout. One of my favourite urban fantasy series. Read the entire trilogy and prepare to be entertained. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.
