We’ve been holding onto this for a while now – so eager to show it off too, but we’ve been releasing small teasers on our social media pages. Garden is due for release on Feb 12th – just over a month away. What do you all think?
‘Garden is very charming with some lovely parallels …’ Sharon Sant – Author of The Sky Song trilogy
Inspired by the classic novel The Secret Garden, Jane Yates introduces us to a steampunk world of bio-domes, robots and mysteries. Eleven-year-old Aberdeen is so used to being by herself that all she has to fill her thoughts are stories of mighty dragons and grand castles. But Aberdeen’s world is soon thrown into disarray however; her parents murdered.
Having no choice, Aberdeen is sent to live with her uncle back on Earth where her fascination into her new surroundings begin to take hold. It isn’t long before Aberdeen befriends three other children – Maisy, Peter and Lenard.
Oh, and there’s Frank too, Peter’s robot dog, who completes this special circle of friendship.
Garden is a journey of self-discovery, of trials and friendship. With adventure boundless, Jane Yates follows up her acclaimed Paradox Child trilogy with a new tale for young fans of steampunk and science fiction.
We think this cover is amazing! Aberdeen looks stunning – can you spot Aaron, the golden mechanical bird? Here is the official video trailer too to whet your appetites (we love the tune!). Garden is a carefree novel for ages and one that should definitely be on your bookshelf this year.
Garden is available to preorder from a variety of vendors (links in green).
