9780316044745: The Midnight Palace

In the heart of Calcutta lurks a dark mystery....

Set in Calcutta in the 1930s, The Midnight Palace begins on a dark night when an English lieutenant fights to save newborn twins Ben and Sheere from an unthinkable threat. Despite monsoon-force rains and terrible danger lurking around every street corner, the young lieutenant manages to get them to safety, but not without losing his own life. . . .

Years later, on the eve of Ben and Sheere's sixteenth birthday, the mysterious threat reenters their lives. This time, it may be impossible to escape. With the help of their brave friends, the twins will have to take a stand against the terror that watches them in the shadows of the night--and face the most frightening creature in the history of the City of Palaces.

Review:

Murders most foul, chilling crimes and dark deeds... Carlos Ruiz Zafon, author of The Shadow of the Wind, locates his ghost story in The Midnight Palace VOGUE - May 2011 'Set in 1930s Calcutta, this supernatural thriller is gripping and at times scary, but makes for a compelling read." Four Stars WOMAN'S OWN - 30 May 2011 Zafon's young adult fiction was published in Spain long before he became an international sensation, and its fascinating to see, in his second book, premonitory glimpses of The Shadow of the Wind. ..Zafon makes it look so easy but he's in a class of his own. -- Suzi Feay FINANCIAL TIMES - 12 May 2011 Magical mystery about a pair of orphaned twins separated at birth... Why read it? Because you loved the imagination, magic and fantasy of Zafon's blockbuster debut, The Shadow of the Wind. -- 15 Books You Must Read This Summer! ESSENTIALS - July 2011 In a tale of a secret society, a labyrinthine railway station and a shadowy figure from the past, their story and denouement has the hallmarks of the fine writing in the author's best-selling Shadow of the Wind. Choice - July 2011 a cracking mystery... A thoroughly ripping yarn. -- Kate Saunders THE TIMES - 26 June 2011 A beach must-have PRIDE magazine - July 2011 'this is one book that knows how to keep a reader hooked... Exotic terror tale from a master story-teller.' Four stars FLIPSIDE - July 2011 A tremendously atmospheric supernatural thriller and will particularly appeal to those who like a good ghost story told in nineteenth century style by a protagonist narrator looking back years later. THE BOOKBAG.CO.UK His Calcutta has many of the mystical elements that many writers associate with the city but it also shows the political strain of a city subject to years of hostile colonization and ready to break free. Just as importantly Zafon delivers moments of genuine horrors as well as expert plot twists that move the story along. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY This novel's plot is as dark and threatening as the Calcutta night that envelops the opening scenes... The Midnight Palace should not be overlooked by adults in search of literary excellence. USA TODAY - 18 May 2011 ...if you have a taste for mystery, for the supernatural, for characters of mythic strength, loyalty and heroism... then pick this book up and revel in it. ARMADILLO It's fast-moving and never hesitates, and it quickly sketches the eight young people who inhabit its pages as quirky and likeable individuals, from the taciturn artist, Michael, to the fiery and intelligent Isobel. It's also a story about stories: tales from the past are woven into the narrative in an elegant way, with the whole book framed by the narrative of the last surviving member of the group. THE GUARDIAN This dark book is not for the easily scared, but great for thrill-seekers! WOMAN'S WAY
