Sinopsis: Jack is the chosen one, the Radiant Boy the Magus needs in order to perfect the alchemy that will transform London of the 1600s into a golden city. But Jack isn't the kind of boy who will do what he is told by an evil genius, and he is soon involved in an epic and nail-biting adventure, featuring dragons, knights and Queen Elizabeth I, as he battles to save London.

Críticas: `An inventive and heroic story'
--Julia Eccleshare,

`Written with her characteristic energy, ambition and inventiveness . . . Winterson's first kindly, loving mother is a touching creation'
--The Times The Times

`Reading this book is like sitting entranced before a flickering series of magic lantern slides . . . Winterson takes her young readers on an exhilarating journey through Elizabethan London . . . the exuberant storytelling and wit are beautifully and unobtrusively grounded by psychological truth-telling . . . a marvellous book for both young and old readers - I look forward to the third in the series which is surely promised by the tantalising conclusion'
--Books for Keeps

'Very contemporary, pacey and imaginative' --Teen Titles Magazine

`If you want true literary genius, read Jeanette Winterson's young-adult novels, a stunning new facet of her career which began with Tanglewreck. They're too clever for me to summarise'

`A wonderful book to read aloud to pupils in both KS2 and 3, as the language captures the essence of oral storytelling . . . The quality of the writing carries the reader through the book with ease, a joy'
--NATE Classroom
