Cover Reveal: The White City

Welcome to Down Station. Next stop, the White City. Please stand clear of any open doorways – they might lead you to a land of possibilities, of monsters, and of secrets you hoped would never be revealed. . .

THE WHITE CITY is Simon Morden’s follow-up to the sublime DOWN STATION, and we’ve once again worked with the absolutely incredible design gurus over at Blacksheep for the cover. And once again we’ve been stunned by their gorgeous design, which so brilliantly captures the light and the dark of Simon’s land of Down, where you can be dazzled and terrified in equal measure. This is such a sumptuous tribute to what you’ll find waiting for you inside this sequel. Here it is in all its glory!

Since escaping London’s inferno, Mary and Dalip have fought monsters and won – though in the magical world of Down, the most frightening monsters come from within.

Now they hold the greatest of treasures: maps that reveal the way to the White City, where they can find the answers they’re looking for, and learn the secrets of Down.

But to get there they must rely on Crows, who has already betrayed them at every turn. As they battle their way towards the one place in all of Down without magic, they must ask themselves how far they will go to find their way home.

After all, if there’s one thing the White City offers those brave enough to enter, it’s more than they bargained for.


THE WHITE CITY will be available in paperback and ebook from October 27th 2016.
