The Great Phoenix of London

Lindsay Galvin

An exciting new middle-grade historical adventure from the bestselling author of Darwin’s Dragons.

1666. When 11-year-old bookish Gil finds a strange ‘heaven stone’ by the Thames, he never thought it would hatch. Or that so soon after the Great Plague, a small fire in London would become a deadly inferno.

Soon Gil, his phoenix, and his spiky friend Magda must cross the burning city, avoid a terrifying mob, and find a place where they can all be safe.

Get ready to lose your head as the six wonderful women behind the man take centre stage to overthrow her-story. From rumours of scandals and LOTS of lying, to political plays and fabulous frocks, The Six is a story filled with ambition, treason and strong women.
