From the internationally bestselling author of Chocolat and The Gospel of Loki comes The Moonlight Market, a spellbinding modern fairytale where worlds collide and magic is hidden beneath the streets of London.

Joanne Harris MBE is know for her extremely diverse writing, covering aspects of magic realism, suspense, historical fiction, mythology and fantasy. In 2000, her 1999 novel Chocolat was adapted to the screen, starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. Now, she returns to our bookshop for The Moonlight Market, a must-read for fans of Neil Gaiman, V. E. Schwab, and Erin Morgenstern.

The story follows a young photographer through the secret layers of London as he discovers an entire world captured in the negatives, one where a magic war, a lost prince, and an epic romance are waiting to be found...

Tom is a photographer. Orphaned, lonely, lost in his work, he has no intention of falling in love. And yet, love finds him in the shape of beautiful Vanessa, who lives a dangerous double life in the heart of London's King's Cross.

Tom's pursuit of Vanessa leads him to discover an alternate world, hiding in plain sight among the streets and rooftops of London; a world unseen by common folk and inhabited by strange and colourful beings, in which two warring factions - one of night, one of light - wage war for the sake of a long-lost love and a prince of sun and starlight.
