Praise
"Hardinge's stylish way with prose gives her sprawling debut fantasy a literate yet often silly tone that calls to mind Monty Python."
"Intricate plotting, well-developed and fascinating characters, delicious humor, and exquisite wordcraft envelop readers fully into this richly imagined world."
From the Publisher
Annotation Spying, adventure, thievery, and much more await the reader of FLY BY NIGHT. Twelve-year-old Mosca and her ornery goose, Saracen, join a smooth-talking con artist named Eponymous Clent to experience the wonders beyond their tiny, water-logged town of Chough. In a dreary world were reading is forbidden and the fight between parliament and monarchy is never-ending, Mosca can trust no one. When a powerful lady offers her secretive work, Mosca jumps at the chance, and she must take more chances than ever before. A 2006 Publishers Weekly Book of the Year.
