Product Details


“Part Dickens, part dystopia and totally immersive; a book as eerie and atmospheric as its sooty muse.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Mr. Vyleta . . . writes with intricacy and imagination and skillful pacing; never once would I have considered putting his book down. . . . In the manner of both a Dickens novel and the best young adult adventure stories (the Harry Potter series among them), the children run away together to uncover the dark secrets of the grown-up world. . . . His ending, which I wouldn’t dare reveal here, is a real firecracker, and the lessons Mr. Vyleta wishes to impart are largehearted.”
—Jennifer Senior, The New York Times

“Compelling. . . . Deliriously imagined. . . . This gas-lamp fantasy at time borders on steampunk through the grimy lens of a dystopian past.” —NPR 

Smoke is one of the most original and enthralling books I have read in a long time. . . . An addictive combination of thriller, fantasy, and historical novel, with a dash of horror. It’s chilling and complex and amazingly imaginative.” 
—Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness

“Astonishing . . . It’s filling in that gaping hole left by both Harry Potter and Philip Pullman’s Northern Lights. Yes, really.”
Stylist (London)

“Flat-out thrilling.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
