Product Details


‘A book as rich with wonder as the market in its pages. Galey’s London is a world where anything – anything – is for sale: a glance, the feeling of moonlight, true love. Careful or you might end up bartering your heart away.’ Patrick Ness, bestselling author of The Chaos Walking Trilogy

‘Magical and literary, A Market of Dreams and Destiny ensnares you in layers and webs of fantasy and alternate history. Galey weaves a fae-touched world where anything can be bought or sold, leaving you to wonder what you would trade to visit it.’ David R. Slayton, author of the Adam Binder novels

‘You’re in for the fantasy thrill of the year with A Market of Dreams and Destiny! Deri is our heroic queer navigator through a fascinating, frightening world, like the lead of some eighties dark fantasy film we never got (but always deserved). More, please, Trip Galey!’ Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and Your Lonely Nights Are Over

‘Intriguing and atmospheric, this compelling tale of drama and danger in the shadows of a goblin market under an alternate Victorian London more than delivers on its promises.’ Juliet E. McKenna, author of The Cleaving and The Thief’s Gamble

‘A perfect balance of romance, risk, and magic, come buy come buy this enchanting debut.’ Fantasy Hive

‘If, like me, you have ever longed to nibble on forbidden fruit, if you have ever wished to enter into your own foolish faerie bargain, then read this book. Deliciously written and drenched in imagination, A Market of Dreams and Destiny builds on the wicked allure of Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market while examining what happens in a world when literally everything can be bottled and sold for the right price.’ Shveta Thakrar, author of the Andre Norton Nebula Award finalist Star Daughter and The Dream Runners

‘An astonishing feat of the imagination, every page bursting with fantastical detail. Trip Galey’s debut is striking, and deserves to be celebrated.’ Oliver K. Langmead, author of Birds of Paradise and Glitterat

‘I traded a handful of hours for Galey’s beautiful epic of an other-London full of magical deals, audacious schemes, outrageous romance and a talking cat. Trip’s birthed something really rather extraordinary.’ J.L. Worrad, author of Pennyblade and The Keep Within

‘Intoxicating. A thrilling mix of the magical, the monstrous and the mercantile. Set in an ingenious alternative London with a main character pairing you can’t help but love, Galey’s cocktail of enchantment, romance and dangerous bargains swept me away.’ Tom Pollock, author of The Skyscraper Throne trilogy

‘I was enthralled by this world, where fairy merchants strike bargains with the precision of contract lawyers. The goblin market shines like enchanted gold, whimsical with dark undercurrents. The tension ratchets up with every trade, and Deri is the loophole-finding rogue we all wish we could be.’ A.J. Lancaster, author of The Lord of Stariel

‘Galey has created a world you can step inside, full of texture and descriptions so rich you can almost experience the market for yourself… A cracking read all round!’ Courtney Smyth, author of The Undetectables
