Deadly machines. Strange creatures. A sinister secret.
A crew of treasure hunters risking their hearts to uncover the truth.
But they’ll have to find the lost House of Matchsticks first ...
"Readers will be swept away ... [House of Matchsticks] is a literary rarity." –The Booklife Prize
On the surface of the sea, a burning island beckons the Collector.
Approaching the fire, the Collector bears witness to a vicious crime. When he realizes an innocent life will be lost—a baby, swathed in a bundle and left to die in a floating rowboat—the Collector makes a choice that will change his course forever.
So begins House of Matchsticks, a brand-new, unforgettable YA Fantasy series set in a world called Benemourne, where a mysterious ore powers a society rife with danger.
Follow Isaline, a girl who dreams of becoming a City Watchman in Benemourne’s capital, and Jack, a former treasure hunter with a dark and painful obsession, as they are dragged with the Collector into the beginnings of a deadly adventure.
House of Matchsticks is a third person, multi-POV series with found family, slow-burn romance (straight and LGBTQ+), and a healthy dose of action/adventure. This is Part 1 in the series. Expect a cliffhanger.
The House of Matchsticks series:
... and more to come.
PS. Your first clue: it’s all upside down.
