 All four Edinburgh Elementals stories in one box set.


THE TROUBLE WITH PIXIES

All Michael wants is a quiet evening in his new home, but an unexpected visit puts paid to that. 

Hattie isn't here to welcome her new neighbour, though. There's something in Michael's attic that shouldn't be there. Several somethings, in fact. 

Hattie says they're invisible to everyone but her. Michael thinks she's crazy. But armed with a paintball gun, Hattie's going to prove him wrong.


TEARS OF GOLD

By day Cheryl works for a city law firm. By night she breaks into the houses of wealthy Edinburgh citizens and takes what she can.

After stealing a valuable necklace from the home of Hattie Turner, Cheryl can't believe her luck when she discovers the object has magical abilities.

But joy soon turns to misery, as the necklace begins to weave its power over her.

Meanwhile, Hattie is determined to get the Brisingamen necklace back under lock and key.


LAND OF THE ICE GIANTS

All Hattie wants to do is get to the Ice Giants kingdom and then get home again to her beloved Edinburgh. Discovering a grouchy forest spirit in the boot of her broken-down car is the last thing she needs on this dangerous mission.

​But on reaching the kingdom, she and the forest spirit, Vik, don't receive the warmest of welcomes. And when things turn deadly, Hattie may soon come to rely on Vik for her very survival.


FESTIVAL  OF FIENDS

"Sorry, are you trying to tell me you don't find me funny?"

With the world descending on Edinburgh for the annual summer festivals, Hattie Turner decides to make a bit of money by renting out her spare room to a festival-goer. Unlucky for her, her new tenant turns out to be Lyle Sanders who, according to Hattie, is the world's least funniest comedian, despite his success. Worst still, Lyle takes a shine to his new landlady.

Meanwhile, Hattie's neighbour Michael has received some attention himself, in the shape of the impossibly glamorous jazz singer, Nicole Daria. Michael can't believe his luck that this beautiful, alluring temptress is interested in a guy like him. But he should know that luck sometimes has nothing to do with it...

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • From the National Book Award–winning author of Between the World and Me, a boldly conjured debut novel about a magical gift, a devastating loss, and an underground war for freedom.

“This potent book about America’s most disgraceful sin establishes [Ta-Nehisi Coates] as a first-rate novelist.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Nearly every paragraph is laced through with dense, gorgeously evocative descriptions of a vanished world and steeped in its own vivid vocabulary.”—Entertainment Weekly

Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.

So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the Deep South to dangerously idealistic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures.

This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today’s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen.

Praise for The Water Dancer

“Ta-Nehisi Coates is the most important essayist in a generation and a writer who changed the national political conversation about race with his 2015 memoir, Between the World and Me. So naturally his debut novel comes with slightly unrealistic expectations—and then proceeds to exceed them. The Water Dancer . . . is a work of both staggering imagination and rich historical significance. . . . What’s most powerful is the way Coates enlists his notions of the fantastic, as well as his fluid prose, to probe a wound that never seems to heal. . . . Timeless and instantly canon-worthy.”—Rolling Stone
