Jess will spend the rest of her life in Fellside, a maximum security prison in the north of England, for starting a fire that killed a 10 year old boy while she was high on drugs. It’s a prison where the walls can talk, and the voice speaking to Jess will force her to confront what she has done. Her time in Fellside will lead her onto a path that will ultimately redeem her, or kill her.
M. R. Carey is a fairy new author, and one to keep an eye out for. I love his writing; he makes his fantasy very real by expressing human nature in a very bitter-sweet way that allows his readers to feel what the characters feel, and understand why they do what they do. He is an author who I will certainly be reading more of in the future.
