The White City Summary

The White City by Simon Morden

Award-winning author Simon Morden's stunning quest continues, unravelling magic and uncovering secrets on the way . . .

LET'S FACE IT, NONE OF US DESERVE TO BE SAVED.

Since escaping London's inferno, Mary and Dalip have fought monsters and won - though in the magical world of Down, the most frightening monsters come from within.

Now they hold the greatest of treasures: maps that reveal the way to the White City, where they can find the answers they're looking for, and learn the secrets of Down.

But to get there they must rely on Crows, who has already betrayed them at every turn. As they battle their way towards the one place in all of Down without magic, they must ask themselves how far they will go to find their way home.

After all, if there's one thing the White City offers those brave enough to enter, it's more than they bargained for.

SIMON MORDEN'S DOWN STATION WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY QUEST FOR MEANING AND IDENTITY. NOW HE'S LEADING US TO THE KIND OF TRUTHS THAT LEAVE US CHANGED.

The White City Reviews

This is a very fast paced book, with intense moments of danger as well as being full of wonder. There are so many things to discover in Down not only geographically but historically...Morden has written a book full of mysteries that are just waiting to be discovered. * Fantasy Book Review *
Down Station is a fun and interesting read which I zipped through in no time at all! * Books By Proxy *
Dripping with realism and grittiness. Fascinating and compulsive reading. * LOVE READING *
The world is an interesting and well realised one. The central characters are believable and feel entirely human (though I would like to see more of the supporting cast in the sequel). The plot rattles along nicely, and kept me enthralled to the last page * Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews *
Once again Simon Morden takes the fantasy genre and moulds it wonderfully...What makes Down Station so great is the immaculate pacing and the way character shapes fate for each of the well-drawn main characters * The Sun *
It's the character's experiences that make this a fresh take on the "cut off from civilisation" subgenre...we're drawn in by their responses to this world * SFX *
there are horrors that surprise as well as moments of wonder. The story is patient, and every sequence is both a physical battle and philosophical teaching that merge with well-placed hooks * Sci-Fi Now *
amazingly original mindblowing ideas that completely rewrote and reconfigured a familiar London into something much more sinister and post-apocalyptic. * The Digital Fix *
This is an interesting read with a great new world to immerse yourself in, it is fantastical and thrilling, a great book to add to your fantasy/sci-fi shelf. * Red Heather Duff Blogspot *
