Catherine Fisher - The Speed of Darkness
Science fiction, myth, time travel and Shakespearean wit and playfulness combine in a stunning sequence of huge imaginative power - the Shakespeare Quartet ... _The Speed of Darkness_ concludes the series which began with _The Obsidian Mirror_, then moved on through _The Box of Red Brocade_ and _The Door in the Moon_. In this final volume, a great storm brews out at sea and batters the Devon coast, flooding vast swathes of land. At Wintercombe Abbey the preceding weeks have been spent in a ferment of experimentation, as Jake Wilde's father, David and Maskelyne work furiously on Operation Leah. They have been practising changing tiny events in the past, in preparation for the rescue of Venn's wife Leah from death, the culmination of their work with the Obsidian Mirror. But in the aftermath of the storm, the Abbey is a drowned house. Where is the Mirror? What has happened to the two halves of the Janus coin? Whose is the mysterious boat wrecked up on the nearby beach? And what plans of mischief and mayhem lay in store for Halloween - the day chosen for Leah's return?
Catherine Fisher - The Box of Red Brocade
Time travel is sf. Fairies are folklore. What happens when you mix the two? And add a final ingredient, Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' ...? On a mission to recover his father lost in time, Jake finds himself in 1940s London. From the rubble of the Blitzed city, a clue leads him to an eccentric seer of ghosts, three sinister children and three strange prophesies. Two of them soon come to pass, but what is the Box of Red Brocade? Does it hold the secret of destroying the Obsidian Mirror? A talking bird, an invisible girl, a walking wood; the second volume of Catherine Fisher's Chronoptika series is packed with mystery, magic and sinister intrigue. 'A new novel by Catherine Fisher, poet and prize-winning novelist is always worth looking out for. _The Obsidian Mirror_ is both thriller and SF, and, being written in Fisher's acid-etched prose, equally satisfying to fans of many genres. 'Amanda Craig, THE TIMES Children's Book of the Week.
Catherine Fisher - Obsidian Mirror
TIME TRAVEL MEETS SCARY FAIRIES - but there's so much more to Catherine Fisher's brilliant Shakespeare Quartet which begins with _The Obsidian Mirror_... Jake's father disappears while working on mysterious experiments with the obsessive, reclusive Oberon Venn. Jake is convinced Venn has murdered him. But the truth he finds at the snow-bound Wintercombe Abbey is far stranger ... The experiments concerned a black mirror, which is a portal to both the past and the future. Venn is not alone in wanting to use its powers. Strangers begin gathering in and around Venn's estate: Sarah - a runaway, who appears out of nowhere and is clearly not what she says, Maskelyne - who claims the mirror was stolen from him in some past century. There are others, a product of the mirror's power to twist time. And a tribe of elemental beings surround this isolated estate, fey, cold, untrustworthy, and filled with hate for humans. But of them all, Jake is hell-bent on using the mirror to get to the truth. Whatever the cost, he must learn what really happened to his father.

Catherine Fisher - Incarceron
Üdvözlünk Incarceronban! A reményt hagyd a kapuknál, és készülj fel egy véres, kegyetlen harcra a túlélésért. Ugyanis Incarceron nem egy egyszerű börtön, nem csak elzár a külvilágtól, hanem szereti kínozni a bentlakókat, játszik az életükkel és elszórakoztatja magát. Mert Incarceron él… És itt él Finn, aki nem emlékszik a múltjára, csak hogy pár éve egy cellában tért magához. Látomások gyötrik, amik azzal kecsegtetik, hogy talán Odakint született, és pont ezért tekintik néhányan a kulcsnak ahhoz, hogy megszökjenek. De vajon kicsoda igazából Finn és tényleg van-e kiút vagy csak legenda az egész? Odakint pedig, Claudia, Incarceron Igazgatójának lánya küzd a maga módján a szabadságáért. Ugyanis hiába él nemesként, egy olyan világban, ahol csak a gazdagok élvezhetik a technika vívmányait, így sem élhet úgy, ahogy akar, ugyanis miután bevezették a Protokollt, hogy egy utópisztikus világot teremtsenek, megállították az időt.

Catherine Fisher - Incarceron (angol)
The shifting landscapes, unexpected plot punches, and bold, brave characters found in Catherine Fisher's Incarceron are nothing short of thrilling: fans of Garth Nix and Suzanne Collins will take to this epic, twisty fantasy instantly, but it's also the kind of book that will draw in the most hesitant fantasy reader. The mysterious world of Incarceron—and its factions of daring Prisoners, led by an incorrigible team in Finn and Claudia, who are both searching for a means of escape—is wonderfully imagined, at once frightening and full of seduction, and marks the beginning of an addictive new series.
