A CHILLING TALE OF YOUNG LUST, OBSESSION AND REVENGE
Hypnotic, vivid and unputdownable, Sally Emerson’s novel about two erratic adolescents pulsates with lust and black humour.
Tessa is only thirteen when she discovers that she can drive men mad with love – and to their death. Martin is a reclusive pyromaniac and he’s looking for the one woman who can unleash his demonic desires. Their union is obsessional and devastating. Unfurling in a series of compelling diary entries, Fire Child masterfully examines the nature of evil and what it means to be human. Newly re-issued as part of a series of six titles.
