Back of the Book
A single phone call from halfway across the world is all it takes to bring her home . . . ‘Ellie, something bad has happened.’
Desperate to escape her ‘kid from the scrapyard’ reputation, Ellie Rook has forged a new life for herself abroad, but tragedy strikes when her mother disappears
near a notorious waterfall. Here, according to local legend, the warrior queen Finella jumped to her death after killing a king. In the wake of her mother’s disappearance, Ellie is forced to confront some disturbing truths about the family she left behind and the woman she has become.
Can a long-dead queen hold the key to Ellie’s survival? And how far will she go to right a wrong?
The Unmaking of Ellie Rook is a dark psychological thriller with masterful characterisation, an evocative sense of
place, and a strong and complicated female protagonist.
This novel cements Sandra Ireland’s place as a master of contemporary Gothic storytelling.
I really enjoyed reading this. This was I thought the cover was fantastic, the plotline and prose was well developed and flowed well. I thought the characters were interesting and well identified. Would highly recommend this…
