the princess and the orrery

No. 1 AMAZON BESTSELLER!

The Princess and the Orrery is the third installment in The Pathways Tree series.

Seven, the last surviving genie, is out for revenge.

Betrayed by the woman he loves, kidnapped, tortured, and separated from the source of his power, his only goal is to punish the people who have wronged him.

That is, until he is forced to work with Amelia.

Amelia is bright, precocious and does not have time for his vendetta. She is working on a machine designed to map the planets, an orrery, and has been promised a permanent home with the Sisterhood of Cultivators if she succeeds. The only problem is, the orrery is a lot more than a simple machine - it is also a doorway. And when a door is left open, anything might come through…

So when Seven realises what it is Amelia is building and the danger it presents, he must make a choice - the hardest choice he has ever faced: to act selflessly.

Can Seven put aside his own wishes in order to play the hero and save the world?

And, more importantly, does he even want to?

The Princess And The Orrery is the third novel in The Pathways Tree series, and sees the return of the ever-charming genie, Seven, along with fan favourites Bea, Melly, Hemmings, Joan, Mistasinon and Chokey. Set in the spaces between fact and fiction, myth and modernity, The Princess And The Orrery will have you turning the pages to find out what happens next!



This series just keeps getting better; flawless, crisp writing, incredibly dense interwoven plotting and humour too! The characters are developing as we read along and are given real emotional depth as we learn more about them and share the suspense of their triumphs and disasters.

Book blurb often makes such spurious claims as “reads like Pratchett” or for fans of “insert famous author name here” but in all honesty, as a long standing Pratchett fan, I had to double check a few times that it hadn’t in fact been written by Pratchett’s ghost!
Cannot wait until the next installment!
