SIGNED FIRST EDITION: The Revels – Stacey Thomas


A darkly atmospheric debut, Thomas’ Civil War-set page-turner centres on aspiring playwright-turned-witchfinder Nicholas Pearce and the moral dilemma his unique and supernatural ability burdens him with.



The stage is set and the witch-hunt is about to begin.

‘I am no witch. I have not sold my soul to the devil for powers. What I am has never openly been whispered of, yet it is enough that people would hang for it.’

England, 1645.

After his half-brother dies, aspiring playwright Nicholas Pearce is apprenticed to Judge William Percival, an infamous former witch-hunter who is under pressure to resume his old profession.

In a country torn apart by civil war, with escalating tensions between Catholics and Protestants, Royalists and Roundheads, and rumours of witchcraft, Nicholas hides a secret: the dead sing. He hears their secrets, but will he find the courage to speak up to save innocent lives, even if it means putting himself in great danger?

A spellbinding debut novel perfect for fans of Stacey Halls, Laura Purcell and Bridget Collins.
