"The end always happens faster than you think.­" Once there were hundreds of members of the Oversight, the brave souls who guard the borders between the mundane and the magic. Now there are only five. When a vagabond brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, she could answer their hopes for new recruit, or she could be the instrument of their downfall.

From HBO scriptwriter Charlie Fletcher comes a wildly original and hugely entertaining new fantasy series for a generation that has grown up with Harry Potter and Neil Gaiman.

The Last Hand of the Oversight still patrols the border between the natural and supranatural, holding a candle to the darkness. But this new Hand is unproven, its fresh members untrained, its veterans weary and battle-­scarred. Their vulnerability brings new enemies into the city, and surprising new allies from across the sea.
But most surprising of all are new revelations about the Oversight's past, revelations that will expose the true peril of the world in which Sharp and Sara are trapped — the secret of the Black Mirrors, and what lies beyond. And the catastrophic danger that will follow them home, if they ever manage to return.
The dark waters rise. The candles are guttering. But the light still remains.
For now...

A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. Not all the layers are underground and not all the lives belong to the living. Twelve-­year-­old George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. When in a tiny act of rebellion George breaks the head from a stone dragon outside the Natural History Museum he awakes an ancient power. This power has been dormant for centuries but the results are instant and terrifying: A stone Pterodactyl unpeels from the wall and starts chasing George. He runs for his life but it seems that no one can see what he's running from. No one except Edie who is also trapped in this strange world. And this is just the beginning as the statues of London awake… This is a story of statues coming to life; of a struggle between those with souls and those without; of how one boy who has been emotionally abandoned manages to find hope.
