Summary from Amazon.co.uk:

A cleverly interlinked novel written in four parts by PRINTZ AWARD-winning author, Marcus Sedgwick, about survival and discovery, and about the effect of the spiral, a symbol that has no end, on all our lives. The spiral has existed as long as time has existed. It's there when a girl walks through the forest, the moist green air clinging to her skin. There centuries later in a pleasant green dale, hiding the treacherous waters of Golden Beck that take Anna, who they call a witch. There on the other side of the world, where a mad poet watches the waves and knows the horrors they hide, and far into the future as Keir Bowman realises his destiny. Each takes their next step in life. None will ever go back to the same place. And so their journeys begin...


A new Marcus Sedgwick book! Need I say more?! Well okay, if I must...

The Ghosts of Heaven sounds like the most unusual Sedgwick book yet, and that's saying something. I love that it's split into four parts, and it just sounds so... gothic? Creepy? Dark? All of the above! Also: look at that cover. Happy sigh.
