Utterly Dark and the Tides of Time is on its way! The third book in the Utterly Dark trilogy begins on Utterly’s home island of Wildsea, in the spring of 1812. It begins with her keeping the promise she made in Utterly Dark and the Heart of the Wild to rejoin the Gorm in the depths of the sea. But the Gorm’s power extends not just throughout the oceans but through time too, and pretty soon Utterly finds herself in trouble in the strange, futuristic Wildsea of the year 1971. Meanwhile, back in the Regency era, her friends have troubles of their own. Cover art and interior illustrations are by Paddy Donnelly, and the book will be published in September.
