We found my brother in the skybog.
It was me that found him.
Boson Quirk is dead, face-down in a bog of stars. Almost everyone in Carrick said that the boy was a monster, and now Fermion is sure that the townspeople are looking sideways at her, wondering if she’ll go the way of her cursed, mad twin. When a new voice rises inside her, Fermion begins to wonder the same thing. The voice tells her that the answer to Boson’s Affliction lies on the Other Island, the one that everyone says is bristling with gods and monsters. But what waits for her there? Surely it is madness to pursue the answer?
Tantony is the fantastic new novel by Ananda Braxton-Smith. Ananda’s debut novel, Merrow, wowed critics with a shortlisting for the Aurealis Awards (winner announced tonight) and longlisting in the 2010 INKY awards. Merrow is also a CBCA Notable award-winner and we think that Tantony lives up to all expectations!
