Restoration by Angela Slatter
"Another enjoyable instalment in the Verity Fassbinder series, following a sarcastic, witty and edgy heroine who now has even more to lose with a baby and family.

As usual, the complex and detailed plot line follows Verity's investigations in the W..." Read more of this review »

“Memories change and shift, ferment in our minds; they are never the same when we take them out as they were when first we put them in.”
Angela Slatter, Of Sorrow and Such

“Confess how you worship and obey Lucifer, the fallen one.”
"You fool. I worship none, and what woman with a brain in her head obeys anyone, let alone a failure?”
Angela Slatter, Of Sorrow and Such

“there’s a part of us which is still yearning for the tales that we were told as children, the ones that shaped us, the ones that taught us the value of imagination. Fairy tales may very well be the greatest of all the tales we’ll ever read; when we’re first given them they seem so simple, so easily recognisable—and as we grow older, we see the darkness behind them, their passions and their horrors.”
Angela Slatter, Sourdough and Other Stories
