The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne

By Jonathan Stroud

Set in a broken, future England, where gunfights and monsters collide, this is the exciting first title in a phenomenal fantasy teen series by the bestselling children's novelist.

England has been radically changed by a series of catastrophes – large cities have disappeared and London has been replaced by a lagoon. The surviving population exists in fortified towns where they cling to traditional ways, while strangely evolved beasts prowl the wilderness beyond. Conformity is rigidly enforced and those who fall foul of the rules are persecuted: some are killed, others are driven out into the wilds. Only a few fight back – and two of these outlaws, Scarlett McCain and Albert Browne, display an audacity and talent that makes them legends.

  • A fast-paced fantasy adventure filled with thrills, humour and the most charismatic anti-heroes in teen fiction.
  • Jonathan Stroud is the author of the Bartimaeus books, which have sold more than 6 million copies in 35 languages worldwide.
  • His award-winning Lockwood & Co. series is currently in development for Netflix as a TV series adaptation.
