Urgle

By Meaghan McIsaac

An exciting, heart-breaking debut - The Knife of Never Letting Go meets Stand by Me.

Abandoned at birth, the Brothers of the Ikkuma Pit know no mothers. They fend for themselves, each training their Little Brother to survive – until they grow into men and it's time for their Leaving Day. No boy knows what’s beyond the forest. No Brother who left has ever come back. Until now . . . ‘An imaginative world with the glint of originality . . . richly conceived’ Sunday Times ‘The writing [is] sharp and funny, the boys [are] an arresting mixture of toughness and tenderness Guardian

  • Urgle is a gripping, imaginative debut, with a world comparable to Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking trilogy.
  • This is Meaghan McIsaac's debut novel - young and promotable, she is a star in the making.
  • Heart-warming but completely gripping action-adventure for readers of 10+.
