Summary

With an ever-present admiration for the hidden mysteries of our world, Monstrous Devices plunges listeners into a gripping adventure that's sure to surprise.

On a winter's day in a British town, 12-year-old Alex receives a package in the post: an old tin robot from his grandfather. 'This one is special,' says the enclosed note, but when strange events start occurring around him, Alex begins to suspect this small toy is more than special: it might be deadly. Just as things are getting out of hand, Alex's grandfather arrives, whisking him away from his otherwise humdrum life and into a world of strange, macabre magic. From Paris to Prague, they flee across snowy Europe in a quest to unravel the riddle of the little robot, and outwit relentless assassins of the human and mechanical kind. How does Alex's grandfather know them? And can Alex safely harness the robot's power, or will it fall into the wrong, wicked hands?

Critic reviews

"I enjoyed everything about Damien Love's debut – its title, its breakneck action, its sly sense of humour. I wish my first novel had been as imaginative and assured." (Anthony Horowitz, New York Times best-selling author of the Alex Rider series)
