Mesmeric, terrifying and wonderful. North is practically her own genre at this point. (M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS) 
An extraordinary novel that stands with the best of dystopian fiction, with echoes of The Handmaid's Tale (Cory Doctorow on 84K)
Another captivating novel from one of the most intriguing and genre-bending novelists (BOOKLIST on 84K)
North is an original and even dazzling writer, and fans of her work will enjoy this grim tale of capitalism taken to a terrifying extreme (KIRKUS on 84K)
The truly scary thing about 84K is how convincing this dark, brutal class-divided Britain is (SFX (4 1/2 stars))
North demonstrates skill in creating a terrifying setting that feels rooted to the present day . . . Every aspect of life in Theo's Britain is imbued with a menace that feels both recognizable and urgent, and the decisions the characters make as a result feel uncomfortably real. (RT BOOK REVIEWS on 84K)
North's talent shines out (SUNDAY TIMES)
Claire North is a true original, a master of ingenious plotting and feats of imagination (Alex Marwood, author of THE WICKED GIRLS)
Claire North's writing is terrific, smart and entertaining (Patrick Ness)

'MESMERIC, TERRIFYING AND WONDERFUL' M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts
From the award-winning and bestselling author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August and 84K comes a powerful new novel that examines how the choices we make can haunt us forever . . .
South Africa, 1884. William Abbey, an English doctor, watches white colonists lynch a Zulu child. As the boy dies, his mother curses William: wherever he goes, the shadow of her son will follow him. It will never stop, never rest. It can cross oceans and mountains. And if it catches him, the person he loves most in the world will die . . .
But to those in power, William's curse might be a blessing, and as the world slides towards war, William must decide what he's willing to sacrifice in order to survive.
Moving, thought-provoking and utterly gripping, Claire North's extraordinary new novel proves again that she is one of the most original and innovative voices in modern fiction.

Praise for Claire North:
'An original and even dazzling writer' Kirkus
'North goes from strength to strength' Guardian
'A master of ingenious plotting and feats of imagination' Alex Marwood
'North's writing is terrific, smart and entertaining' Patrick Ness
