‘A beautiful book...the words Sandling unearths are as delightful as the objects he describes.’ Daily Mail Mudlarking, searching the Thames foreshore, has a long tradition: mudlarks used to be small boys grubbing a living from scrap. Today’s mudlarks unearth relics of the past, from Roman tiles to elegant Georgian pottery. Here are Ted Sandling's most evocative finds, gorgeously photographed. Together they create a mosaic of everyday London life through the centuries, touching on the journeys, pleasures, vices, industries, adornments and comforts of a world city. London in Fragments celebrates the beauty of small things, and makes sense of the intangible connection that found objects give us to the individuals who lost them.

When Lark and Jay Dodge move to Washington State's Shoalwater Peninsula, life falls into a rhythm of house renovation and baby-making until Lark's new neighbor, Bonnie, finds a corpse on the beach. The victim, an outspoken advocate of development, is the ex-wife of another neighbor, a novelist whose house burns in a mysterious fire when he refuses to sell. Circumstantial evidence makes him the prime suspect, but Lark isn't convinced and neither is Bonnie. What they discover puts their lives in jeopardy.

"One person alone can wield the magic of the box, Lark. What we need to find out is if that person is you." "Why didn't you let me bring the box with me?" asked Lark. The earthwitch laughed. "You're sharp, boy. The truth? We didn't dare. We are not about to put the most precious vessel of our combined magical traditions in the hands of a young boy who has not been tested." "Are you prepared to be tested, Lark?" Simon's steel-gray eyes looked into his. "Of course," he said. "What do I need to do?" On the outskirts of the city, a young orphan boy, Lark, is forced to scavenge the muddy flats of the river for treasure in order to survive. When he finds a magical box that cannot be opened, his life changes forever. Lark soon learns that he is destined to battle the Capposeign—the corrupt and evil theocracy that rules the city of Perous with fire magic. However, Lark soon discovers that he has his own sort of magic, earned through a childhood spent in the water. He must quickly learn how to use his power—or die trying. In his quest to take down the Capposeign, Lark must ally with a witch, an artist, a revolutionary, and a strangely familiar and beautiful courtesan. Facing the powerful fire mages will push Lark and his friends to the very limit as they fight to save the city—but will their efforts be enough, or will it all go up in flames? Like Avatar: The Last Airbender meets Assassin's Apprentice, Mudlark is an atmospheric and thought-provoking fantasy adventure by debut author Chris Matthews.
