A young orphan endevours to find out who has stolen the relics of a sacred saint which protect the city of Venice.
Young orphan Lily has grown up in a grim, prison-like convent. Her only freedom is walking the beautiful streets of Venice, dreaming of escape...of a family...of being loved.
Then someone tries to steal the bones of Venice's beloved Saint Lucy. Without her protection, the city's vibrant colours fade to grey. And soon, the Venetians start to turn on one another.
If Lily can't find a way to save Saint Lucy, Venice - the only home she's ever known - will descend into darkness forever.
A magical adventure set amongst mysterious canals and filled with monstrous eels, moody mermaids and menacing curses.
NOTE : Includes several violent scenes and deaths, including a murder that the main character and another young teenager are forced to commit, and the death of a baby who was left outside in the snow by nuns at a convent. Not for the faint hearted.
