There were twenty magical children born that year. Nineteen, if you count the one that died. The Minister ordered that the nineteen children be shipped to the Tower to be worked and drained to nothing, and that the dead child be thrown on the rubbish heap, and never spoken of again. But the dead baby had other plans. When the half-drunk junk man witnesses the half-decayed corpse becoming a living, breathing, healthy baby, he knows at once that he must protect the child from the clutches of the Minister. Enlisting the help of the formidable egg woman and the sagacious constable, he manages to keep the existence of the child a secret.

But children grow. And so does magic. And secrets long to be told.

Never read anything similar!!

Never read anything similar, really really good story and shifting between than and now giving the current story arc a background. The beginning and the heartbreaking tention towards the end create a fashinating and beautiful circle for the story and leave me wanting more, much more. This just feels like a beginning of a much bigger story and I want to know more!!
