Out of time.
Ollie had only wanted to make things better at Herrick's End. And he thought he had, until he sees the stark truth spelled out in black-and-white: His friends are in danger, and it's all his fault.
The good news? There might be a solution. The less-good news? It's hidden at the bottom of a deep, dangerous lake. Leaping into that water, he knows, is a monstrously bad idea.
It's also the only idea he's got.
One thing is certain: Ollie's quest to right past wrongs is about to open up a whole new can of wormwalkers in the extraordinary underground world he now calls home.
A Note From the Publisher
Hard Cover: 9781946501554
"Fans of Neil Gaiman will love the Neath! This dark, compelling world practically vibrates off the page with flora and fauna and unravelling secrets, and the plot swoops and swirls in the best of ways. Most of all, though, it's Blanchet's irresistible characters that make you care so deeply about every cavern and creature and narrow escape. She's created an unforgettable hero with Ollie, and I can't wait to find out what he does next."
- Gin Phillips, author of Fierce Kingdom, Family Law, and Come In and Cover Me
"Herrick's Lie is a whirlwind romp through the depths of the Neath, filled with magic, mystery, and twists that will keep you breathless to the last page. This layered fantasy delivers both adventure and heart."
- Susan Bishop Crispell, author of The Holloway Girls, Dreaming in Chocolate, and The Secret Ingredient of Wishes
"Be prepared for high stakes, a uniquely crafted world, a view into history that will have you questioning everything you thought you knew, and a loveable, endearing hero in Ollie Delgato that will have you rooting for him from the start. The second book in this terrific series will have you turning the pages and will leave you eagerly awaiting what comes next!"
- Edwin Hill, author of The Secrets We Share, Watch Her, The Missing Ones, and Little Comfort
