"Exciting, exhilaring, scary and moving in equal measure, The Oversight is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realized." - M. R. Carey
"The end always happens faster than you think."

Once there were hundreds of members of the Oversight, the brave souls who guard the borders between the mundane and the magic. Now there are only five.

When a vagabond brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, she could answer their hopes for new recruit, or she could be the instrument of their downfall.

"A fantastical, fast paced adventure.""-- "Publishing News "on The Stoneheart Trilogy "Fletcher successfully draws readers in with action and a continuously developing backstory for each of the characters." ""School Library Journal "on The Stoneheart Trilogy"" "A fantastical, fast paced adventure."" ""Publishing News "on The Stoneheart Trilogy"" "The second book can't come soon enough." ""Booklist "on" The Oversight""" "[The] characters inhabit a complex, beautifully plotted adventure that begins a fantasy series. Go on and relish The Oversight without further prompting - then we can all wait eagerly for more!"--Locus on The Oversight "It's full of clever blendings of real history and imaginary embellishments.... compelling and hypnotic."--Boing Boing on The Oversight "Utterly enthralling: Charles Dickens meets Susanna Clarke."--Lou Morgan on The Oversight "The second book can't come soon enough."--Booklist on The Oversight "I couldn't stop reading... It really is a richly atmospheric and intensely readable slice of Victoriana: gothic as all get out, with a splendidly eerie sense of the way the unearthly lies cheek-by-jowl with the mundane. Cheerable goodies, grotesque baddies: the whole book is adventurous and flavorsome and gripping. I really enjoyed it."--Adam Roberts on The Overight "Fletcher's Victorian London is juicily vivid, and laced with macabre wit. There's a real sense of grim danger, both natural and unnatural, hungrily awaiting the slightest mis-step."--Frances Hardinge on The Oversight "A teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realized. This feels like the start of something amazing."--M. R. Carey on The Oversight
