'An ingenious twist on a classic. Surprisingly tender and moving, completely convincing and gripping'
A powerful and disturbing new take on an original classic.
'THE FALLEN CHILDREN is ATTACK THE BLOCK meets VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED and feels like the London I know. It's very cool'
'Read The Fallen Children if you'd like less middle-class kidlit, allegorical commentary on society and teens, and dead good books'
Owen examines teenage credibility, mob mentality and how love, or the lack of it, shapes any kind of life. This is a riveting refashioning of a science fiction classic.
Engrossing, unusual, and unpatronising
The best book I've read in ages . . . At its surface, The Fallen Children is a pacy, gripping, intriguing superhero origin story, but beneath that, it's a poignant examination of the extent to which modern society spits on its young adults.
