But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

As begins to spread untruths far and wide across her small island community, her tales begin to spiral out of control and she discovers that wherever lies seduce, truths shatter...

    The Lie Tree was shortlisted for 2016's Carnegie Medal.
