The Great Trans-Siberian Express comes to life in a novel of wild imagination, perfect for fans of Piranesi, Babel, The Night Circus and Jessie Burton

It is said there is a price that every passenger must pay. A price beyond the cost of a ticket. It is the end of the 19th Century and the world is awash with marvels. But there is nothing
so marvellous as the Wastelands: a terrain of terrible miracles that lies between Beijing and Moscow.
Nothing touches this abandoned wilderness except the Great Trans-Siberian Express, an impenetrable train built to carry cargo across continents but which now transports anyone
who dares to cross the shadowy Wastelands.
On to the platform steps a curious cast of characters: a grieving woman with a borrowed name, a famous child born on the train and a disgraced naturalist, all heading for the
Great Exhibition in Moscow.
But the old rules are changing, and there are whispers that the train isn’t safe. As secrets begin to unravel, the passengers and crew must survive their journey through the
Wastelands together – even as something uncontrollable seems to be breaking in . . .

‘I urge everybody to pick up a copy’ STUART TURTON
‘Be warned – once you step into The Cautious Traveller’s Guide to the
Wastelands, you’ll never want to disembark’ SAMANTHA SHANNON
‘Wild and wonderful . . . completely captivating’ JENNIFER SAINT
‘Mysterious and clever and brilliant’ NATASHA PULLEY
