There are lots of stories about people who want to live forever:

This is not one of those stories.

This is a story about someone who wants to stop...

Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except

he's a thousand years old and can remember the last

Viking invasion of England.

So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire,

and the modern world comes crashing in,

Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance and a different way to live...

...which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.

A breathtakingly epic story that you won't be able to put down.

"An original, surprising, moving and compelling read - I loved it!"
