More than a decade has passed since the events of PORCELAIN: A Gothic Fairy Tale, and Child has become Lady. Inheritor of all of Uncle’s secrets and wealth, she has continued his work, becoming equally as isolated in her quest to refine the Porcelain and put right past mistakes.
With the Porcelain more sought after than ever, Lady comes to the attention of a ruthlessly ambitious General who desires inhuman soldiers for the war effort and won’t take no for an answer. Other, more human, problems rear their head when a handsome young Captain discovers a secret part of Lady’s life.
Faced with impossible choices, Lady must forge her own path through the complexities of love and war.
Suggested for Young Adults and Above.

“It was refreshing to read Bone China and see a woman that was so sure of herself and her capabilities. Lady goes through a whole range of emotions throughout the story. She feels joy, fear, love, rage. But that knowledge, that certainty remains.” Christa Seeley (Women Write About Comics)
“PORCELAIN is set in a rich, fully realized world that is eerily familiar yet deliciously strange. Read and Wildgoose work in perfect tandem to produce a sumptuously illustrated tale full of magic, wonder, and heartbreak.” Jason Wilkins (Broken Frontier)
“This book will also 100 per cent ruin you for any (yes any) comic that you read after it, in my view. It is so richly paced, drawn and coloured that I challenge you not to read it in one sitting.” Antony Esmond (downthetubes.net)
