Cari Thomas grew up in the Wye Valley area of Wales and, after studying English Literature & Creative Writing at Warwick University and Magazine Journalism at the Cardiff School of Journalism, moved to London. She worked as a journalist and at a creative agency, before finally doing what she'd always wanted to do: quit her job and write a book about magic.

The result is Threadneedle, her debut novel and the first in her Language of Magic series. Be introduced to a world of wild, ancient witchcraft hidden within today's London; where libraries made of books breathe dusty pages beneath the city, where witch clubs serve up magical cocktails and vintage shops sell memories. A world where magic gleams light and very, very dark.

Cari now lives in Bristol with her husband and son. Discover more on her website:

Cari Thomas recommends
The Library Thief (2024)
Kuchenga Shenjé
"If this book's a thief of anything - it was my attention. I was hooked, the story opening with the tantalising traditions of a gothic mystery and then unfurling in unexpected directions, threading themes of identity, sexuality and a woman's impossible choices into an intricate web of mysteries that would not let me go."
Faebound (2024)
(Faebound, book 1)
Saara El-Arifi
"Faebound will ensnare you while sweeping you off your feet."
Herc (2023)
Phoenicia Rogerson
"Hercules had his story, now it's time for everyone else to get their say. Wickedly fun and devilishly dark - the tell-all for our times."
