Series Info

An intricately woven, suspenseful tale of love, magic, revenge and the lust for gold, set at the far end of the world. Based on the Booker Prize-winning novel.


Critics Consensus: Lucious, but lacking, The Luminaries has style and character to spare, but those looking for a little more depth may be left wanting.
