A magical wintry storyÂ filled with adventure, wonder and edge-of-your-seat excitement, this is the perfect read forÂ fans of Michelle Harrison, Piers Torday and Emma Carroll.
‘Once an adventure digs its claws in, there is not an awful lot you can do about it.Â Especially when magic is involved . . .’
In the snowy kingdom of Erkenwald, whales glide between icebergs, wolves huntÂ on the tundra and polar bears roam the glaciers.Â But the people of this land aren’t so easy to find -Â because Erkenwald is ruled by an evilÂ Ice Queen and the tribes must stay hidden orÂ risk becoming her prisoners at Winterfang Palace.
Join Eska, a girl who breaks free from a cursed music box, and Flint, a boyÂ whose inventions could change the fate of Erkenwald forever, as theyÂ journey to the Never Cliffs and beyond in search of an ancient, almost forgotten, song withÂ the power to force the Ice Queen back.
This is a story about an eagleÂ huntress, an inventor and an organ made of icicles. But it is also a storyÂ about belonging, even at the very edges of our world . . .
‘Abi Elphinstone’s books are full of adventure, wit, heart, and, above all, bravery’ Katherine Rundell, author ofÂ The ExplorerÂ ?
