Publisher Review

The children will need every ounce of courage - and a whisper of magic - if they are to survive. Perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone, Sophie Anderson and Catherine Doyle. * Librarian's Book Choice, School Zone * It's an unusual juxtaposition - the harsh world of political prisoners in a forced labour camp versus one of ice castles, spirit children and giant eagles. Katharine Orton pulls it off brilliantly. * Bookseller * An engrossing first novel by Katharine Orton...this is fantasy at its glutinous best. * The Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year - Children's & Stocking Fillers * It's a thick book and some chapters are scary but it's so interesting and surprising that you won't want to put it down! * Layla (Age 10), National Geographic Kids * A tale that sparkles with frosty magic. * Thomas Taylor *
