Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018
A perfect winter adventure that totally captured my imagination and my heart. Mila and her siblings have been living in an everlasting winter. After mysterious visitors arrive one evening, Mila’s brother Oskar disappears along with other boys from the village. Convinced that Oskar was taken against his will, and with the guidance of the mage Rune, Mila embarks on a quest to find him. Kiran’s lyrical writing is captivating, and the lush winter scenery gives the book an unmistakable fairy-tale feel.
From the bestselling author of THE GIRL OF INK & STARS comes
a gorgeous wintry folk tale for young and old alike – an exciting
adventure to the frozen north, perfect for fans of Philip Pullman.
