Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018
Amy’s Fave:

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.

‘This gorgeous story of bravery, sisterhood,
goodbyes and beginnings is a must for everyone.’ JESSIE

‘The Way Past Winter is a masterclass in exquisite
storytelling.’ CATHERINE DOYLE

heartfelt and incredibly exciting. Her best yet, and that’s
saying something.’ ROBIN STEVENS

Mila and her
sisters live with their brother Oskar in a small forest cabin in
the snow. One night, a fur-clad stranger arrives seeking shelter
for himself and his men. But by the next morning, they’ve gone –
taking Oskar with them. Fearful for his safety, Mila and her sisters
set out to bring Oskar back – even it means going north, crossing
frozen wild-lands to find a way past an eternal winter.
