Format: Paperback
This is a great book, with some absolutely amazing imagery. I remember reading it many years ago when I was a lot younger and I managed to find my old copy of it (and I ordered a new one of course) and read it recently. The book is a magical tale of a new father, Malyuta, who is visited by a shaman kuzma who can adopt the form of a bear and demands his son Ambrosi.
It is a great book that tells an amazing tale with some great imagery. Susan Price has done a great job with this book and I recommend it to keen readers young and old.

I agree with the above review. The three Ghost World books are masterpieces - set in a magical 'Russian Fairytale' world, they appeal to anyone, of whatever age, who loves vivid imagery and myth.

The Ghost World sequence is not only a classic series, but it's utterly unlike any other I've read. It's dark, yes, and many elements of all three books are not for the fainthearted. But then, there are a lot of readers both young and old who wouldn't consider themselves faint of heart. If you've got the guts to pass through the Ghost World Gate and discover a truly unique work of imagination - and go places you'd never even dreamed could exist - then this is for you.

Ghost Song in particular has one of the best villains in children's fiction - an utterly despicable and yet strangely magnetic, fascinating character in the form of Kuzma. Here you find out something about why he was so bitter in twisted in 'The Ghost Drum', to which this is a prequel of sorts. But really, he was always bad to the bone...

Don't miss out on this.

Ghost Song is set in the harsh and masculine world of the Northern hunters. Malyuta spents his winters far from his home village trapping wild creatures for the Czar. One fateful day he kills a sable and skins it without performing the due ceremonies to send it respectfully on its journey down the ghost road. Ignorance is no defence and Malyuta's failure tells against his forthcoming child. Yet this is not a grim tale of helplessness against fate. It is an exploration of how far stubborn human decency can go in resisting the unknown superhuman forces. The writing is ice-cold, glitering and brilliant. These books are deceptively simple, yet unique.
