Product description


'Like Alan Garner, Philip Womack takes ancient fairy-tales about searching for a child kidnapped by dark magic, and turns it into a haunting adventure exploring love, courage, fear and friendship. Written with sensitivity, intelligence and conviction, it's the kind of classic story readers can't get enough of.' Amanda Craig --Amanda Craig

'A cracking pace, enigmatic characters and terrifying adversaries will have you clamouring for the next in the series' --Sarah Naughton
