Ice, myth, magic and danger in this bone-chilling, page-turning,
beautifully written fantasy novel set in the same world as A SHIVER
OF SNOW AND SKY.
Blood-red lights have appeared in the sky over the frozen island
of Skane, causing a cloak of fear and suspicion to fall over the
village like a blanket of snow. In a desperate attempt to keep out
the plague, the village elders barricade its borders - no-one,
no matter how in need of help, will be permitted to enter in case
they bring infection with them. Teenager Janna refuses to turn her
back on people seeking refuge and is banished to the swirling
snow and lurking darkness beyond the village. Can she survive?
Samantha Shannon, internationally bestselling author of The Bone
Season, says: 'It reads like a long-lost fable, rich with beauty
and imagination. A world you won't forget.'
