"This is fantasy at its best." Daily Telegraph

"A tale that sparkles with frosty magic." Thomas Taylor

A gorgeous, snowy adventure, set in the wilds of Siberia, full of magic and wonder, for junior readers.

A world of magic is only a whisper away... Born in a Soviet prison camp, Lina has never seen the world outside until the night she escapes with her best friend, Bogdan. As the pair journey across a snowy wilderness, they are pursued by a vengeful sorceress and her pack of shadow wolves. The children will need every ounce of courage - and a whisper of magic - if they are to survive...

Perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone, Sophie Anderson and Catherine Doyle.

Praise for Nevertell :

Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award

"A coming-of-age tale that's compelling, exciting and as chilling as the snow-bound landscape in which it is set." Financial Times

"Readers will be captivated ... A magical, snowy adventure perfect for winter nights." BookTrust

"Featuring themes of bravery, friendship, sorcery and survival, this beautifully written story is ideal for fans of magical adventure tales." The Week Junior

"Orton's use of language is masterful and her vivid descriptions bring the journey to life ... Perfect to snuggle up with on a winter's afternoon." ReadingZone

"It's an unusual juxtaposition - the harsh world of political prisoners in a forced labour camp versus one of ice castles, spirit children and giant eagles. Katharine Orton pulls it off brilliantly ." The Bookseller
