Catherine Fisher is the bestselling author of The Oracle Prophecies trilogy and this epic fantasy is another winner. The story was originally published in Britain as three short stories. A mysterious Snow-walker from the edge of the world marries into the throne and rules her new people with fear and evil sorcery. Jarl and his friends must risk everything to defeat Gundrun.
The story pays homage to Beowulf, and Celtic and Norse tales mixing the hero’s journey and a coming of age tale for a band of unlikely heroes.
