      They call it a ruinmark . . .

    Maddy Smith born with a rusty-coloured rune shape on her hand has always been an outsider in her village. For the good folk of Malbry believe a ruinmark to be a symbol of the old gods, a mark of magic.And that, as everyone knows, is the road to Chaos. Dangerous.

    But Maddy enjoys working magic, even if it is just to control some pesky goblins. And every time he visits, her best friend a good-for-nowt Outlander known as One-Eye has been teaching her more and more about the old ways: about gods and glamours, runes and cantrips.

    Now One-Eye is back again, and he wants her to open Red Horse Hill and descend into World Below to retrieve a relic of the old gods.

    Otherwise apparently - it could be the End of Everything. Again . .

    An epic runic romp into the heart of the old Norse tales: wild, dangerous, richlyinventive and superbly imaginative
