Funny, exhilarating and a little bit scary; a bewitching blend of Norse mythology and urban fantasy.
Since moving to Australia with their father, Angus Jack and his sister, Martha, have moved house constantly. They end up living next door to a peculiar old lady called Reafen, who is a second-hand dealer. To Angus and Martha, Reafen seems harmless enough. But who is she really and where did she get all the weird stuff in her shop?
Without his knowledge, Reafen draws Angus into her world; into ancient feuds, Wild Magick and bitter rivalries - into the secret dealings of Vikings and goblins and all those who have lived in the Old Realm.
Funny, exhilarating and a little bit scary; a bewitching blend of Norse mythology and urban fantasy from the award-winning author of Tensy Farlow and The Home for Mislaid Children.
