Headstrong heroine, Mila, must journey into the underworld to face and outwit the cunning and terrible troll king, Malrook, master of Death. Can Mila make it through the deadly, dragon-infested caves and answer the troll's impossible riddle in order to win the Evertrue emerald and so save her parents from certain death? As time runs out Mila discovers that friendship and ingenuity can unearth the greatest strength of all and win her heart's desire. Evertrue is a fairy-tale twist on the story of Orpheus. It will be enjoyed by readers of fantasy, young and old, and will appeal to fans of Philip Pullman and Cornelia Funke.
