Ice, myth, magic and danger in this bone-chilling, page-turning, beautifully written fantasy novel set in the same world as A Shiver of Snow and Sky.
Blood-red lights have appeared in the sky over the frozen island of Skane, causing a cloak of fear and suspicion to fall over the village like a blanket of snow. In a desperate attempt to keep out the plague, the village elders barricade its borders - no-one, no matter how in need of help, will be permitted to enter in case they bring infection with them. Teenager Janna refuses to turn her back on people seeking refuge and is banished to the swirling snow and lurking darkness beyond the village. Can she survive?
“It reads like a long-lost fable, rich with beauty and imagination. A world you won't forget.” SAMANTHA SHANNON, author of The Bone Season
