About the book


The squabbling Norse gods and goddesses of Runemarks are back! And there's a feisty new heroine on the scene: Maggie, a girl the same age as Maddy but brought up a world apart - literally, in World's End, the focus of the Order in which Maddy was raised. Now the Order is destroyed, Chaos is filling the vacuum left behind... and is breaching the everyday world.

A chilling prophecy from the Oracle. A conflict between two girls. And with just twelve days to stave off the Apocalypse, carnage is about to be unleashed . . .

What the critics say

The author is one of my favourites . . . The author's wonderful imagination is showcased to great effect
- The Sun

It's a beautiful piece of writing . . . Add to this the introduction of a new character who's just as tough as the original which when backed with cracking prose and wonderful pace alongside classically complex world building and it's a title that was really hard to put down for sleep at the end of the night
- Tatty's Treasure Chest

Enjoyable, funny and dramatic
- Retford Times

Colourful and entertaining with a good eye for the chaos
