Runemarks | [Joanne Harris]

Runemarks

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.

Publisher's Summary

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-naught 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.

This is an epic journey into the heart of the old Norse tales - wild, dangerous, richly inventive and superbly imaginative.

    "Not her best"

    I usually enjoy this author's work very much but this one is not her usual style and not as enjoyable. The reader is okay.

    "Nordic Magick"

    Another young readers book I imagine, but still enjoyable for me to escape from the crazy busy world of franchising. Interesting mix of characters and colorful sceneries played out.

    "Unabridged required"

    This is a really good book, I've read the book as well as listened to the audio book, and felt it was a little bit ruined by not being unabridged. It was slightly dissapointing, however it is still a great, imaginative piece to listen to - even if it is missing a few minor bits here and there.
