About this book
The squabbling Norse gods and goddesses of "Runemarks" are back, and there's a feisty new heroine on the scene, Maggie, twin sister to Maddy but brought up a world apart. With a chilling prophecy from the Oracle, a conflict between sisters and just 9 days to stave off the Apocalypse, carnage is about to be unleashed. A tremendous adventure for all fantasy fans, from the author still perhaps best known for "Chocolat".
Maggie is 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.
