About this book
Winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel, and the 2011 Nebula Award for Best Novel, this is a startling and unusual work. It is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and the spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.
Fifteen-year-old Morwenna lives in Wales with her twin sister and a mother who spins dark magic for ill. One day, Mori and her mother fight a powerful, magical battle that kills her sister and leaves Mori crippled. Devastated, Mori flees to her long-lost father in England.
