Maddy can do things that no-one else can, things that could be called
magic. But not until she meets the old traveller One-Eye, an outsider like
herself, does she learn what power she really has, and what she will be
asked to do with it. In "Runemarks", Joanne Harris creates a world not
unlike our own - if it had been shaped by the Vikings instead of the Romans
- and colours it with her familiar blend of rich imagery and gritty
realism. A disenchanted world, where the gods died long ago. Can Maddy
bring them back to life?
