The Storm Beneath a Midnight Sun Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Returning to the world of Shadows of the Short Days, it's time to go beyond Reykjavik to Hrimland's remote islands . . . CHANGE DOES NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN FOR THE BETTER. War on the mainland is draining Reykjavik. For some, the remote islands off Hrimland's coast are their only hope of survival. Elka, a recovering addict, has fled there with her son Soelvi.

In their village they find a new life - all thanks to the Deep, a peculiar power their neighbours praise for the booming fishing industry.

Everything seems perfect, but Soelvi does not trust the people who take his mother in. Kari is a professor of sorcery, recruited for a career-making venture - an excavation of an ancient power.

He must go deep into the magical wasteland, find what is buried there, and turn the tide of the war forever.

But the world might not be ready for the storm he will unearth . . . * * * * * * * * * *'A marvellous, quirky, original fantasy' Joanne Harris, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Strawberry Thief on Shadows of the Short Days'One of the most ambitious, intense, original and thrilling debuts I've read in a long time' Grimdark Magazine on Shadows of the Short Days'Fresh and exciting: full of dark, demonic, revolutionary shenanigans' Peter Newman, author of The Vagrant on Shadows of the Short Days
