This second book in the best-selling 'Viking Magic' series combines adventure, magic and authentic historical detail to deliver a riveting junior fantasy in which the young heroes, Oddo and Thora, join forces and make a dangerous journey to foil a greedy neighbour and save their own families from eviction.
In the world of Viking Magic a girl can heal sword cuts with nettle stings, a boy can weave a wolfspell or make the lightning strike, an arrow of fire can end a dispute. But can two children stop the Sheriff from turning their families out of their homes?
Oddo the farmer's son and Thora the spellworker's daughter are determined to stop the Sheriff. They set off to the Gula Thing to ask for help, never suspecting what dangers they're about to face. They will have to fight their way through raging rivers, wild wolves and treacherous swamps before they can return. And even then, it looks as though they may arrive too late . . .
Courage, friendship and a dash of magic are the keys to this spellbinding adventure, the second in the acclaimed 'Viking Magic' series. Like the first book, 'Runestone', it is ideal for readers who enjoy a strong story and a richly imagined world. Grimm the Greedy is equally determined that Oddo will not even make it back to the farm . . .
