Description

The squabbling Norse gods and goddesses of Runemarks are back! And there's a feisty new heroine on the scene: Maggie, a girl 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. This is a chilling prophecy from the Oracle; a conflict between two girls; and with just twelve days to stave off the Apocalypse, carnage is about to be unleashed...show more

Review quote

"The author is one of my favourites ... The author's wonderful imagination is showcased to great effect" -- Natasha Harding The Sun "It's a beautiful piece of writing ... Add to this the introduction of a new character who's just as tough as the original which when backed with cracking prose and wonderful pace alongside classically complex world building and it's a title that was really hard to put down for sleep at the end of the night" Tatty's Treasure Chest "Enjoyable, funny and dramatic" Retford Times "Colourful and entertaining with a good eye for the chaos" -- Jennifer Howell SFcrowsnest.comshow more

About Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris is one of our best-loved and most versatile novelists. She first appeared on the scene with the bestselling Chocolat (made into an Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp), which turned into the sensuous Lansquenet trilogy (with Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Cure). She has since written acclaimed novels in such diverse genres as fantasy based on Norse myth (Runemarks, Runelight, The Gospel of Loki), and the Malbry cycle of dark psychological thrillers (Gentlemen & Players, Blueeyedboy, and now Different Class). Born in Barnsley, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before (somewhat reluctantly) becoming a full-time writer. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE. She lives in Yorkshire, plays bass in a band first formed when she was sixteen, works in a shed in her garden, spends far too much time online and occasionally dreams of faking her own death and going to live in Hawaii.show more
