Author(s): Joanne Harris
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.
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 . . .
The humour, spark and magic of Discworld's Tiffany Aching meets the action-packed adventure of Percy Jackson in a page-turning fantasy blockbuster, from the bestselling writer of Chocolat and The Lollipop Shoes.
Joanne Harris is the author of the Whitbread-shortlisted Chocolat (made into a major film starring Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche), Five Quarters of the Orange, The Lollipop Shoes and Blue-Eyed Boy, amongst others. She lives in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, with her husband and daughter.
