Born with a gift for magic, denoted by a rusty runemark on her hand, the symbol of the old gods, Maddy Smith loves her special powers even if they do make her an outcast in the village. Here they lead her on a dangerous adventure to the World Below, throwing her into the company of mischievous goblins, monsters and great Norse gods. Almost realistic magic, myth and mayhem make this a hugely enjoyable story for discerning readers with plenty of plot threads to untangle.
