Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she''ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she''s there.

What Ellie doesn''t anticipate is Graham''s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect that something powerful and ancient will awaken in her and that strange whispers will urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, suddenly there''s a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it''s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring, Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them.

Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl''s unexpectedly epic coming-of-age.

Editorial Reviews

Readers who like a strong, talented heroine who can save the day but still lose her heart to a roguish equal, in the spirit of Cashore’s Graceling and Melling’s The Chronicles of Faerie, will find much to enjoy in this complex, clever fantasy.
