Runelight Summary

Runelight by 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 ...

Runelight Reviews

"A second book by the Chocolat author in a series for young adults that reinterpre and adapt Norse mythology... but this time [Maddy] has some unexpected allies. 4*" -- Natalie Bowen Nottingham Evening Post 20111118 "Runelight is enjoyable, funny and dramatic. (8/10)" Liverpool Daily Post 20111118 "Imagine if civilisation as we know had been shaped wholly by the Vikings that invaded our shores more than a millennium ago. Welcome to the world of Joanne Harris's Runelight." Liverpool Echo 20111107 "Runelight is the second in a series of books for young adults that reinterpret and adapt Norse mythology. [...] Despite the death of her friend Odin, Maddy must once again fight the forces of Chaos as her old enemies seek to use her unknown sister to regain strength." Bristol Evening Post 20111119 "Runelight is enjoyable, funny and dramatic, but sadly over-long. 4/5" Hull Daily Mail 20111119
