A Shiver of Snow and Sky

Ice. Myth. Magic. Danger. When the sky is white, you’re safe. If it turns red, be scared… The sky speaks on the frozen island of Skane. Beautiful lights appear on clear nights, and their colours have meanings. Green means all is well, and the Goddess is happy. Blue heralds a snow storm. And then there’s red. A red alert: rare and frightening. A warning… Seventeen years ago, the sky turned red just as Osa was born. What came next? A plague that claimed hundreds of lives. Now the night sky is bleeding crimson once again. Can Osa find out what it means – before more lives are lost?

  • A brooding, atmospheric fantasy with a unique premise

“It reads like a long-lost fable, rich with beauty and imagination. A world you won’t forget.” Samantha Shannon
