Teaser Tuesday #24 - Runemarks by Joan Harris

Joan Harris' fantasy debut Runemarks surprised me with its depth of Norse mythology references, and its brave, young and immensely likable heroine Maddy.
She turned to glare at Maddy, her fierce little teeth bared like a ferret's. "You open this door right now", she said.
You really, really, don't want me to."
I just finished this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fanciful stroll through characters like Odin, Loki and the Norse Underworld tale.
Pin It!
