A gripping fantasy from one of the masters of this genre, Catherine Fisher.From the Back Cover:
Mist formed over the water; a low swirl of it drfited up. Underneath, far below the surface, a face was watching them. It blurred and moved with the rippling reen, its eyes watched them, green and narrow.
Hafren, the spirit of the reen, has given the fiddler Meurig a frightening choice. Either he must open the flood gates to release torrents of water over miles of countryside, farms and houses or... he must surrender his own life. But, with the help of conor and Sara, perhaps there is a way for Meurig to steal back what is rightfully his. His candle...his soul...his life.
Eerie and atmospheric, here is a gripping take which will hold readers speelbound from the first page.
