Sky Song

In the snowy kingdom of Erkenwald, whales glide between icebergs, wolves hunt on the tundra and polar bears roam the glaciers. But the people of this land aren’t so easy to find. Because Erkenwald is ruled by a cruel Ice Queen and you must stay hidden or risk becoming another of her prisoners.

Join Eska, a girl who breaks free from a cursed music box, and Flint, a boy whose inventions could change the fate of Erkenwald forever, as they journey together in search of an ancient, almost forgotten, song with the power to force the Ice Queen back.

My Thoughts

My kids tease me that three tests for books I review are:-

1) Do I pass it on to one of them to read?

2) DO I offer it to their friends to read?

3) (And this is the key one!) Do I ask for it back?

Sky Song passed all three tests and introduced a fourth one:-

4) Do I buy myself another copy JUST IN CASE the friend forgets to return it!

I loved this book.  It is beautifully written, the language is enchanting and the world Abi Elphinstone has created for her characters is a bewitching. The plot is great too - a page turning fantasy adventure with fabulous characters and creatures.

This is a story of courage, hope and friendship.

I'm not lending you my copy, but I urge you to get yourself one :-
