The Snow-Walker’s Son, The Empty Hand and The Soul Thieves
THE SNOW WALKER’S SON is a book of intrigue; of banishment and sorcery; of an ice cold winter and an unseen evil eye. Jessa and Thorkil are banished by the evil witch Gudrun to the ice kingdom to the North. Here they will be incarcerated with Gudrun’s son Kari; about whom there are the most terrible tales. He is rumoured to be half-man, half-beast and is a figure of dread. After an endless journey, Thorkil and Jessa arrive and, at last meet Kari. He is not as they feared but is a slight winsome young man. His only terror is that he, too, has the power. But he is determined to use the magic wisely.
THE EMPTY HAND – A creature moves down out of the uttermost North. It’s a sending summoned by Gudrun to cause destruction in the kingdom of Wulfgar, and as it travels down towards the Jarlshold it leaves a trail of devastation in its wake. Kari Ragnarrson tells his friends of old that he knows why the creature is coming: it has been sent by Gudrun as a test for him, a test of the powers which he has inherited from her. Ultimately, Kari must come to terms with the full strength of his powers in order to win his struggle and defeat the curse of Gudrun. It is a battle of the spirit which Kari knows he must win.
THE SOUL THIEVES – When the evil Snow-Walker Gudrun steals Signi’s soul on the eve of her wedding, Kari knows it is his mother’s sign to take up her final, most dreadful confrontation – from which only one of them can emerge alive. Together with his stalwart friends, Jessa, Brochael, Skapti and Hakon he sets off to challenge Gudrun in her own land, beyond the rainbow bridge. It’s a journey few before have dared attempt -and from which none have returned. . .
