About the book

From bestselling, award-winning author Kiran Millwood Hargrave comes an epic new fantasy about the magic of nature, the lure of power and the strength of love.

'A stunning adventure - masterly storytelling from Kiran Millwood Hargrave' Cressida Cowell
'The Wolf Queen herself is majestically ambiguous, sometimes magnetic and inspiring, sometimes chilling. And every adventure is better with giant sea wolves' Frances Hardinge

In the lakes, the wolf queen sharpens her spear.
In the mountains, an ancient girl opens an eye.
In the forest, an orphan is summoned by the trees.

Our story has begun ...

Ysolda has lived her life in the shadow of the wolf queen's tyrannical rule but, safe in her forest haven, she has never truly felt its threat.

Until one day when a mysterious earthquake shakes the land and her older sister Hari vanishes in its wake.

Accompanied by her loyal sea hawk, Nara, Ysolda embarks on a desperate rescue mission. But when she is forced to strike a bargain with the wolf queen herself, she soon finds herself embroiled in a quest for a magic more powerful - and more dangerous - than she could ever have imagined ...

This is the first in the Geomancer trilogy, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Julia and the Shark, The Mercies and The Girl of Ink and Stars.
