The Lovereading4Kids comment
A huge and dramatic, soap opera of a novel full of old world magic and larger than life characters. Maddy knows that she is different from everyone else in her village: she was born with a ‘rune’ – a special mark on her hand. She can do all kinds of magic and she loves it, especially when it means controlling the pesky goblins. But, can she stop The End of Everything? And does she want to? A flamboyant and wholly engrossing story. This is the Joanne Harris's first children's book.
