The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of old magic and rich in atmosphere, Runemarks takes readers into the heart of Norse mythology. Born with a rusty coloured rune on her hand, Maddy Smith has always known that she has the gift of magic. While many pity her for it as it makes her an outsider, she loves the special qualities it gives her. But it has its dangers too. Maddy’s adventures lead her on a fantasy adventure full of magic and trickery into the World Below and the search for the relic of the old gods. Joanne Harris cleverly weaves new life and a feisty contemporary heroine into the familiar strands of old myth and magic.
Runemarks by Joanne Harris
Maddy Smith was born with a rusty-coloured runemark on her hand - a symbol of the old gods and definitely cause for suspicion. For magic is dangerous. Or so everyone thinks. But Maddy enjoys working magic. Even if it is just to control some pesky goblins.
