Synopsis

The Fire Eternal by Chris d'Lacey

Five years have passed since David Rain, now a cult author, disappeared mysteriously in the Arctic. Life in Wayward Crescent has settled to relative normality. But as the weather grows wild and the ice caps melt, all eyes turn north, where bears and the souls of the Inuit dead are combining to produce a spectacular solution...A solution with its focus on David's child, Alexa - if the agents of evil don't reach her first.

Reviews

The writing is impressive. D'Lacey has created a vast world in both time and space which encompasses dragons, polar bears, magic, a malevolent alien life form and a stroppy teenager * Write Away * An energetic book, perfect for teens with a passion for reading and quests * Birmingham Sunday Mercury * This gripping story, which has magic, mystery and charm * Leicester Mercury *
