A Far Away Magic

Written by Amy Wilson

A Far Away Magic Synopsis

When Angel moves to a new school after the death of her parents, she isn't interested in making friends. Until she meets Bavar - a strange boy, tall, awkward and desperate to remain unseen, but who seems to have a kind of magic about him. Everyone and everything within Bavar's enchanted house is urging him to step up and protect the world from a magical rift through which monsters are travelling, the same monsters that killed Angel's parents. But Bavar doesn't want to follow the path that's been chosen for him - he wants to be normal; to disappear. Fighting one another as well as their fears, Angel and Bavar must find a way to repair the rift between the worlds, and themselves, before it's too late . . . Praise for A Girl Called Owl 'A story of wild winds and bitter frosts with the warmth of friendship at its heart' - Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher 'This debut is a sparklingly frosty read, full of feisty characters, myth and mystery' - Daily Mail 'A winter treat full of frosty magic' - Katherine Woodfine, author of The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow 'A perfect read for those who love wintery magic and a strong female character proving her place in the world.'
