"The author is one of my favourites...The author's wonderful imagination is showcased to great effect." ( The Sun)
"Harris has tweaked our world to provide the basis of hers, but given it a complex and attractive back story, mixing up all sorts of Norse myths with a well imagined scheme of her own." ( Telegraph)
"Imagine if civilisation as we know had been shaped wholly by the Vikings that invaded our shores more than a millennium ago. Welcome to the world of Joanne Harris's Runelight." ( Liverpool Echo)
"A writer of tremendous charm" ( Times)
"Runelight is enjoyable, funny and dramatic. (8/10)" ( Liverpool Daily Post)
Five past midnight, three years after the End of the World, and, as usual, there was nothing to be seen or heard in the catacombs – except, of course , for the rats and (if you believed in them) the ghosts of the dead.
Runelight is set in a world coming back to life, but it is also a world in conflict. For Maddy, born with the mark of magic on her hand, the return of the old gods and the overthrow of the brutal Order who suppressed them is a time of excitement. But for Maggie, raised as part of the Order, it is a time of chaos and desolation, as her family and values are wiped out.
Like the two girls, the new world remains divided – the old regime has gone but with nothing to take its place, anarchy is beginning to spread…
Joanne Harris draws us back into the richly imagined world first introduced in Runemarks -a world not unlike our own, had it been shaped by the Vikings instead of the Romans. But if its inhabitants, including Maddy and Maggie, can’t solve their differences soon, they will destroy their world altogether.
