The Eye of the North

A rip-roaring middle grade adventure set in the far reaches of the Icy North.

When Emmeline gets up one morning, her parents are gone. All that they’ve left is a letter telling her to flee to a safehouse in Paris. Emmeline doesn’t delay (her parents are sensible types, after all) but before she gets far, she’s tumbled into an adventure that will change her life.  Kidnapped by an evil maniac, with designs on controlling the world by controlling the polar ice-caps, Emmeline must escape.  But danger lurks everywhere – from the North Witch who has vowed to protect her icy kingdoms, from the people who say they are there to help.  The only person she can trust is the fearless, unpredictable Thing, a strange boy she has met en route.  But how can two orphans save the world?
