The Stones of Winter by Oskar Jensen

The first novel from Oskar Jensen is a thrilling tale of adventure, witches, wolves and spookiness. Astrid and Leif are a brilliant pairing. Astrid is wild and adventurous while Leif is more thoughtful and cautious. The two friends need all of their skills to face the threat of the new religion which Bishop Folkmar is trying to force on them. Our young heroes know that magic is real and very much alive and that the stones are an important part of that magic. Set in Denmark in the tenth century and using some real historical characters as an inspiration Jensen has written an exciting, well crafted and enthralling story suitable for readers of nine upwards. Available now from Piccadilly Press.
