LoveReading Expert Review of Runemarks

Appeared on “Hay-on-Sky” 30 May. A huge and dramatic, soap opera of a novel full of old world magic and larger than life characters. Maddy knows that she is different from everyone else in her village: she was born with a ‘rune’ – a special mark on her hand. She can do all kinds of magic and she loves it, especially when it means controlling the pesky goblins. But, can she stop The End of Everything? And does she want to? A flamboyant and wholly engrossing story. This is the Joanne Harris's first children's book.


Runemarks Synopsis

On a Monday morning, 500 years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar again. Maddy Smith was born with a mark on her hand - a symbol of the old gods. Maddy enjoys working magic. Even if it is just to control goblins. Now Maddy needs to open Red Horse Hill and descend into World Below to retrieve a relic of the old gods.

Fellow novelist ANNE BERRY on JOANNE HARRIS I have thoroughly enjoyed all Joanne Harris’s books but Gentlemen and Players I quite simply adored. I loved the character Roy Straightley, an aging Classic’s teacher with a dicky heart, clinging tenaciously to honest old values, his delightfully ironic sense ...
