Alba and the Land Beyond

Henrik Johansson, Mårten Gisby

Alba lives with her uncle Odd in the little town of Värend. She makes friends with Idun who lives on Björk Farm, and learns from her Aunt Siri about plants and animals, as well as natural medicine, runes and ancient formulae. Then bizarre things start to happen on the farm: the animals behave strangely, a little figure zips around, and in the earth cellar there is a stone with a strange symbol.

When Björk Farm turns out to be a portal to another world, Alba makes up her mind to uncover the truth.

In the Land Beyond, populated by fairies, gnomes and Vikings, a war for power is raging between the Wizard King and the rebelling magic tribes. Alba’s knowledge of rune magic and combat are put to the test as she has to learn to navigate her new surroundings. But who can she really trust?
