ALba and the Night Raven’s Grave

Mårten Gisby, Henrik Johansson

Featuring a strong female protagonist, this is the new epic fantasy trilogy with elements of Norse mythology and Viking history for 9–12-year-olds.

In this nail-biting second installment of The Land Beyond series, the reader is guided through the darkest wooded ramparts and snow-covered battlefields, to magical geysers in pursuit of the Night Raven’s Grave. The Night Raven’s Grave might be Alba’s only hope in bringing back the Brísingamen necklace that was stolen from her by the Thundermaker. With the powerful necklace in his possession and the troublesome troll by his side, her uncle has become an even greater threat to Ossian, Alba’s father and the peacemaker of the country.

Alba swears that she will put everything to rights again but at the same time she feels like a pawn in a game that she does not understand. Alba is pushed to her limits and needs to play her cards right – but will she be able to tell friend from foe?

Stirring up strong emotions as Alba fights for justice in a fascinating world of heroism, Alba and the Night Raven’s Grave is a fast-paced page-turner written in the spirit of J.K. Rowling.
