The Cursed Children

Johanna Strömqvist, illustrated by Johan Idesjö

Saga lives with her parents in a forest where there is eternal winter. Dad builds machines in the castle tower rooms and her mother has magical powers. The forest is full of monsters, but they are frozen in ice and can’t hurt anyone. But one day the mother becomes sick, and the monsters are slowly beginning to melt … Together with her friend, the stone monster Ulrik, Saga embarks on a dangerous journey to find a cure for her mother. What she gets to see and experience changes everything, not least what she thought she knew about her own parents – and herself. The world is darker than she ever could have imagined. A fantastic, swarming and scary adventure – a real page-turner! With magically beautiful illustrations by Johan Idesjö.
