Runelight (Runes Novels) (English Edition)
The squabbling Norse gods and goddesses of Runemarksare back! And there's a feisty new heroine on the scene: Maggie, a girl the same age as Maddy but brought up a world apart - literally, in World's End, the focus of the Order in which Maddy was raised. Now the Order is destroyed, Chaos is filling the vacuum left behind... and is breaching the everyday world.
Six hundred miles apart, two girls each bear on their skin a runemark: a symbol of the Old Days when the known Worlds were ruled by the gods from their sky citadel, Asgard.
Now Asgard lies in ruins, and the power of the gods has long since been destroyed.
Or so everyone thinks.
But nothing is lost for ever, and the gods haven't given up yet (nor stopped squabbling!) and they want the power of the runes borne by Maddy and Maggie - these newrunes, which carry huge potential, their runelight shining out as a portent to the future.
