Book description
The werlings' shape-changing ability has always kept them safe, but never before have they faced such evil. Deep in the ancient forest of Hagwood, the dark forces of magic are gathering, and the High Lady of Hollow Hill is on the prowl. This breathtakingly beautiful--and ruthlessly evil--queen is looking for the thief who has stolen her most prized possession. Her search has led her and her nightmarish thorn ogres right to the werlings. What will save them now? This first tale in an exciting new series from acclaimed fantasy author Robin Jarvis is riveting from the very first word. Black-and-white illustrations Jacket illustration by Tim Jessell.
