Product Details


Praise for Thornghost

“Almhjell unspools this cryptic mystery with enormous skill.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A companion novel to The Twistrose Key, this entry introduces Lin’s friend Niklas Summerhill, a mischievous resident of mountainous Willodale….Almhjell combines an imaginative setting with a modified animal fantasy that feels fresh and intriguing. The setting is equally creative, with leisurely, detailed descriptions. ” —School Library Journal

Rave reviews for The Twistrose Key

Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year

“This jewel of a story will capture your heart and your imagination…Readers should take their time and read with care to fully grasp and decipher the fresh mythology of the land of Sylver. It’ll leave you gasping, laughing, and maybe shedding a tear or two.” —The New York Journal of Books

“Beguiling.” —New York Times Book Review

*“This debut novel will captivate readers…Fantasy that evokes the classics of yore and stands proudly among them.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“This debut novel has Narnian charm and troll-fire high adventure. I’ve never read anything quite like it, and I hope Tone Almhjell writes many more books for me to fall in love with.” —Erin Bow, author of Plain Kate

“Children entranced by animal tales and in love with snowy fantasy lands will delight in Lin’s magical journey and triumphant determination.” —Booklist
“Her story feels complete even as the world of Sylver contains enough unexplored territory to invite subsequent volumes.” —Publishers Weekly
