Product description

Review

''The insistent power of the Gothic is on full display here, with the added dimension of the kinds of magic that appeal to contemporary teen readers. The language is challenging in the best sense, echoing the prose of its source text. ... [T]he world is compellingly made and fully immersive, and readers will be as attracted and repulsed by Lina and Damek as they have been for nearly two centuries by Catherine and Heathcliff.'' --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

''Croggon returns with an homage to Wuthering Heights, trading the English moors of the original for the remote northern wilds of Elbasa, a land of powerful wizards and strict rules concerning vendetta . . . In language and pitch, the pastiche is spot on.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Cleaving to the sensibility of the original, this love letter to Wuthering Heights is for fans of genuine Victorian Gothic . . . Brontë devotees will swoon. For those who take their romance tumultuous and doomed.'' --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

ALISON CROGGON writes in many genres, including criticism, theater, and prose. She is also the author of the acclaimed young-adult fantasy quartet, the Books of Pellinor. The first volume, The Gift, was nominated in two categories at the 2002 Aurealis Awards for Excellence in Speculative Fiction and named one of the Notable Books of 2003 by the Children's Book Council of Australia. The US edition, The Naming, was judged a Top Ten Teen Read of 2005 by the editors of Amazon.com. In 2009 she was named Geraldine Pascall Critic of the Year for her theater criticism. She is a prize-winning poet, described by the Australian Book Reviewas ''one of the most powerful lyric poets writing today.''
