A spine-tingling magical fantasy trilogy from the author of Charlie Bone, Jenny Nimmo.
On his ninth birthday, Gwyn is given a brooch and told to cast it into the wind. Later he discovers the wind has sent something back: the snow spider. So begins Gwyn's journey as a magician. Against the shimmering backdrop of a magical domed city, Gwyn has to battle evil and heal a fractured family.
Combining all of Jenny Nimmo’s trademark elements – unusual but compelling characters, stunning magic and a rich, vibrant story – The Snow Spider Trilogy is perfect for lovers of Jenny Nimmo’s other fantasy books such as Charlie Bone and The Secret Kingdom.
