A magical wintry story filled with adventure, wonder and edge-of-your-seat excitement, this is the perfect read for fans of Michelle Harrison, Piers Torday and Emma Carroll. ‘Once an adventure digs its claws in, there is not an awful lot you can do about it. Especially when magic is involved . . .’   In the snowy kingdom of Erkenwald, whales glide between icebergs, wolves hunt on the tundra and polar bears roam the glaciers. But the people of this land aren’t so easy to find - because Erkenwald is ruled by an evil Ice Queen and the tribes must stay hidden or risk becoming her prisoners at Winterfang Palace. Join Eska, a girl who breaks free from a cursed music box, and Flint, a boy whose inventions could change the fate of Erkenwald forever, as they journey to the Never Cliffs and beyond in search of an ancient, almost forgotten, song with the power to force the Ice Queen back.   This is a story about an eagle huntress, an inventor and an organ made of icicles. But it is also a story about belonging, even at the very edges of our world . . . 'A shimmering thrill-ride of a book. I loved every page.' Lauren St John, author of The White Giraffe  'Sky Song made my heart sing - I loved it!' Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars 'A dazzling snowstorm of an adventure, with hope at its heart' Emma Carroll, author of Letters from the Lighthouse ‘I cannot recommend highly enough… a brilliant, heart-stopping, tear-inducing, soul-soaring adventure’ MG Leonard, author of Beetle Boy ‘A truly magical tale’ The Guardian ‘Abi Elphinstone is proving to be a worthy successor to CS Lewis’ The Times 'Abi Elphinstone’s books are full of adventure, wit, heart, and, above all, bravery’ Katherine Rundell, author of The Explorer ​

I enjoyed this book, especially the storyline. The characters were all good, my favourite was Flint because he never gave up.

Hi, I thought this book was the most boring book I have ever picked up. I would never recommend this book!

Director Diamond Menace 22.11.2022


Its very good adventure fantasy story I'd definitely recommend it

Judge Harmonica Pendragon 30.08.2022


At first, the book was a bit boring, because they were just describing, but when I read the rest it was so grasping! It is about a vain queen who captures the people of Erkenwald's voices, Eska could be next but she perseveres and is off the list

It is about a girl who has lost her family, voice and memories because of an evil queen (One evil Sky God). Can this girl stop the queen.

I think this book was cool and I liked it. It was magnificent! The person I liked most was flint because he makes smart inventions and he is also very smart. This wasn't a factual book. Yes, I would recommend this book to someone else.
