Joanne Harris Runemarks

Joanne Harris, the bestselling author whose adult books include Chocolat and Five Quarters of the Orange, reads from and discusses her new novel for young readers Runemarks. Seven o’clock on a Monday morning, five hundred years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar, again. Not that anyone would admit it was goblins. In Maddy Smith’s world, order rules. Chaos, old gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours-all of these were supposedly vanquished centuries ago. But Maddy knows that a small bit of magic has survived, and in this epic romp she’ll need every scrap of forbidden magic if she is to survive her destiny.

($18.99) Random House ISBN #978-0-375-84444-7. You can visit Joanne Harris’ official web site as well.

    I was so *riveted* by the author’s reading on this podcast and the book’s premise that I intend to buy a copy tomorrow at lunch. Can’t wait! I’m a long-time YA reader myself (although I’d have to use something other than base-10 numbers to jam my 46 years into a “young” anything category). :o)

    Hi!
    I LOVE your book, Runemarks! It’s all I ever talk about! Loki is SOOOOO my favorite character!!! Can you make a sequel? If there already is one, then can you tell me what it is? I’m desperate!

    #1 Fan,
    Marwa

    PS, my nickname’s Loki!

  1. […] Just finished Runemarks, a marvelous YA novel by Joanne Harris. Next up: Mississippi Sissy by Kevin Sessums, Specials by Scott Westerfeld, and then probably something non-fiction. I’m also looking for a more serious read to put in the lineup but don’t have anything literary that’s grabbed my attention lately. You can probably tell that I’m a *very* eclectic reader. :o) […]
