She Wolf

Book Synopsis

A young Viking girl is swept by a storm on to a desolate English beach. Cruelly orphaned there, Ylva becomes set on revenge, tracking a killer through dangerous hinterland.

She wants only the favour of the Norse gods and the comfort of her stories. But when a stranger decides to protect Ylva – seeming to understand her where others cannot – Ylva must decide if her own legend will end in vengeance or forgiveness …

A startlingly original, emotional and action-packed adventure set in the dark ages.

Our unforgettable main character, Viking girl Ylva, is pulled into an unforgettable adventure as she seeks vengeance – aided by a wolf companion!

Our Review Panel says...

Ylva has been taught to survive; no crying will do and with the Norse Gods on her side, she knows she doesn’t need anyone else to help…
