Publisher's Summary

Seven o'clock on a Monday morning, 500 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. The "ruinmark" she was born with on her palm proves it - and makes the other villagers fearful that she is a witch (though helpful in dealing with the goblins-in-the-cellar problem). But the mysterious traveler One-Eye sees Maddy's mark not as a defect, but as a destiny. And Maddy will need every scrap of forbidden magic One-Eye can teach her if she is to survive that destiny.

Beautifully Narrated

Any additional comments?

What lisp! indeed. There is no lisping and no mispronunciation in this narration. She reads the book beautifully and i like her so well that I plan to look for other books she has narrated. As for her Irish accent, I looked her up on Google and her accent is just as it should be for a native Dubliner - Irish. <br/><br/>Not yet finished the book but so far I love it and it only makes me want to hear more. Love Joanne Harris!

classic

Amazing, Runemarks has been a bedtime favourite for my children and I for years. This recording has brought our love for this tale to a whole other level.
