By Katharine Orton

Middle-grade fantasy adventure about a mountain kingdom and a vengeful witch from the bestselling author of Nevertell and Glassheart.

"Orton’s use of language is masterful." Reading Zone Eleven-year-old Erskin and her family are used to danger. As Guardians of their village, they live in the shadow of Mountainfell, a place of wild creatures and dangerous magic. But when the most powerful and dangerous creature of all – the fearsome cloud dragon – snatches Erskin’s sister away, Erskin must face her true fear and journey onto the mountain itself to bring her back. A terrible power is stirring there, and it is up to Erskin to save both her family and her home.
