The Way Past Winter


Deep in the forest, past the heart tree, Mila lives with her sisters and brother. Papa left some years ago, and the children have fended for themselves. Mila is wary of the stranger seeking permission to start a fire and stay the night. Her temples pulse in pain and warning.

What’s more, when her brother disappears, she is certain the stranger has captured him. It sets in motion Mila’s  dangerous chase to the North, to The Way Past Winter, trusting magic, instinct and legend.

The Way Past Winter

Kiran Millwood Hargrave

(Chicken House)

Mila breaks the word of the jarl in following her dreams and the words in her head. Rune tells her to listen, that she is capable of magic. Mila knows her brother Oskar has not left his sisters, but has been seized. She does not trust the visitor who intruded on them, asking for food, fire and shelter. There is something about his eyes, his bearing, his questions, and the sinuous gold cord about his person. What does it all mean? What’s more, is she the only one who sees his threat?
Thereafter, Mila determines to join Rune and travel to The Way Past Winter, fighting wise women’s words, wolves and the stranger’s knowledge of her. It is a daring, dangerous, unknown trek, but Mila fears she has no other choice. After all, if she does not face these dangers, who can possibly rescue Oskar? What’s more, she knows there are hidden, dangerous truths in his ultimate destination….
This is an ice-gripping masterclass in storytelling. The Way Past Winter is a truly spine chilling, wondrous story of magic, legend, long ago and wonder. What’s more, it’s a further triumph for award-winning writer Kiran Millwood Hargrave, creator of Julia and the Shark
