Runemarks

Joanne Harris


Seven o’clock on a Monday morning, years after the tip of the area, and goblins were on the cellar back. . . . now not that anybody might admit it used to be goblins. In Maddy Smith’s international, order ideas. Chaos, previous gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours–all of those have been supposedly vanquished centuries in the past. yet Maddy understands small little bit of magic has survived. The “ruinmark” she used to be born with on her palm proves it–and makes the opposite villagers anxious that she is a witch (though valuable in facing the goblins-in-the-cellar problem). however the mysterious traveller One-Eye sees Maddy’s mark no longer as a illness, yet as a future. And Maddy will desire each scrap of forbidden magic One-Eye can educate her if she is to outlive that future.
