Product description

In the bitter cold of winter, Tomas and his son, Peter, come to a small Eastern European village and settle there as woodcutters. But Tomas is a man with a past; a past that is tracking him with deadly intent. When a flamboyant band of gypsies arrives, Peter is quickly infatuated by the beautiful gypsy princess, Sofia. But meanwhile, the dead don’t seem to be staying in their graves. And as surely as the snow falls in the forest of a hundred thousand silver birch trees, father and son must face a soulless enemy and a terrifying destiny…

Drenched in an atmosphere of creeping terror, and inspired by the dark forests and vampire folklore of Eastern Europe, My Swordhand is Singing won the Booktrust Teenage Prize 2007.

“Breathes new life into the tale of the living dead.” Booktrust

“A finely written, bone-chilling gothic tale… the myriad horrors of the deep woods will transfix readers.” Publishing News
