How far would you go to save a loved one?
In two days Dad will be dead.
To save him, Alice must travel to the northern tip of Sweden, a thousand miles through a dangerous hidden world that she had no idea existed. But bureaucratic trolls and bodybuilding minotaurs are the least of her worries . . .
The mysterious monster that injured Dad could be right behind her. One wrong move might be Alice’s last.
Problem is, Alice isn’t good at being careful. When Mom left, a red hot rage moved into Alice’s chest, ready to boil over at any moment. Will she be able to overcome her anger in order to save Dad’s life?
"This is a fast-moving and thrilling book of extraordinary imagination that creates an alternative mythic universe and at the same time has heart, humor, and profound meaning." – Alan Rinzler, former editor of Hunter S. Thompson and Nobel laureate Toni Morrison.
“This is the best debut novel I’ve read in two years […] I cannot recommend this book highly enough; I was delighted with it from start to finish and am eagerly looking forward to Mr. Persson's next release.” – Amazon reviewer.
