‘He’s always near, yet never in sight.
He came first in a dream and, finding a way in, returned again and again.
Now he doesn’t need to wait for sleep to come.
He’s coming closer to me every day.
Soon I’ll be him and he’ll be me.
And then what will we do? What terrible things will we do?’
THE RUNESTONE SAGA
“What should kids read now that Harry Potter is done? I’d suggest starting close to home with the novels of Vancouver writer Chris Humphreys’ The Runestone Saga.”
– The Vancouver Sun -
FETCH: The apparition, double, or wraith of a living person.
In the attic, in an old sea chest, secreted away, are a mysterious journal and a set of runes: 24 stones that will change Sky’s life forever.
When Sky and his cousin Kristin find their Norwegian grandfather’s runes, Sky feels like the wait is over, like he can now release the breath he wasn’t even aware he’d been holding. But when he lays out the stones in a runecast they find in Sigurd’s journal, he is catapulted into a world filled with more possibilities and more danger than he ever imagined.
This first entry in the Runestone Saga is an utterly unique blend of horror, supernatural possibility, and historical truth that will leave readers wrung out from tension and clamoring for more.
“Who’s there? he asked. Softly, but out loud he was sure. Almost sure.”
