Runelight, Harris, Joanne
1 Harris, JoanneRunelight
London Doubleday/Random House Children's Books 2011 085753081X / 9780857530813 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Fine 9.5" Tall 
Blue binding with silver spine titling; blue endpapers. 572 pages. 2 black & white maps. Book is clean, straight, interior pages unmarked. The boards each have a corresponding small dent injury to the front edge near the top and also ever so slightly to the top corners. Please see bookseller photos. Dust jacket is bright, crisp, with very incidental crinkling at heel of spine. Now protected in a clear archival cover. ~~ After a three-year wait, this is the follow-up to "Runemarks" (2009), and thus the second title in a "gloriously imaginative and dramatic tale about the Norse gods." Harris ("Chocolat," Blackberry Wine," "Holy Fools") has indicated that she plans to continue the series. ~ Four years have gone by since Ragnarok (the End of the Worlds), and Maddy, a young girl born with a 'ruinmark' on her hand, is now seventeen. The Order has been destroyed, lawlessness is rife, and creatures of the Netherworld are being released in the World Above. Maddy and the surviving gods are faced with the challenge of rebuilding Asgard and confronting the enemy. ~ When "Runemarks" appeared, Harris was hailed for her convincing portrayals of the various gods, such as the irreverent Loki, and for the complex fantasy tinged with a comedic element. "Runelight" continues that formula and has also been praised. Though written for youth, these books will also be enjoyed by adults. Not yet published in the U.S.

New York Alfred A. Knopf 2008 0375844449 / 9780375844447 First American Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo - 9.25" Tall Signed by Author
First published in the UK by Doubleday in 2007. This copy is the first American edition. White binding with metallic red illustrations on spine. 526 pages. Includes three b&w illustrations/maps of the worlds; List of Characters; and List of "Runes of the Elder Script." ~Book is clean, tight, unread. Dust jacket is fine, clean, bright, as new. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ From the bestselling author of "Chocolat," this is Harris's first novel geared towards teens as well as adults. The first title in a fantasy trilogy, it is set in a newly rebuilt world hundreds of years after Ragnarok (the end of the world in Old Norse legend), where there is a new religion called The Order, in which gods are not revered and magic is taboo. Fourteen-year-old Maddy has a 'ruinmark' on her hand and has some special skills that she keeps secret. Her friend One-Eye, an Outlander, knows the truth, and encourages her to learn more about her parentage and her powers, and to fight in the war between the old and the new. "Harris creates a glorious and complex world replete with rune-based magical spells, bickering gods, exciting adventures and difficult moral issues." --Publishers Weekly, starred review. ~The second title in the trilogy is titled Runelight (2011); the third title has yet to be published. ~~ This copy is signed by Harris on the title page. A beautiful copy.
