Set in the snowy northern forests of an imagined prehistoric world, Fireborn is a breathtaking debut: at turns exciting, funny and heart-wrenchingly sad. It marks the introduction of an unstoppable new voice in children’s storytelling. Twelve has spoken the Pledge and now she is a Huntling. She has given up her name to train in the art of fighting monsters and keeping the peace, and she won’t get to choose a new one until she has earned it. But when the Lodge’s walls are breached for the first time, and a little girl is taken, Twelve is the only one interested in going after a child. . . and ends up on a quest that will change her life, her name – and her entire world.
