ABOUT THIS BOOK

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.


From the Hardcover edition.

QUOTES

"Humphreys commands a fantastically dark tone. [The Fetch] ambitiously—and successfully—combines a runic puzzle with horror, fantasy, betrayal, and gripping historical fiction."—The Horn Book Magazine
