Welcome to the worldwide re-release of the Northern Frights series!
All three terrifying novels have been compiled into one bone-shaking book. These thrilling, fast-paced contemporary novels inspired by Norse mythology will set pulses racing-and keep pages turning!
"Grandpa was going to murder us. Not with an axe. Not with a shovel. But with words."
When Sarah, Michael and Angie arrive from the US to spend summer vacation with their grandpa in Gimli, Manitoba, they are prepared for his scary stories based on Icelandic mythology. But they are anything but prepared when events from the story about a draugr -- a man who comes back from the dead -- begin to happen around them.
The Haunting of Drang Island
"If you're going to die, die with your boots on. That's what my Grandpa Thursten used to say."
When Michael and his father arrive on Drang Island for a camping trip, they find that all the rumors they've heard are true. The island is desolate, sparsely populated and far from civilization. It seems the perfect place for Michael's father to finish the last chapters of his book of Norse stories. Unfortunately it soon becomes apparent that some of the other rumors they've heard about Drang Island -- stories about spirits, strange sacrifices and a serpent lurking in the ocean -- might also be true!
The Loki Wolf
"On the third night the worst nightmare -- the very worst -- invaded my mind. Loping behind me was a gigantic wolf, its jaws snapping together and tearing off pieces of my flesh. There was no blood. No pain. But bit by bit he swallowed chunks of my body until nothing of Angela Laxness remained."
When Angie dreams about being devoured by a giant wolf, her parents tell her it is only her imagination. But later, while on a vacation in Iceland with her grandfather and two cousins, she begins to wonder if the dream wasn't a warning. First, there are strange scratches outside her window. Then she finds out that sheep have recently been disappearing from her uncle's farm. But it isn't until she and her cousins go to the old croft house that they discover the horrifying truth.
Each book is also available as an individual e-Book. But don't look at these covers. They will scare you half to death (PS click on the links at the side of the page to order the books).
"Draugr is a higher class example of the horror genre that has so grabbed the present generation of young readers. And the bits of Norse mythology that are included are fascinating!"
"The eldritch cast, relentless pace, and occasional gruesome touch create a familiar recipe for Fear Street fans, with a generous dollop of Icelandic lore for flavor."
Northern Frights is a series of novels based on Norse mythology. Draugr was nominated for a Saskatchewan Book Award and a Small Press Book Award. All three books have been well received by fans, teachers, and librarians. My grandma liked them, too.
