Ice-covered sand and frozen seas -- not exactly what you'd expect on your summer holiday, even in St Andrews. But this isn't just awful Scottish weather; Josh soon discovers that something terrible is happening to the seaside town.
With his new friend Callie and her enormous dog Luath, Josh is thrown headlong into a storm of witches, ice creatures, magic and the Winter King. Eternal winter threatens, unless they can stop the Winterbringers once and for all
'Arbuthnott skilfully blurs the boundaries between real and vividly imagined other worlds. Well-sustained suspense, very real-feeling characters, a genuinely chilling atmosphere and unguessable plotting make for a compelling read. Whether you're in it for the fantasy, the thrills, the myth, the mystery or history there's something for every 9 to 13 reader, boy or girl...it's definitely one to recommend.'
--Eileen Armstrong, School Librarian Journal
'This is a great adventure story full of tension and a bit blood-curdling in places. It is a well-written story, very gripping and exciting. Excellent read!'
--Claire, Holyrood High, Teen Titles
'I thought this book was extremely good and very exciting and would recommend it.'
Molly (age 12), Education Otherwise
'An involving and accomplished fantasy mystery by a Scottish writer fast establishing an enthusiastic readership.'
-- Sunday Herald
