Set in a world both familiar and fantastical, CHILDREN OF THE SHAMAN is a captivating tale of discovery, full of imagination, adventure and wonder. Raised by their aunt in a remote coastal town, Annat and Malchik have always been protected from the hostile world that surrounds them. It is now time for them to find their own way. To become true wanderers. Reunited with their father, they embark on a remarkable train journey that will take them to the frozen lands of the north. Shortly after their arrival in the town of Gard Ademar, it becomes apparent that dark forces are at work. A series of apparently senseless murders have terrified the townspeople, threatening the construction of a new tunnel. It is a mystery that will draw them into the magical kingdom of La Souterraine. A place where only a shaman can hope to survive. For more information on this or any other Orbit book, please visit the Orbit website at www.orbitbooks.co.uk
