"Northwards is a witty, heartwarming novel packed with adventure. After enjoying reviewing Moon Rabbit by Oliver Eade last year, I was excited to read his new book. I was not disappointed. Northwards tells the thrilling tale of Jenny, a schoolgirl on a mission to the icy summits of the Arctic. There she must battle the evil Lord Kranyak and his army with help from with help from dome of the inhabitants of the mysterious North. This gripping novel proves that with courage, teamwork and true friendships, good can overcome evil."
