As the bombs rain down in the Second World War, one young girl is evacuated to the English countryside.

Struggling to make sense of her new wartime life, she is given a copy of a book of ancient Norse myths and her inner and outer worlds are transformed. Linguistically stunning and imaginatively abundant, Byatt's mesmerising tale - inspired by the myth of Ragnarok -is a landmark piece of storytelling from one of the world's truly great writers. The Myths series brings together some of the world's finest writers, each of whom has retold a myth in a contemporary and memorable way.

Authors in the series include Karen Armstrong, Margaret Atwood, A.S.

Byatt, David Grossman, Natsuo Kirino, Alexander McCall Smith, Philip Pullman, Ali Smith and Jeanette Winterson.
