Wildwitch: Life Stealer

Wildwitch: Volume Three

by Lene Kaaberbol, Charlotte Barslund,

From Lene Kaaberbøl, known as the Danish J.K. Rowling: Book three in the Wildwitch series, an acclaimed new children's fantasy series about a young girl who can communicate with and control the natural world.

A sparrow flitting under the forest canopy, a snake slithering on its belly across a carpet of leaves, a hawk swooping down on a squirrel: Clara finds herself drawn into a variety of animal minds and caught up in a deadly dance of predator and prey.

The dramatic and mysterious third part in the Wildwitch story sees Clara discover more about her magical powers and about herself, as an unexpected and frightening new danger emerges from the shadows.
