Helen has absolutely no interest in becoming a vet like her mother. So she isn’t best pleased when she’s asked to help an injured horse. Only this horse isn’t entirely normal, and nor are his friends. As she tries to heal him, Helen is thrust into an extraordinary world full of magical rituals, fantastic creatures and a dangerous, powerful beast known as the Master, who would destroy it all. Everything hinges on finding a lost book of questions before the winter solstice. Can Helen work out the riddles and help her new friends to make amends for a foolish mistake? This is a wonderful mixture of fable and fiction, woven together into an exciting race through Scotland landscape, accompanied by creatures from mythology and folklore.
