The finfolk have summoned an Azawan, a creature of nightmare, and the Orkadi are powerless to stop it.

Talorc, whose family were slain by the demon, and Runa, Princess of the Orkadi, set out to destroy the Azawan.

The secrets they uncover will change their world forever - if they live long enough to share them...

Wolf Brother meets Percy Jackson in The Shattering Sea, a stunning young adult fantasy adventure set in Prehistoric Scotland. Fast-paced, full of twists and rooted in Celtic mythology, it is perfect for fans of Michelle Paver, Sophie Anderson and Neil Gaiman.

The author, Daniel Allison, is an acclaimed oral storyteller who tells Scottish myths and legends everywhere from schools and prisons to global festivals. He hosts the House of Legends Podcast and is the author of The Shattering Sea, Scottish Myths & Legends and Finn & The Fianna. His fiction is rooted in ancient Scottish tales of selkies, kelpies and witchcraft, and is adored by adults and children alike.
