It won’t be any surprise to Voyage to the Magical North’s readers that its author Claire Fayers once worked at the University of Cardiff’s Science Library, because her first book includes a library island and its main character, Brine Seaborne, has an insatiable passion for books. Having been found all on her own in a rowboat as a little girl, with nothing on her person save for a piece of a rare starshell that’s a key component of spell-casting, Brine has since looked after a cross magician and his annoying sidekick, Peter. Quite by accident, the latter is now Brine’s adventure companion, when they find themselves aboard a pirate ship called the Onion, on a voyage to the Magical North. But does the Magical North actually exist? Can Peter and Brine become actual friends? Will the ship, and everyone on it, be eaten by sea monsters? And, most importantly, is it possible to be both a librarian and a pirate?
