Waterstones Says

Packed full of unforgettable characters and compelling plotting, Fowler’s electrifying debut is set in a richly imagined prehistoric world where a courageous young Huntling braves the forbidding Northern forests in search of a missing girl.

Set in the snowy northern forests of an imagined prehistoric world, Fireborn is the middle-grade debut of the decade. At turns exciting, funny and heart wrenchingly sad, it marks the introduction of an unstoppable new voice in children's storytelling.

Twelve has spoken the Pledge and now she is a Huntling. She has given up her name to train in the art of fighting monsters and keeping the peace, and she won't get to choose a new one until she has earned it.

But when the Lodge's walls are breached for the first time, and a little girl is taken, Twelve is the only one interested in going after a child...

Teaming up with Dog, the Stone Guardian of the Lodge, Twelve ends up on an epic adventure that will change her life, her name - and her entire world.
