Chasing the valley
By Skye Melki-Wegner

ISBN: 9781742759548
Book one in a new fantasy series for young adult readers.

If the premise that this is a cross between the camaraderie of The Ranger’s Apprentice series and the struggle for survival of The Hunger Games then this book is going to be a must read.

Danika has always struggled just to get through each day and when the tyrannous king launches an attack to punish her city she must risk her life to escape over the city’s walls. She joins a group of refugees who seek the legendary safe haven, a place called the Magnetic Valley. Things don’t go to plan and before long she becomes the most wanted fugitive pursued by vicious hunters. Danika is also struggling with magical abilities. And then she meets Lukas and struggles even more with mixed feelings and loyalties. Survival is an even bigger struggle. Look out for this one. Cool trailer too. You can read the first few pages here and get stuck in. Do enjoy!
