Age interest from 9 years.
In the magical village of Everspring, everyone receives a fate card before their twelfth birthday, sent down on a Fate Card from the mysterious Mount Never.
But when Ember Shadow’s card arrives, it’s blank. Then her sister’s card arrives and it says she will die before her next birthday. Ember is not going to let that happen.
With her heart full of courage and her head full of inventions, Ember sets off through the forbidden realms of Mount Never, determined to challenge what – or who – is responsible for the cards.
But the mountain is full of magic, trickery and curious creatures … and if Ember survives all that, will she like what she finds at the top?
