If you’ve been in the shop recently you’ve probably heard Maisie wax lyrical about how great this middle grade debut is already… But it really is fantastic! Fireborn will have you on the edge of your seat and on the verge of tears, rooting for Twelve, Widge and their friends throughout.

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 the 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.
