The Scaler of Peaks

Karin Erlandsson

The Scaler of Peaks is the third book in the four-part series Song of the Eye Stone. Set in a fantastical world, it is an epic saga of friendship, longing and the things that really matter in life.

Iberis has destroyed the northern port town. Miranda, Syrsa and Lydia have set out on a quest to find the eye stone - the source of Iberis' power - and destroy it. Together they must scale inhospitable peaks, battle the cold, and navigate the strange ways of the mountain folk in order to journey deep into the mountains, where the eye stone is being held. But they have no idea what dangers lie in store for them.

Praise for this book
"Finnish Swedish-speaking author and journalist Karin Erlandsson is one of the most successful and most acclaimed children's authors in the Swedish language and she has woven a fantastical tale, skilfully translated by Annie Prime, mixed with realism about the natural world of the ocean. Her protagonist Miranda is tough and feisty and not always an easy character to like, but as her relationship with Syrsa evolves she develops a softer side as she begins to learn the value of friendship and what matters in life." -- OutsideInWorld
