Beschreibung

Natalie thinks she is an ordinary girl until she sees a spell in the supermarket car park.

She soon discovers her mother came from Earthaven, a place of breathtaking wonder where unicorns roam and giant trees talk. Her father is a Thrall who sells spells across the boundary between worlds. And Natalie has inherited powers the exiled spellmage Lord Hawk needs, if he is to take his revenge on the Spell Lords who banished him.

Snatched from her family and forced to choose sides in a magical battle between two worlds, Natalie's only hope is to join forces with her captor's son, the inept spell-caster Merlin. Can they discover Hawk's evil plans in time to save Earthaven and its magic?

"Roberts knows exactly how to rack up the tension and create parallel universes." The Guardian.

"A thrilling and fast-paced fantasy adventure with shades of Tolkien and Pullman." The Bookseller.

First published in 2001, Spellfall was longlisted for the Carnegie Medal and voted "the book most likely to fill the Harry Potter void" by American independent booksellers in the same year.

A sequel - Spellspring - is now available.

Portrait

Katherine Roberts grew up in the southwest of England, where her first fantasy stories were told to her little brother at bedtime. She graduated in mathematics from the University of Bath, after which she worked for the General Electric Company, and later for an American company developing business models for petrol stations. When redundancy struck in 1989, she fulfilled her childhood dream of working with horses in a National Hunt racing yard, writing in her spare time.

After several years of writing short fantasy and horror stories for genre magazines, her first book Song Quest won the 2000 Branford Boase Award for best debut novel for young readers, kick-starting her career as an author. Her books have been published by HarperCollins, Chicken House and Scholastic US, and translated into 12 languages worldwide – one of them even hit the bestseller list in Taiwan. Her latest series for young readers, The Pendragon Legacy about King Arthur's daughter, is published in the UK by Templar Books.

Away from her computer, Katherine enjoys folk music, cycling, skiing, and horse riding holidays. She has flown a glider solo and scared herself silly doing aerobatics in a small plane. All of these experiences eventually find their way into her books – though sometimes the horse becomes a unicorn, and the plane becomes a dragon!
