by Yaba Badoe - £7.99 Head of Zeus (2020)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781786695529 | ISBN 10: 1786695529
A leopard dances under the moon.
A wolf prowls.
A red-beaked bird flies free.
Three girls born on the same day in wolf light are bound together to protect the world. They can dazzle or destroy. They have wind-song and fire-fury at their fingertips, but their enemies are everywhere.
From the bleak steppes to the tropical forests of Ghana and the stormy moors of Cornwall, the lands they love are plundered and poisoned. The girls must rally to perfect their skills and prove the strength of sister-magic.
Steeped in elemental myth, Wolf Light is a call to us all to hear the ancient power within us and conserve our heritage.
Yaba's YA debut novel A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars was shortlisted for the 2018 Branford Boase Award and nominated for the 2019 Carnegie Medal.
