A terrifying tale of a dark and deadly secret, beautifully told by million-copy bestseller, Michelle Paver
Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'Nyasaland Times', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. She is the author of the brilliantly successful children's series, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, and also the bestselling ghost story Dark Matter. Following a trek in the Himalayas, she returned with her second, Thin Air, a chilling tale set on the icy slopes of Kangchenjunga.
