The Glimme

Author(s): Emily Rodda

Middle Fiction

Lone Annie sees dragons in your future... She sees giants. She sees fire and water. She sees death.


Finn's life in the village of Wichant is hard. Only his drawings of the wild coastline, with its dragon-shaped clouds and headlands that look like giants, make him happy. Then the strange housekeeper from a mysterious clifftop mansion sees his talent and buys him for a handful of gold and then reveals to him seven extraordinary paintings. Finn thinks the paintings must be pure fantasy-such amazing scenes and creatures can't be real! He's wrong. Soon he is going to slip through the veil between worlds and plunge into the wonders and perils of The Glimme.

Then the strange housekeeper from a mysterious clifftop mansion sees his talent, buys him for a handful of gold and reveals seven extraordinary paintings. Finn thinks the paintings must be pure fantasy — such amazing scenes and creatures can't be real! He's wrong. Soon he is going to slip through the veil between worlds and plunge into the wonders and perils of The Glimme on a quest to stop a deadly war with the dragons.
