So the end has come, I’m sure it was magnificent, Ragnarok and all that. But that’s not what this story is about; Runemarks is a tale about Maddy Smith. Cursed or blessed with a ruinmark or runemark, depending on how you look at it, she is not your everyday End of the Worlder. Her peers don’t like her, the townsfolk mistrust her, and her father is more than a little afraid. The only people who have any sympathy for her are Old Crazy Nan Fey and One-Eye who is a traveler and only visits the village once a year or so. Maddy has always been able to see and do things that no one else can, things that could get her killed if she’s not careful. One thing leads to another and soon Maddy and One-Eye begin the adventure of her life, leading to places and people unheard of in the End of the World. Strange creatures and powers from before the end, from way back in the beginning. Join Maddy on her strange and wonderful journey, Harris will leave you gasping for more.
