Magic and fire are kindred things ...

Iona Balfour's life is turned upside down when her beloved aunt Grizel is executed for the crime of witchcraft. Before she dies, Grizel appoints Iona as guardian of a precious family bloodstone and tells her she must flee their village and deliver the stone to the mysterious Guild of the Green Lion.

Accompanied by a new friend, Cal, Iona soon realises that she's awakened the powers of the bloodstone. But it promises to be a perilous journey. The wolf month is no time to be on the road. And there's a witch hunter on Iona's trail, who has a strange obsession with the stone.

When a devastating betrayal throws her into the hands of her enemies, Iona soon finds herself in the fight of her life. Will she suffer the same fate as her aunt, or will she escape the witch hunter and fulfil her destiny?

    A line on the cover says that this book will 'grip you by the throat and won't let go' and I can tell you for certain, it's true! Impossible to put down. Cleverly written too. I felt like I was in Scotland 500 years ago and I could see it all unfold before my eyes as I followed the adventures of fourteen year old Iona Balfour. The ending is really, really good. I did not see it coming and neither will you. You should definitely read this book. For teens and adults alike. I reckon even an eleven-year-old with an inquiring mind would love it.
