Summary

Book 1: CHILD OF THE SKERRIES (DJUPGRAVEN - 2016)

Even though twelve-year-old Tuva doesn’t have a lot in common with her classmates and keeps to herself most of the time, she has always felt at home in the archipelago and on Harö where she lives. She knows all the small islands and every skerry like the back of her hand. This particular autumn though, something has changed. People disappear without a trace in the sea, dark shadows undulate beneath the waves and supernatural creatures can be spotted in the trees.
CHILD OF THE SKERRIES is the first part of Camilla and Viveca Sten’s thriller series for tween readers. Supernatural elements from Norse mythology meet old sailor superstitions, as main protagonist Tuva battles dark forces. Her story is a poignant tale of what it’s like to grow up on an island in the archipelago, when the summer guests have left and the fog lies thick over the ocean.
