Storm Hound - Claire Fayers

Storm of Odin is the youngest member of Odin’s Wild Hunt, and has longed to join his brothers and sisters in their race through the sky. But on his very first hunt he can’t keep up with the pack and he plummets to Earth, landing just outside the Welsh town of Abergavenny.

Transformed into a tiny, cute puppy, Storm is taken to a rescue shelter where he’s adopted by 12-year-old Jessie Price, who has problems of her own. She’s just moved to Abergavenny with her Dad and brother after her parents divorced, and she’s struggling to fit in.

As Storm battles the indignities of mortal life – vets, cats, obedience classes where the humans completely fail to obey him – Jessie notices strange people arriving in town, all of them suspiciously interested in magic.

Can Storm shake off the magic-hunters and escape back to the Wild Hunt? And can Jessie bear to part with her beloved pet?

Claire Fayers grew up in South Wales, and lives in Cardiff, where she loves to tramp tramp around castles in the rain, looking for dragons. She has worked as a church caretaker, a shoe shop assistant, in accountancy, in health and safety, in IT, and in a library. Now she’s very happy to be a full-time author, sharing her workspace with a pair of demanding cats and an ever-expanding collection of model dinosaurs.

Her first booked debuted as Waterstones Book of the Month, and her books have been shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award and many regional awards.

When Claire isn’t writing, you can find her on her allotment, growing a variety of wonky vegetables.
