Since their takeover of Obernewtyn, the secret community of Misfits has flourished, protected by their remoteness. Led by Elspeth Gordie, whose extraordinary powers set her apart even among her Misfit friends, an expedition sets out to rescue a powerful Misfit in a distant part of the Land. Only she knows the enormity of their task. But for her is yet another challenge as she must fulfil her vow to find and dismantle the dormant deathweapons left by the Beforetimers.

From the Book

Roland shook his head decisively. 'I can do nothing to hasten the healing, Elspeth. If you rested them more often . . . '

I sighed and rubbed the tender soles of my feet. 'Kella said a warmer climate might help.'

Roland nodded absently, returning satchels of herbs to his carry-all. 'It's true cold doesn't help the healing process, but whatever miracles healers can do, changing the weather to suit their patient is not among them.'

I was startled at the unexpected touch of humour from the dour Healer guild-master. Hefting the weighty bag on to his arm, Roland gave me a piercing look. He added significantly, 'If you would stay in your room in wintertime with banked fires instead of wandering around the draughty halls – and beyond . . . '

'I am mistress of a guild,' I said.

Roland was unsympathetic. 'Garth finds no difficulty in remaining in his caves and the Teknoguild works do not crumble because of his inactivity,' he said with faint asperity.

The Teknoguild was concerned with studying the Beforetime and researching the effects, past, present and future, of the Great White. I had little interest in such things, but I had met secretly with Garth only that morning. I wondered if Roland knew.

 

About the Author Isobelle Carmody

Isobelle Carmody began the first of her highly acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles while she was still at high school, and worked on it while completing a Bachelor of Arts, and then a journalism cadetship. The series, and her short sto­ries, have established her at the forefront of fantasy writing in Australia.

Carmody currently divides her time between her home on the Great Ocean Road in Australia, and her travels abroad with her partner and daughter, spending a year each in her two residences. The Stone Key, book five of the Obernewtyn Chronicles was released in February 2008. The Sending, book six of Carmody's Obernewtyn Chronicles, is due for publishing in September 2009, as quoted by a Penguin spokesperson.

Carmody was Guest of Honor at the 2007 Australian National Science Fiction Convention, Convergence 2, held in Melbourne in June 2007.

She has written many award-winning short stories and books for young people. The Gathering was a joint winner of the 1993 CBC Book of the Year Award and the 1994 Children's Literature Peace Prize, and Billy Thunder and the Night Gate was shortlisted for the Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children's Literature in the 2001 NSW Premier's Literary Awards. This was followed by the second book in the series, The Winter Door. The Legend of Little Fur is Isobelle's first series for younger readers.
