Book Spotlight: Seventh City

Have you heard of a place called Inik Katsuk?” The world seems to have gone quiet again.

Inik Katsuk, the Seventh City.

I nod.

“Have you seen it?”

“I have only heard of it in tales.”

“And do you believe them, these tales?”


Let me tell you a story that happened so long ago that only the hills and rivers can remember the time . . . .”

All her life, thirteen-year-old Maki has heard tales of the legendary city of gold, buried deep in the northern frontier. But when her village is burned and her brother captured by cruel invaders, the legend becomes desperately real.

Armed with a wolf-dog and a heart of courage, Maki sets out on a journey that will demand all her strength and cunning. She is determined to bring her brother home at all costs. Yet as her quest leads her deep into a wilderness of ancient dangers, Maki realizes that even for her, some prices are too high to pay.
