Seven o’clock on a Monday morning, five hundred years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar again. . . . Not that anyone would admit it was goblins. In Maddy Smith’s world, order rules. Chaos, old gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours–all of these were supposedly vanquished centuries ago. But Maddy knows that a small bit of magic has survived. The “ruinmark” she was born with on her palm proves it–and makes the other villagers fearful that she is a witch (though helpful in dealing with the goblins-in-the-cellar problem). But the mysterious traveler One-Eye sees Maddy’s mark not as a defect, but as a destiny. And Maddy will need every scrap of forbidden magic One-Eye can teach her if she is to survive that destiny. - See more at: http://www.randomhouse.com/audio/listeninglibrary/catalog/display.php?isbn=9780739362853&view=details#sthash.0dyKsLkR.dpuf

    " Somewhere between three and four stars, really. I do enjoy Joanne Harris's writing style. It's evocative and flowy. This was one of those standard "Fate of the World Rests in the Hands of a Little Girl Who is More Than She Seems" stories. But those can be good. I liked the Norse mythology elements. "

    " I was immediately interested in the post-Ragnarok world, but there was too much to keep track of in terms of the new Order, the various levels of Worlds and all the old gods and Vanir. I liked the way the author played with the archetypes of the old gods, and especially the complexity and desperation of Loki. I enjoyed being surprised by the identity of the Nameless One. "

    " Started out well, but quickly got muddied with too many characters and story lines. The central plot was lost, and the end seemed like Harris was trying for too much. If there is a sequel I definitely won't waste my time. "

    " I thought Runemarks was good but not great. It was a little overwhelming at times trying to keep up with all the different characters and their current situations. I did enjoy the final conflict in the end, and the solution. I will definitely read any sequels that may come in the future, I just hope they aren't as busy. "
