When a playground scrap becomes a fight to the death, and an ancient curse awakes, Jack and Emma must uncover the arrowhead’s secrets – before a terrible evil is unleashed.

Award-winning children’s author Ruth Eastham weaves twists, turns and adventures into the rollercoaster ride that is Arrowhead: aspects of Norse mythology, the importance of friendship and teamwork, race-against-the-clock tension, and terror as the world as you know it is turned upside down. Follow the three friends Jack, Emma and Skuli on their mission to save the world from the evil curse, as you are drawn into an emotional and thrilling journey – but one not to be missed.
