"Pure, glorious escapism."

Olia’s quest through the land of forbidden magic (which has earth, air, fire and water domes) introduces her to a chained black cat called Koshka who is really a witch, cheeky water sprites, and an owl-fancying giant called Golov, among other delicious characters. The teenager must cut the wizard’s beard with a sword and, ultimately, believe in herself (for this is the publishing world in 2020, after all) to secure her family’s future. Pure, glorious escapism.
