Description of this Book

Storm of Odin is the youngest stormhound of the Wild Hunt that haunts lightning-filled skies. He has longed for the time when he will be able to join his brothers and sisters but on his very first hunt he finds he can't keep up and falls to earth, landing on the A40 just outside Abergavenny. Enter twelve-year-old Jessica Price, who finds and adopts a cute puppy from an animal rescue centre. And suddenly, a number of strange people seem very interest in her and her new pet . . . Storm. Most interested, is the creepy Olivia Bloodworth, who has been banished by the Gods and sees an opportunity in using Storm to return her to favour. As Jessica starts to see that there's something different about her beloved dog, she needs to work out which of her new friends she can trust.
