And the sales description:
Go north with the shaman’s daughter this Christmas!
When Arctic storms prevent her friend from flying south for Christmas, Luui Angakkuarneq, the shaman’s daughter, strikes a deal with Northwind to secure safe passage for the pilot, Aunix Cobick. But tricky winds can’t be trusted, and Luui knows she won’t succeed without a little help.
Northwind is a fantastical story inspired by Greenland myths and legends woven into a Christmas adventure story set in the near future.
Following on from the previous year’s advent calendar, Yule at Aurora Station, Northwind continues the adventures of Luui Angakkuarneq, the precocious five-year-old from the Greenland Missing Persons series, now grown up, as she tries to get her friend home safely in time for Christmas.
If you like northern tales of adventure full of mythical beasts, impossible tasks, treacherous weather, and cheeky spirits, Northwind is definitely for you.
Pick up Northwind and spend a mythical Christmas with the shaman’s daughter this December!
Luui merch is available from the Arluuk Press store.
You might be interested to know that this story was inspired by a story I started by never finished. This blog post about A Moonlight Climb reveals the origin of the challenge Northwind gives to Luui, but it was originally intended to be given to a much younger girl in Alaska.
However, that project never really got off the ground. Whoever the girl was, I’m sure she won’t mind Luui picking up and continuing the story.
