Well, she has brought home some stories, - stories that I as sure you are well worth listening to, and that nobody is ever tired of hearing. I have written them down for you, so that you may read them yourselves, or coax grandmother to read them to you; but once for all, I charge you, give good heed, for Mahrchen often teaches many a wise lesson, and if you pay attention to what she says, you will not have to learn the same things out of other books, which would be much harder to read, and would not give you half so much pleasure.

This fast paced adventure story is about a boy who finds himself shipwrecked in the English Channel in the late 1820's. He has los...t all memory of his past due to those circumstances. The only other survivor provides him a box and upon the man's last breath he forwards a message to return the contents to the queen in Turin. Within that box is the most incredible necklace the world has even seen or known. This string of gems could be his curse or fortune. He manages to get ashore with the help of fishermen, who quickly attempt to acquire it for themselves. The boy embarks on his journey over the Alps in a almost futile attempt to deliver the jewel to the castle in Turin. He finds out Italian soldiers and an Englishman are also in pursuit. But the real threat is yet to come from Norse Gods. They are the original owners of the preciously rare red diamond necklace from another realm. The ice royals Ullr and Skadi sense and feel the necklace's return as they unleash an army of Alp legends in a desperate attempt to reacquire their lost gift and in turn increase their dwindling snowy kingdom into a new ice age. This becomes a life or death challenge that the boy must undertake or Europe will be frozen beneath the snow. He must find his own courage, and acquire allies to evade the gods and their evil suitors. The odds are staked heavily against him as man and legend will be relentless in their vicious quest to acquire the charm from another world. read more
