‘Are you cold, my children? Are you cold?”
Ghost Dance : Book 3 of The Ghost World Sequence.

But the Czar is mad. Fearing death, he employs an English wizard, Master Jenkins, to make him immortal. But Jenkins is an imposter.
When Shingebiss arrives, with her true magic, the Czar takes her for an angel, sent to him from God.

Can Shingebiss survive the jealousy and hatred at the Czar's court?

But the old shaman knows that everything must die, even the land, and will not help. Shingebiss is young, without a shaman's powers, but she refuses to believe that the Czar can't be stopped. Full of courage and fear, she sets off to spell the Czar and save the Northlands. Bookseller Inventory # 003550
