This week's Book of the Week has been a huge success in France and is now casting its spell over English-language readers. Christelle Dabos's exciting YA fantasy, A Winter's Promise, takes the reader into the world of the Arks, floating celestial islands between and within which a range of remarkable characters vie for power. Will plain-spoken, headstrong Ophelia find a way through the intrigues that surround her when she follows her fiancé to the capital of a cold, icy ark known as the Pole?
