The Pearl in the Ice

Marina is a stowaway. But where is she going? And what’s that strange, dark shape following her through the icy deep…? Marina barely knows her father, a naval captain. He’s been away for most of her life, especially since her mother died. Yet Marina must be like him, for she feels the pull of an ocean she’s never seen. When she is packed off to boarding school to learn to be a lady, Marina decides she wants out. So she stows away on her father’s ship, on a perilous voyage into the ice. But where are they going – and why? And what is that mysterious dark shape in the deeps, that seems to be following them?
