Rage undertakes a dangerous journey into the mysterious Valley in search of magick to cure her mother. It’s a world nothing like her own. Streets move, animals talk, and it’s hard to know who to trust—but even harder to find her way home.
First published in 2002, shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children’s Literature, [Billy Thunder and the] Night Gate is the first in a planned trilogy by bestselling and much loved fantasy author Isobelle Carmody. It was followed by Winter Door, also in the Untapped Collection, but the third title has long remained unwritten. Will the inclusion of the first two books in the Untapped Collection inspire the author to complete the trilogy?
