Overview Demonenes sang

Thirteen year old Thorgil is leading a quite normal life in 1930's Oslo, until one day everything is turned upside down. Thorgil discovers that he is half dwarf, and that his father, whom he has never met, is King of the Mountain Dwarves.

Accompanied by two warriors, he leaves the security of home and sets out on a journey through a restless Europe to the Kingdom of the Dwarves in the wild mountains of Tien Shan. But the kingdom is threatened by both internal and external enemies.

Thorgil soon becomes an important participant in the struggle to prevent the dwarves' kingdom from going under.

Demonenes sang is the first book in The Wandering Star Trilogy, and Chris Tvedt's debut as a children's book writer.

'Chris Tvedt has managed to create his very own universe in which he mixes fantasy and reality. The novel is excitingly developed and has a lot of drive.'

Reviews from Demonenes sang
"Chris Tvedt har på et vis skapt en moderne fantasyroman hvor handlingen er lagt til vårt eget univers. Tien Shan er ikke et sted han har funnet opp, men som faktisk finnes. […] Handlingen foregår på 1930-tallet, og det snakkes om både nazi-Tyskland og kommunist-Sovjet. Slik kan leseren samtidig lære litt om historie, selv om romanen ikke er utpreget historisk. Dette blir blandet inn i et univers av mystiske vesener som munker og yetier. De har ikke gode hensikter, og det er noe som tilsier at det som foregår i Europa har en sammenheng med ondskapen som rår i Thien San. Slik sett lykkes Tvedt med å skape sitt helt egne univers hvor han blander fantasi og virkelighet. Romanen er spennende bygd opp og har mye driv."Kristina Brembach Furuvang, Barnebokkritikk.no
