Just Published: The Sleeping Army

Adam Stower has illustrated the new book written by Francesca Simon, The Sleeping Army. A story about Freya, who lives in modern Britain with a twist: people still worship the old Viking gods. Stuck with her dad on his night shift at the British Museum, Freya is drawn to the Lewis Chessmen and Heimdall’s Horn. Unable to resist, she blows the horn waking four chesspieces from their enchantment. Summoned to Asgard, they are ordered on a perilous mission.

Here’s a selection of the interior illustrations and the hardback cover.
