For fans of Nancy Farmer and Lloyd Alexander comes international bestselling author Michelle Paver’s second novel in the Bronze Age adventure series.
 
While searching for his kidnapped sister, Outsider Hylas takes a dangerous detour when he’s captured as a slave and sent to the copper mines of Thalakrea. Hylas faces brutal overseers and lethal cave-ins while evading his enemies, the Crows.

But the prophecy is still at work and Hylas cannot escape its grasp, especially when the anger of the oldest god is awakened.

About the Author:

Michelle Paver is the international bestselling author of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series and won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize. Ms. Paver lives in the UK.

From Booklist:

Three Bronze Age teens struggle against their fates: Hylas, who is ignoring a prophecy about ending the reign of the violent Crows; Pirra, whose high priestess mother’s wedding plans for her daughter involve a strategic alliance with the Crows; and Telamon, a son of the Crows, torn between upholding and foreswearing the ideals of his warrior tribe. Hylas does attempt to circumvent fate, but developments convince him that he must fulfill his destiny. Paver references past events in the narrative, but readers need the first volume, Gods and Warriors (2012), before embarking on these latest adventures, which follow a similar pattern to the first, even including another endearing animal familiar (this time a lion cub). Strengths of the book include plenty of information about the Bronze Age, and accessible writing, particularly for reluctant readers or boys who think they hate history. Grades 5-8. --Cindy Welch
