Breathtaking sequel to The Oracle, the Archon must face a journey of treachery and adventure across the pitiless desert in a bid to save his people ...

The Archon vows to lead a pilgrimage to the Well of Songs to seek peace with the Rain Queen and save the land from the terrible drought. The Well is hidden in the mountains across the desert. But he is not the only one with his sight set on the mountains: Argelin, the tyrannical and power-hungry General, follows behind, an ever-present threat, with his heart set on the riches to be found.

With only Oblek, Seth and two tomb-thieves known as the Jackal and the Fox for company, the Archon's journey is treacherous and dangerous. They must face the Great Desolation and the monstrous animals outlined on the desert floor, animals with mythical powers, and they must survive without Mirany, bearer-of-the-god and true friend of the Archon, who has had to remain behind to face a threat much closer to home ...

Review:

Once, again, briliiantly imagined (Planet Magazine)

Beautifully written and a compelling tale (The Times)

High suspense and drama -- next volume please (The School Librarian)

This beautifully set, canny story of politics and religion ends in a resounding success, but will keep readers hungry for the third installment in the projected trilogy (The Horn Book)

Sophisticated yet unobtrusive prose, creating a world and a tale that invite totaly reader immersion (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

Fisher has created an incredible, detailed and believable setting...this compelling novel makes a satisfying sequel but can also stand on its own (School Library Journal)

Gripping plots and haunting landscapes...the toughness and realism underlying all Fisher's fantasies is what makes them believable as well as wholly absorbing and aesthetically pleasing (The Times)

Assassination attempts, double-crosses and plots within plots enliven this breathlessly paced follow-up ... will have readers queuing up for the concluding volume. (Kirkus Reviews)

rattles along at a dizzying pace ... closes on a scene of high suspense and drama ... next volume please. (The School Librarian)

THE ORACLE: In the first part of a two-book fantasy, Catherine Fisher has conjured up an intoxicating world reminiscent of the Arabian Nights. Highly recommended (The Bookseller)
