AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At his coming of age, Thorvald learns a devastating secret, and steals away on a perilous voyage in search of the father he has never known. His loyal shadow, Creidhe, was never meant to be part of his desperate journey. But Thorvald has underestimated her.

'The Long Knife people of the Lost Isles are not what the weary travellers were expecting. Suspicious, frightened and ruled by a cruel tyrant, they will not explain why Creidhe must cover her golden hair, or why there are so few children amongst them. But then a baby is born, and Creidhe discovers the horrific truth of the curse the vengeful Unspoken have placed on the Long Knife people – and the only possible solution. The future of the islands depends on a visionary child: the powerful seer of the Unspoken, Foxmask. Snatched away in infancy, the boy is held on the forbidding Isle of Clouds, protected by ancient forces of nature. Only when he is returned to the Unspoken can peace be restored.

'But there are deeper secrets in this battle for survival. And there is another way – an unthinkable way –to lift the curse. One that the newcomers discover when it may be too late…'
