Reviews

With its ironic twists and moral dilemmas, the action-packed plot darts from one protagonist to another with compelling urgency. Bell's fluid translation captures the peril, power and pathos of this truly epic drama in which four young heroes taste love, camaraderie, grief and triumph. Bravo!
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Teeming with heroic acts, heartbreaking instances of sacrifice and intriguing characters--such as the horse-men, a tribe of gentle giants willing to fight to the death for their masters--the book will keep readers absorbed and set imaginations spinning.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) The teens' dangerous journeys bring terrifying enemies, unexpected allies, heartbreaking tragedy, and a discovery of both the elemental strength of the human voice and the resiliency of the human spirit.... this absorbing, fable-like story celebrates the infinite power of love and courage to inspire others, build a community, and make a difference.
--Booklist (starred review)
