Set in a mythological Scotland, three young people find themselves the only survivors when their clan is attacked by warriors and they are forced to leave their home island of Skye
When all you've ever known is stolen, what will you risk to get it back?
Agatha is a good Hawk. She patrols the sea wall, and does it with pride, no matter what anyone else says about her right to be there. But when disaster strikes and her clan is brutally swept away in the longboats of an invading deamhain horde, she must leave the island and team up with the only other survivors - Jaime, a skinny teenage Angler who is afraid of the sea, and Lileas, a young girl from a rival tribe - to find a way of rescuing the only family they have ever known.
Their journey will take them from the Isle of Skye across the haunted Scotian mainland, where ravenous wildwolves, an abandoned queen and a horde of murderous shadows lie waiting for them.
NOTE: Contains violent scenes including deaths. Agatha is a character with Down's syndrome and around half of the book is narrated from her perspective. In the world of these characters there isn't a word for her condition but others react to her 'difference', 'what is wrong with her? etc' and at one point one character states that if she had been born as part of his own tribe, she would have been killed at birth. She is presented positively throughout and has an active, crucial role in the events of the story.
