I just finished reading this book today. The book kept you wanting to read it from the beginning pages to the very end. It says that it is a new series, and I am definitely wanting to read more of this series. The figures of this book like Torka, Karana, and Lonit make you want to hear more of their adventures, and wanting to learn more of their triumphs in the time when life was a hardship.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It not only allows you to learn more of the peoples in our history, the way the world was at one time, but also makes you feel like these people could be your friends in the world now.
