The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2014 Book of the Month The third adventure for Hylas, now landed on the plague ridden island of Keftiu which is also gripped by the coldest winter ever known and covered in ash from the eruption of the enormous volcano. Hylas’s reception is far from welcoming and his hope of finding his companion Pirra and the lion cub Havoc looks hopeless. While Hylas fears the worst about his former companions, Havoc is also searching for the human company he so badly needs. Michelle Paver brings the devastated world of the past vividly to life and is especially good at seeing events from an animal’s point of view.

The Eye of the Falcon by Michelle Paver
Winter has been colder than anyone can remember, and there is no spring. The eruption of Thalakrea has shrouded the sky in ash, and blotted out the Sun. Fate brings Hylas to the island of Keftiu. He is desperate to find his friends: Pirra, the daughter of the High Priestess, and Havoc the lion cub. But Keftiu has suffered more than anywhere from the fury of the gods, and the once-prosperous island has been ravaged by cold, famine and plague. As Hylas sets off alone to seek his friends, he is tormented by the fear that Pirra and Havoc may not have survived the winter...
