The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2009 Branford Boase Best Debut Novel Award
Go back in time to Dark Age Britain for this powerful story about loyalty and survival in another time. Abandoned by his father, Essa makes a new life for himself among the Wolf Clan. But, why did his father leave him and will he ever come back? When war comes, Essa finds he has invaluable unexpected powers which link him to the father he has never known.
The Lovereading comment:
Warring kingdoms, bloody feuds and a battle for survival, step back into the Dark Ages with this riveting, evocative and epic adventure from a debut writer. At breakneck speed journey through a distant place and time, where trees, animals and people inhabit the earth in closer harmony, and loyalty is the dearest prize of all.
Bloodline by Katy Moran
Set in the Dark Ages of Britain, this is the powerful story of Essa, whose father Cai, a travelling bard and occasional spy, leaves him behind one night at a settlement of the Wolf Clan. Essa is a survivor and forges new alliances and even love, but never stops wondering why his father never came back. The settlement is under threat from cruel Mercian bands across the forests, and Essa is caught up in a heart-stopping journey to avert disaster. A battle is inevitable, but Essa finds he can influence its outcome in a way nobody but his father would understand.
