The Lovereading4Kids comment
A thrilling story of the danger of one boy with special powers. Nian's been studying with the Lords for years and he is by far the most powerful person in the House but even he doesn't have the power to get rid of the owlman.What does it want? And how can it be stopped before it causes too much damage?
The Truth Sayer: March of the Owlmen by Sally Prue
It's all change in the House of Truth. The ancient power of the House has been swept away, and now there's a new energy about the place. For the first time in years there are lots of new boys arriving to study with the Lords. It's all very exciting - but Nian, the Truth Sayer, feels stifled. He's by far the most powerful person in the House, but what good is that? Having great powers isn't easy - especially when they can be so very very dangerous...Then the owlman arrives. It's terrifying, and even Nian can't make it go away. Who sent it? What does it want? And can it be stopped before it destroys everyone in the House?
'There are no bounds to Prue's imagination and invention and this is the first of an interlocking series of stories, so much fun and many thrills to come.'
'This delightful fantasy puts one in mind of the early work of Diana Wynne Jones with its light touch, quirky humour and brisk pace that avoids making heavy weather of the mechanics of parallel worlds, whilst at the same time exploring the complex nature of different forms of truth. It should be an absorbing read for both girls and boys of nine and up.'
[Of Cold Tom]: 'This is one of those rare, strange, wonderful books that makes you see the world through different eyes
'This is an excellent book. It is gripping and exciting - you never want to put it down!'
'An outstanding debut novel'
'So compelling it almost defies description'
