Description - The Year Of The Tiger by Alison Lloyd

Oh the edge of the Han Empire, the Great Wall is crumbling. And, on the other side, China's enemies are gathering strength.

In the shadow of the wall, two very different boys - Hu and Ren - are thrown together, hoping to win an archery contest. But in the year of the Tiger trouble stalks them ... When everything goes wrong, can Hu and Ren work together to save the town and the empire from destruction?

A thrilling story - full of action and adventure - set during one of the most fascinating and dramatic periods in history.

Author Biography - Alison Lloyd

Alison Lloyd started learning Chinese in school because it was a challenge, then later went to live in China for two years - she was living there when army tanks rolled in to suppress the student movement in 1989. Alison loves history - both the big sweep of events and the little details of how people lived. Her favourite stories are about people's deep feelings - hope and despair, loyalty and betrayal, love and loss. Put these things together in a book and she can't put it down. That's why she wrote her first novel Year of the Tiger, and it's sequel Battle of the Jade Horse. She is also the author of the CBCA shortlisted non-fiction -Wicked Warriors and Evil Emperors - and the Letty books in the Australian Girl series. Before she wrote Year of the Tiger, Alison worked for the Australian Government, in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Alison lives in Melbourne with her family.
