When the challenge is to save not just yourself but an entire community, the stakes are high.
Thrown hard on the bottom boards, I stared up at distorted mouths, faces so red I could feel their heat. they stank of rage and of something else; several frothed at the mouth; their howls drowned the clatter and shriek of gulls swerving and tilting above the mast.
Banishment is the cruellest punishment, and Selene is being driven out unjustly by her own people. Set in a New Zealand both recognisable and strangely different, CALLING THE GODS is a novel for older readers, a story of violence, love, and courage, of leadership and betrayal, of the extraordinary human ability to adapt and survive, a tale of a young woman's heroic persistence against impossible odds.
