From the Back Cover
Living on the outskirts of the tribe Tillu is happy spending her time tending her strange, slow dreamy child Kerlew and communing with the land to heal the sick and bring blessing on new births.
However Carp, the Shaman, an ugly wizened old man whose magic smells foul to Tillu, desires both mother and child. Tillu knows that Carp's magic will steal her son and her soul. So begins a harrowing and desperate pursuit across the winter-ravaged lands, as Tillu's fight leads them into an uncertain, and deadly, new future.
From the author of the hugely successful 'Assassin' and 'Liveship Traders' trilogies comes this mesmerising two-part story of shaman magic set in the harsh wilderness of a prehistoric land. The tale will reach its powerful conclusion in 'Wolf's Brother'.
