To say this book is exellent is an understatement. William Nicholson brings this story to life with imaginatism and detail. The adventure follows Kestrel and Bowman Hath, brother and sister and the long and weary journey of the manth people to their homeland. In the previous two books the story has come across great wonders. In this the third and final book, everything is brought together in a totally new light. As you think you can guess the ending, something totally unexpected will leap out at you. This is my favourite book and i'll always have a copy on my bookshelf! It's truely the best read of my life!
