The only thing that he never failed to do was to look after the village’s bukshas, a kind of breed between cow and sheep.
Until the bukshas’ lake rans dry and no one kno ...more

This story, complete with a map at the beginning for the reader, is the perfect start for kids interested the LOTR genre but aren't old enough to tackle Tolkien. I especially like that Rowan, the main character, is a scared kid, not a hulking grown-up, and the readers can identify with his emotions and actions the whole way through.
This was the perfect challenge for my son, who is done w ...more

I think I loved this book more on reread, even though I will still stand by my original rating and review. The ending really hit me in the feels this time, and I think that I really let myself connect with the main character more. I also think that my love for Rowan as a character has increased since the first time I read this.
