In this second book of the popular Land of Nod Trilogy, Jeff Browning continues his quest to find his father in the strange new world he has discovered. His journey takes him across a savage wilderness in which danger is inescapable.
While Jeff searches for The Prophet, his friend, Artimus, faces a less obvious but just as deadly maze of political conspiracies as he tries to convince a reluctant public that the invasion he helped thwart was only the beginning of a much more serious threat.
An epic science fiction, fantasy adventure with action and intrigue on every page.

Amir has been best friends with Dragan since they were in kinder and the boys are looking forward to starting high school together next year. Even though Amir’s parents are Bosnian Muslim and Dragan is of Serbian Orthodox background, the boys think of themselves as Australian and their cultural differences have never mattered ... until the Balkan war breaks out. Suddenly their family tells them that they are not supposed to be friends because Bosnians and Serbs are fighting overseas. Can they find a way to keep their friendship in the face of their family’s opposition?
'It tells the tale of a friendship strained by circumstances out of the boys' control and explains the reasons behind the Balkan war in terms a young person can grasp... [Amir: Friend on Loan] provide[s] insights into the individual lived experience. It is through learning about other people's stories that empathy and respect ultimately grow... [it] encourage[s] intercultural understanding and the recognition that emotions and questions of identity are universal.' Jodi Wiley, Viewpoint, Vol 22, No 1. [close]
