The blockbuster bestselling series is back!


#1 New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night series, P.C. Cast, brings us Sun Warrior, an epic fantasy set in a world where humans, their animal allies, and the earth itself has been drastically changed. A world filled with beauty and danger and cruelty...


The battle lines have been drawn and Mari, an Earth Walker and Nik, a Companion, who were once from rival clans now find themselves fighting to save each other and their people from destruction.


Thaddeus betrayed his own people, killing Nik's father and destroying their entire clan. But he wants more. He wants the power he believes Mari has stolen from him and his people and he will do anything he must to get them back, even if it means destroying everything in his path. There is only way to stop Thaddeus, but it means a harrowing journey for Mari and Nik into the heart of darkness. Meanwhile, Dead Eye becomes a willing vessel for the newly awakened god, Death. Death has plans of his own and he, too, will use whatever and whomever he must, including the mad Thaddeus.

    September 1, 2017

    Gr 10 Up-Mari, Moon Woman to her Earth Clan, and Nik, now the Sun Priest of the Tree Tribes, have joined forces after devastating disease and catastrophic fire decimate Nik's home. Meanwhile, in the city of the Skin Stealers, Dead Eye is possessed and ultimately overthrown by the purely evil God of Death, while Dead Eye's blind lover, Dove, plots her escape. In this massive tome, Cast loses much of the forward momentum of Moon Chosen, while doing little to add to the world-building she started so successfully in the previous volume. The Earth Walkers spend more than 250 pages deciding if they're willing to accept members of the Tribes into their new Pack, and that they like dogs (in fact, all the dog kissing gets to be just a bit cloying); the only action-aside from Nik and Mari's-is on the side of the bad guys, and even that is thin. However, fans of the first book will probably be willing to forgive all that just to see how the romance turns out. Not a stand-alone, the novel's sexual content, graphic language, and scenes of rape render it more appropriate for and older audience. VERDICT Buy only where the first volume is popular.-Elizabeth Friend, Wester Middle School, TX

    The second in the Tales of a New World series picks up only hours after Moon Chosen (2016) left off.With fire still ravaging the City in the Trees, 23-year-old Nik and 18-year-old Mari, along with a band of wounded canine and human companions, reluctantly agree to flee to the home of Mari's Earth Walker clan to heal and regroup. What they didn't expect was that more than their superficial cuts and burns would be mended. Despite centuries of prejudice, hatred, and fear that make it difficult for the two clans to trust one another, they quickly find strength in their differences and vow to unite and build a better, new world together, with Nik and Mari as their guides. Unfortunately, others, namely the leader of the Skin Stealers, have a much darker and more dangerous vision for the future. Though at times a bit heavy-handed, Nik and Mari's aspiration to build a community founded on the principle of inclusion is both noble and refreshing. The members of this new clan explore their differences and feelings gently and respectfully, and readers will likely enjoy the hints of new romances budding between characters. This bears an unsettling and disturbingly sharp contrast to the Skin Stealer world, which some may find difficult to stomach, particularly with regard to the sexual violence visited on the eyeless, 16-year-old Dove. Though Nik and Mari are pale-skinned, racial categories do not seem to exist in this world.Another hefty tome for Cast's fans. (Fiction. 14-adult)
