Overview

Sal's life has been thrown into turmoil and he is on the run, from more than one pursuer, it appears. He is accompanied by his new-found friend Shilly and he's not entirely sure where he wants to go-but Shilly is. She wants to find her teacher Lodo's old teacher, the Mage Van Haasteren, which means they must head north to the Interior, where Sal's mother was born. The journey is over rugged, mountainous country on the Old Line and it's dangerous. The Sky Warden Shom Behenna is after them and they must risk all top reach the Divide and get across to the other side, not even knowing if the Stone Mages will help them.

The main theme of this second book in the trilogy was 'change and transition'. There is the physical journey from the Strand to the Interior where Williams explores the beach through to desert landscapes. He gently inserts Australian fauna into the mix the way you see bears and deer in other novels set nominally in American or European inspired landscapes.There is the transition from child to young adult. The main characters develop in the physical areas by going through the typical changes of getting menses and voice breaking. This just emphasises the emotional and psychological growth that occurs.The most interesting theme, though, that is examined is that of reputation. How it affects people by how they are perceived and how they think they are perceived. It examines to what lengths people will go to to ensure that their reputation is maintained. Williams uses his characters to tell stories to show the emphasis of what power reputation can have on people.I found this book very powerful and an enjoyable read. Sean Williams has a great talent of being able to immerse the reader in the world he has created.

A medium sized cave with a cool, sandy floor like all the other caves. There is a tree stump just outside the cave, where apprentices usualy eat and are stories, an thus the nick name Story Stump.
