Gods And Warriors
by Michelle Paver
3,500 years ago the world was a dangerous and magical place. Gods and prophecies could make a big difference in your life.  Hylas is a goat herd and considered an outsider by the villagers.  He is being hunted by powerful warriors who want him dead.  They may have already captured his sister.  Hylas is forced to flee and find refuge from the warriors.  A dying stranger gives Hylas a valuable bronze dagger to help him survive his troubles.  While on the run, Hylas is going to need all his skills and wits to survive and find his sister.  He also wants to find out why those warriors are trying to kill him.  It’s a long journey, but Hylas is ready.
