When their uncle Sylvan pays an unexpected visit, bringing with him a terrible warning, young water voles Kale and Strife have no idea that their world is about to change for ever.
Soon they’ll be running for their lives as a new danger threatens to destroy everything and everyone they care about.
Kale and Strife will need all their strength and courage to survive their journey into the unknown. But the shadows are full of enemies, and still more surprises lie in wait . . . will they ever make it back home again?
This thrilling follow-up to the highly-acclaimed novel, The River Singers, will transport readers into a vivid world of riverbank creatures, where excitement and danger are never far away. Now available in a beautiful paperback edition, containing the original beautiful black and white illustrations by Simon Mendez.
