From the pen of Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the beloved and bestselling Discworld fantasy series, comes an epic adventure of survival that mixes hope, humor, and humanity.

When a giant wave destroys his village, Mau is the only one left. Daphne—a traveler from the other side of the globe—is the sole survivor of a shipwreck. Separated by language and customs, the two are united by catastrophe. Slowly, they are joined by other refugees. And as they struggle to protect the small band, Mau and Daphne defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down.

Sir Terry also received a prestigious Printz Honor from the American Library Association for his novel Dodger.

While slightly odd in terms of narrative (very much one thing happens after another) The heart, myth, and classic Pratchett craftsmanship comes through in each and every word, and once again Stephen Briggs hits a home run.

This is the first non-discworld book by Terry Pratchett that I have read. Excellent. I didn't want it to end.
