Content descriptions

General Note:
"A standalone from the Sky in the deep, following Halvard (a character from SKY) ten years later" -- author's answer to reader's question on Goodreads.
Summary, etc.:
Tova lives amongst the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue, but when two neighboring clans bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.
Tova lives among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. The sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. When two neighboring clans bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse. Tova casts the stones and forsees the destruction of the Svell-- and that her own path is interwoven with that of Halvard, the Nādhir chieftain. -- adapted from jacket

    Tova, a truthteller, is both feared and valued by her adopted people, the Svell, for her ability to see the future in cast rune stones. When war with the Nadhir is precipitated by the Svell, Tova comes into contact with their leader, Halvard, and both young people feel the pull of the connection between them. Faced with a choice between losing her life and sacrificing her honor, Tova makes a decision that has dramatic consequences for both clans. This companion novel to Sky in the Deep (2018) tells much the same story: two clans—this time the Nadhir (newly combined Riki and Aska clans from the earlier book) and the Svell—are engaged in conflict escalating to war, and a key figure presumed dead is actually alive and living with the enemy. Tova and Halvard share narration, and despite the books' similarities, Young draws readers in with descriptions of the Iceland-like setting and mythos, credible battle scenes, and touching moments of connection between family and friends. Tova's journey to the truth of her beginnings is compelling. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
