Gr 9 Up
Having escaped his grandfather Sigurd's nefarious plans in The Fetch (Knopf, 2006), Sky March is now on a quest of his own. Utilizing the ancient Norse magic of runes, Sigurd has possessed Sky's cousin Kristen's body, and the boy is too unskilled to fight his more powerful ancestor. The only thing to do is to travel to Corsica, where the other side of his family is from, and learn something Sigurd doesn't know. Once there, Sky finds himself trapped in a centuries-old blood feud. His great-aunt has promised that she will teach him how to release his "Fetch," or soul, but only if he fulfills his destiny by participating in the family's vendetta. Torn between his need for information and disgust with killing, Sky finds the answers he seeks only when he's willing to travel yet again into the past. Though best read in tandem with its predecessor, this book is a consistently exciting combination of Corsican legend and contemporary fantasy.
