Rider, a fourteen year old Wanderer, has found shelter among the dead willows, the haunted place of the Flatlands. He is suffering from the abuse of his tyrant father, but his connection to nature and the elements keep him sane. He has a special gift that allows him to run with the antelope and to communicate with the animals. When he helps a young woman escape from a group of deadly hunters, he discovers that the mysterious, hated Flyers still exist. Drawn by curiosity and instinct, Rider uncovers a serious plot lead by his father to murder innocent children and to go to war against the Flyers.

The writing was better for this book. I connected more with the Rider, the wanderer. Again the narrator changed to different characters but mostly stayed with Rider. I wasn't a huge fan of the villain narrative. Knowing what the villain was doing and thinking gave too much away when it could have been left a mystery longer. There was a cute budding romance, and the plot was intriguing. I'd be interested to read the next book in the series. Content Ratings: sexual content: none language: none violence: mild/moderate

In The Wanderers we meet Rider. He is the son of Thorn, the leader of the Wanderers. He seems to delight in abusing his son. Rider too was born with a special gift and his father was not. His father wanted to raise his son different than he was raised. He too had an abusive father. He perceives his son's gift as a weakness. Rider is able to communicate with the animals. After a public whipping, Rider runs away from home. This is all it takes for his father to decide he must be killed as a traitor. Rider helps a young girl named Net escape from those who are hunting her. She has in her possession her baby brother who was born with wings. She is looking for Mot to help her get her brother to the Rescue Flyers. Like the Flyers, the Wanderers have a law that demands the death of a child born with wings. Along the way Rider learns his father's right hand man Bear is not who he thought he was. Together they must help Rider become what he must, and unite with the brother he didn't know he had. A brother who is a Flyer. Together they must try to bring peace to their people and become One people like they had been before. This was such a great series. It is so full of lessons that are subtle enough you don't feel you are being preached at and yet the have resonated throughout history. We can look at all wars from our past and find people like Wardor and Thorn.
