What's Battlesong About

Publisher Summary

The thrilling conclusion to the Icebreaker trilogy, an acclaimed middle-grade fantasy-adventure from Lian Tanner Gwin is a Fetcher. With her papa and twin brother, Nat, she travels West Norn, bringing joy to its downtrodden people through song and story. But ever since Mama died, it’s been hard to keep the joy alive. Proud and defiant, Fetchers have always been hunted by the Devouts for preserving the old ways. So when devious Brother Poosk captures Papa, Gwin must rescue him—whatever the cost. Meanwhile, the Oyster’s crew and the Sunkers lay siege to the Citadel. But without their Sleeping Captain, can they ever win against the ruthless Devouts? Can Petrel, Fin, Sharkey, and Rain ever bring light back to such a dark world? Praise for Battlesong: “Tanner’s unparalleled world-building seamlessly weaves Gwin’s tale into a complex narrative told from multiple perspectives. The author provides just enough backstory to keep new readers engaged and the action moving toward a thrilling ending that unites characters from all three installments. . . . Masterly writing brings the stark landscape to life and reveals characters’ deepest emotions.” —School Library Journal “Nonstop action against a magical backdrop; this is a wonderful world to get lost in.” —Catherine Jinks, author of the Evil Genius trilogy Read the whole Icebreaker trilogy: Icebreaker Sunker’s Deep Battlesong
