The Life and Time of Lonny QuickeAdventure, New Books, Our Favourites
Lonny is a lifeling. He has the power to heal any living creature and bring it back from the dead. But he pays a price for this gift – by lengthening the creature’s life, he shortens his own.
So Lonny has to be careful, has to stay hidden in the forest. Because if people knew what he could do, Lonny would be left with no life at all… A brilliant novel from the author of The Middler about family, secrets and a terrible power.
After a brave fight, he is invited to leave the ‘twoleg’ world and join Thunderclan, one of four cat tribes, to train as a warrior. Rusty becomes Firepaw and learns laws of the wild – hunting and fighting to protect the clan’s survival. When the fearsome Shadowclan threaten Thunderclan’s territory his warrior skills are put to the test.
But how can he protect the clan when he suspects their own deputy of trechery?
