We’d like to wish our Guest of Honour Ambelin Kwaymullina a very Happy Book Release Day!
The second installment in The Tribe series, The Disappearance of Ember Crow, hits all good bookshops today. Set in Western Australia, The Tribe books follow the the trials and tribulations of a group of “Illegals”, young people who found themselves with special abilities (including sleepwalkers, firestarters and rumblers) after an apocolyptic event called The Reckoning. Their powers are deeply connected to nature and of course the local authorities want to intern them for public safety.
The much anticipated second book, The Disappearance of Ember Crow continues the story of The Tribe:
“However this ends, you’re probably going to find out some things about me, and they re not nice things. But, Ash, even after you know, do you think you could remember the good? And whatever you end up discovering – try to think of me kindly. If you can.” Ember Crow is missing. To find her friend, Ashala Wolf must control her increasingly erratic and dangerous Sleepwalking ability and leave the Firstwood. But Ashala doesn t realise that Ember is harbouring terrible secrets and is trying to shield the Tribe and all Illegals from a devastating new threat – her own past. –Walker Books
We’re looking forward to reading what happens next to Ashala and The Tribe and can’t wait to hear her talk about it at Continuum in June!
