About the Author
Joseph Elliott is a British writer and actor known for his work in children's television. His commitment to serving children with special needs was instilled at a young age: his mother is a teacher trained in special needs education, and his parents provided respite foster care for children with additional needs. He has worked at a recreational center for children with learning disabilities and as a teaching assistant at Westminster Special Schools. The heroine of this trilogy was inspired by the many incredible children he has worked with, especially those with Down syndrome. Joseph Elliott lives in London.
Reviews
The sequel to The Good Hawk (2020) sends characters both familiar and new into the wider world surrounding its fantasy version of medieval Skye...Major and minor characters alike are fully rounded; Jaime in particular struggles with his newfound fascination for dark magic and a same-sex attraction that is not accepted in his culture. The worldbuilding is rich, integrating various magical systems into the landscapes and cultures of diverse countries and clans. The narrative gallops along, with hefty doses of humor, tenderness, and violence, until the storylines meet on a final page that will leave readers desperate for more. A superlative middle volume, adding depth and scope without sacrificing clarity or theme.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Picking up where The Good Hawk left off, Agatha, Jaime, and Clann-a-Tuath find themselves cohabiting unhappily in a different Skye Island clan's enclave, their hosts becoming less gracious by the day...This trilogy would go over well with fans of Maggie Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races. The first book is required to be able to follow the plot of the second. Didn't buy the first book? Now's the time to grab both.
