Leafensong: First Telling (Paperback)
In a post-apocalyptic world, a highly evolved tribe of banded squirrels has lived peacefully for years, without knowledge of the past.
Struck by lightning at birth and left with strange markings on their fur, orphans Kooper and his blind brother, Boggs, are seen as evil, or Ebyn. But Beka, the Healer, is on their side. With his ability to Sense the thoughts of others, Boggs is called by unknown voices to venture into the forest alone. Meanwhile, as the squirrels' long-held enemies, the pack rats, close in on Leafensong's borders the tribe readies for action.
Secrets abound and the Dark One lurks in the distance. Will Boggs leave the safety of his home and embark on an impossible journey? Can the squirrels solve the mysteries of the forest in time, or will Leafensong fall, and the tribe along with it?
