The Ultimate Test of Courage Begins

"Seven hearts the journey make. Seven ways the hearts will break ..."

The witch Sheba's prophecy is like a riddle. A riddle Rowan must solve if he is to find out the secret of the Mountain and save his home. To the sturdy villagers of Rin, the boy Rowan is a timid weakling. The most disappointing child ever.

Yet, incredibly, it is his help they need when the stream that flows from the top of the Mountain dries up. Without its water, their precious bukshah herds will die, and Rin will be doomed.

The six strongest villagers must brave the unknown terrors of the Mountain to discover the answer to the riddle. And Rowan, the unwanted seventh member of the group, must go with them.

        Comments about Rowan of Rin:

        This series was the one that got my children into Emily Rodda. What I like about her writing is that the line between good and evil characters is not always clear cut for us or the characters themselves. They are challenged in how they see things and grow from being challenged. A simpler way into fantasy than Tolkien for under 12s.
