"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.
About the Author
Ambelin Kwaymullina loves reading sci-fi and fantasy books, and has wanted to write a novel since she was six years old. She comes from the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. When not writing or reading she teaches law, illustrates picture books and hangs out with her dogs. She has previously written a number of children's books, both alone and with other members of her family. The Tribe 1: The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf (2012) was her first novel.
My daughter encouraged me to read this series. I've now made an entire teaching resource for my students. Many avenues and contexts to extend children's thought processes.
Engaging Australian dystopian fiction
The second YA book in The Tribe series is as engaging as the first: 'The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf'. A stylish, fast paced dystopian thriller by a new Australian author with hints of The Dreamtime woven throughout. A clever page-turner with interesting and involving characters, a budding romance and a complex plot that I believe will appeal to readers of The Hunger Games. I look forward to reading the next book in this series when it is published.

The Disappearance of Ember Crow
This is a series that gets better as it goes - each idea is developed and the world-building is ON POINT. It's so nice to see Australian YA making a hit with novels like this, especially ones that connect with Indigenous heritage as well. If you want a post-apocalyptic trilogy with a unique twist unlike anything else out there, then this is for you. * Genie in a Book * If you liked the first book, you won't be disappointed in this one. If you haven 't read it, what are you waiting for? * The Great Raven * The world Kwaymullina has created is a detailed and very easy to visualise, it is a wonderful world that has more than enough differences from many dystopian stories to make it stand out from the pack. * The Kylie Verse *
