Product Description

** SHORT-LISTED FOR THE TEXT PRIZE **
** QUARTERFINALIST IN THE AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL CONTEST **

Deep under the desert, Aari and Theo are twelve-year-old slaves working in the diamond mines of the Great God King Allure. Aari is headstrong and brave; Theo is not. When Aari is caught questioning the King's divinity, they are both sentenced to work in the Pits, the hellish bowels of the mines where no slave lives for long.

Aari knows that their only chance of survival is to escape. He crafts a daring plan to flee the mines and rescue Theo from certain death, only to learn that the world outside the mines is just as dangerous. Pursued by bounty hunters and in danger of enlistment by the fanatical rebel army Outrage, Aari leads Theo on a perilous journey to find his family in the north, where they defy all odds and learn what it truly means to be brothers.

"'The Brothers of Turoc' was an unexpectedly engaging and easy read. Timmis tells this swiftly-paced high fantasy from the alternating perspectives of the two protagonists, and does an excellent job of giving voice to each without ever favouring one over the other. As a reader one is equally attached to and invested in the progress of cautious, innocent Theo as to vivacious, fiery Aari, and Timmis moves us between their viewpoints fluidly. The length and the young characters would enable a younger audience to engage with this book, but this was also accessible and enjoyable for an adult. The writing style is light and easy; the dialogue is realistic; the plot is complex enough to maintain interest; there are few enough characters to ensure emotional investment is not spread too thinly; and the social justice issues brought up are brushed upon in an artful manner that is light enough to keep a reader from discomfort while strongly enough that they are given appropriate credibility."
- Shayla Morgansen, Australian Author of the Elm Stone Saga series.
