Product description

Product Description

There are two ways of looking at Aissa's story. She's the miracle girl who escaped the raiders. Or she's the cursed child who called the Bull King's ship to the island.

The firstborn daughter of a priestess is cast out as a baby, and after raiders kill her adopted family, she is abandoned at the gates of the Great Hall, anonymous and mute. Called No-Name, the cursed child, she is raised a slave, and not until she is twelve does she learn her name is Aissa: the dragonfly.

Now every year the Bull King takes a tribute from the island: two thirteen-year-old children to brave the bloody bull dances in his royal court. None have ever returned - but for Aissa it is the only escape.

Aissa is resilient, resourceful, and fast - but to survive the bull ring, she will have to learn the mystery of her true nature.

A riveting, mythic Bronze Age adventure from award-winning author Wendy Orr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary 30 June 2016
By Jonathan Wild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A wonderful, imaginative recreation of the Minoan culture. The central character, Aissa, is brave and stalwart and suffers greatly, but through the problems always gleams hope and kindness. A fine adventure, beautifully written

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read 3 September 2016
By Katharine Harris - Published on Amazon.com
This book was very hard to put down. Beautifully written , the book carries you through Aissa's life, her childhood losses, suffering through cruelty , overcoming so many obstacles thrown her way. A wonderful strong young heroine , who's voice comes through beautifully in the open verse that Wendy Orr chooses to use for Aissa. There is excitement and joy and sadness in this story. A book for young adults that any age reader can truly enjoy. Another wonderful reading experience from a very gifted authour.
