Call Down Thunder

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Reve and his sister Mi live in a tumbledown village with an elderly fisherman, Tomas, who took them in when their father was killed and their mother disappeared. Reve spends his day fishing and looking after Tomas, as well as protecting Mi, who has unusual abilities: she falls into trances, hears voices and sees strange visions of the future. When Mi’s life is threatened, the siblings flee to the city in search of their mother, and find themselves lost in a squalid underworld where betrayal, violence and corruption lurk at every corner.

A thrilling and unusual teen read about life on the wrong side of the tracks, where family, loyalty and even truth are pushed to the limit and each day is a fight for survival.
