Book Information

Imprisoned by Abreha and forced to help plan Aksum’s invasion, Telemakos desperately tries to regain his freedom
Telemakos, descendent of British and Aksumite royalty, has been accused of treason by Abreha, ruler of Himyar, and imprisoned on the upper levels of his twelve-story palace. Not only is Telemakos forbidden to see his beloved younger sister, Athena, but he is also forced to reproduce Aksumite maps in order to help Abreha plan an invasion. Lacking any way to communicate with his family in faraway Aksum, Telemakos must use all of his subtle talents to regain his freedom.

“Wein’s precise and powerful prose brings the tale she began in [The] Lion Hunter to a fitting close. . . . Wein’s evocation of the desert, of the memory of torture, of the forged bond between a possibly autistic child and her older sibling and of Telemakos’s fierce intelligence and cunning, make this extremely riveting.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Wein pursues an ingenious plotline in this conclusion. . . . As she has done throughout the tales of Telemakos, she maintains a breathless suspense while developing a character of true weight and greatness.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A pitch-perfect resolution to a unique, epic journey into adulthood.” —The Horn Book
“Fans of the series . . . will be amply rewarded with twists and turns and secrets revealed.” —Voice of Youth Advocates
