Pub. Date:
The prospect of freedom is weighted with danger in this tale of high adventure, the third book in the Tales of the Kingdom series from Newbery Medalist Cynthia Voigt. Oriel has always stood out as someone who would not bend. No matter how much he has had to endure, the Damall's cruelty cannot corrupt him. Griff, a boy who has watched and admired Oriel, is the opposite. He has learned to keep out of sight, to bow in the face of force. Yet the two became friends, and together they escaped from the terrors of the island and take with them the Damall's most prized relic--the beryl, a green gemstone engraved with a falcon, its wings unfolding. But as they seek a new life, it's not as easy as they'd hoped, for ahead lie raiding Wolfers, rival armies, and unspeakable dangers... Previously published as Wings of a Falcon , this classic tale features a new look and a new title.
