Return to the David Clement-Davies
Fire Bringer by David Clement-DaviesDescription: In a Scotland beset by Norse invaders, the deer-the Herla-are fighting their own war. A tyrannical new lord of the herd has ended the old way, the yearly play of antlers that ensured a change of leadership. At his command is a corps of young stags, scars on their brows and antlers sharpened for the kill, whose mission is complete dominion over the animal world. But Herla lore promises a hero-a fawn with a strange birthmark whose unique bond with all creatures, including man, will ignite an epic battle and free the Herla forever. Series:
