In The Lion Hunter, Telemakos--the half-British, half-Aksumite grandson of King Arthur--had been sent for his safety to stay with one of Aksum's former enemies. Now, Telemakos must bring all of his subtle talents to bear in order to regain his freedom, in this stunning conclusion to the Mark of Solomon duology.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wein concludes her Mark of Solomon duology, begun in The Lion Hunter (2007), with this equally absorbing title about Telemakos, grandson of King Arthur and heir to an ancient Ethiopian dynasty. Once again, the story's richly imagined historical setting and scholarly underpinnings add great depth to the suspenseful political drama. As before, though, it's Telemakos' transformation from boy into hero and his fierce familial loyalty and love that are most affecting. Though a glossary, a map, and a family tree will help teens unfamiliar with the first book, this one will appeal most to those who enjoyed Telemakos' previous adventures.--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2008 Booklist"
