About this title


Believing that the grooglemen have taken Leezie the weller, her young student Dan Henchard accompanies the strange hunter, Joshua, on a quest to rescue her. By the authors of Knight's Wyrd.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Dan Henchard, 13, has shown signs of weller's blood-an immunity to the plague that killed his mother and a talent for healing the sick-so he is given the task of tending the stranger who falls ill in his family's farmhouse. Joshua recovers; and when Dan goes off with Leezie Johnson, the village weller, on his first trial to a neighboring plague-stricken village, Joshua follows. Dan and Leezie find death and destruction from disease, but even more from the dreaded grooglemen, who steal the heads of plague victims and burn their villages. When the grooglemen kidnap Leezie, Joshua and Dan rescue her. Along the way, Dan learns some unexpected truths about Joshua. Compared to John Christopher's "Tripods" trilogy (S & S), in which three related novels allow for much greater character and plot development, this book about a post-apocalyptic world is a less detailed, but still successful, example of the genre. Dan and Joshua quickly become sympathetic and interesting characters on a desperate journey through a foreboding landscape. Some readers will guess who the grooglemen might be; others will find an unexpected and though-provoking surprise at the end.
