The fourth instalment in the buccaneering Five Realms of Podkin One-Ear series, Uki and the Outcasts introduces compelling new characters and mysterious, pulse-quickening storylines into a wonderfully rendered fantasy world.
'EXCELLENT,' says the bard. 'It's probably a good idea for you to know about him.' 'Wait . . . him? Who's him?' said Rue. 'Uki,' says the bard. 'Uki Patchwork. The Magpie Demon. Uki of the Two Furs.'
From the Ice Wastes beyond the Cinder Wall emerges an unlikely hero. Rejected by his village and left to die, young Uki is given life and unique powers by a long-buried spirit from the time of the Ancients . . . and a life or death mission. Joined by two other outcasts - a trained assassin who refuses to kill people and a very short rabbit who rides the fastest jerboa on the plains - Uki must capture Valkus, the Spirit of War, before rabbitkind destroys itself in conflict.
A thrilling new book set in the Five Realms of Podkin One-Ear.

A fabulous story based in the world of Podkin. Couldn't bear to put the book down. Wonderful illustrations throughout. Can't wait until my children are old enough for me to read it to them!
