- 'The Village of Bones: Sabalah's Tale' -
A perilous journey, a stunning prophecy, a dangerous love that could destroy humankind: In 4386 B.C., a young priestess named Sabalah conceives a magical child with a mysterious stranger named Arash. Sabalah names the child Marrah. This child will save the Goddess-worshiping people of Europe from marauding nomad invaders called Beastmen, but only if her mother can keep her alive long enough to grow up. Warned by the Goddess in a vision of the coming invasion, Sabalah flees west with Arash to save her baby daughter, only to discover that she is running into the arms of her worst enemies. In the dark forests of northern Europe, other human-like species left over from the Ice Age still exist.

"Mary Mackey’s 'The Village of Bones' gives us the vivid adventures of 'The Clan of the Cave Bear,' the magic of 'The Mists of Avalon' and 'Lord of the Rings,' and the beauty of 'Avatar.' Filled with the belief that love drives out fear, it contains stunning twists that will leave you wanting more."
--Dorothy Hearst, author of the 'Wolf Chronicles'
