The safe haven of the Noble Warriors has been demolished and the Nomana have disbanded. When a young boy preaching peace and joy mesmerizes all who come in contact with him, a large following grows quickly--one that soon includes Morning Star and the Wildman. Yet Seeker, who is obsessed with his increasingly perilous journey to kill the last savanter, finds his mission placing him at odds with this new leader. As loyalties and friendships and faith are tested, all three heroes must question: Who can be trusted? And what can be believed?

Our customer reviews
NOMAN is the finale to THE NOBLE WARRIORS trilogy. I would not suggest reading this book before you read the previous two. The novel brings a beautiful end to the story of Seeker, Jango, and Morning Star. The stories are very character-driven, and to fully grasp the depth and spirituality of the characters it is important to understand their past. The author writes the book by taking the reader into the actions of the main characters by alternating chapters. At times this did make it difficult to follow the story line, because there was a lack of consistency and flow throughout the story. This book is thought-provoking and contains symbolism and moral messages that can be directly associated with religion and spirituality. During NOMAN, the young people in the book are sent on their own individual quests to decide who they want to be and what is important to them in their lives. Even as Seeker faces the completion of his quest to kill the last of the Old Ones, he finds someone who is preaching joy and love - and he is forced to face the reality of his past decisions. Although it would be nice to see them use their powers all together, I liked the individual aspect of the teens learning to deal with life problems on their own.show moreby TeensReadToo
