Them : A People Enslaved, a Promised Hope, a Legendary Rescuer
A compelling fantasy adventure set in the not-too- distant future in a place that is not-too-different from our own (similar in this respect to some titles by Joan Aiken or Philip Pullman). The ordinary people are in the thrall of Them, a ruthlessly powerful group who have denied the use of technology to others for several generations. However, rumours abound of a Prince who will bring freedom to the people and help them to overcome their oppressors. This gripping adventure tells of the quest to find him - which includes action-packed chases, encounters with creatures of myth and legend, and mental and physical conflicts - with a surprising twist at the end. The powerful story has timeless themes which will resonate with many readers. 'Fay Sampson is a writer of great invention and power.' - Books for Keeps
