Banished from his tribe, twelve-year-old Dominique's quest continues as he reaches the great port city of Carnillo. Civil strife and rumours of imminent invasion bring suspicion upon all who walk the streets. Arrested and imprisoned, Dominique receives help from an unexpected ally and is drawn into a confusing conspiracy of constantly shifting alliances. As he attempts to unravel the truth behind the strange web of conflicting stories about his father, Dominique learns there is a greater challenge before him. It will require all of his inner resources to help mend the rift that tore his people asunder centuries earlier. Second in the Estorian Chronicles trilogy, The Battle for Carnillo continues to explore the nature of story and the power wielded by those who control information. Inspired by the myths, legends, and folktales of cultures from around the world, Tate weaves an exciting tale of adventure as one young boy struggles to understand the beliefs, prejudices, and shortcomings of his own people.
