Clavis - The Bronze Age epic

Clavis, a young girl hunted and dispossessed, forced from her home and on a perilous journey to the barbaric lands in the far North. Cursed with a great secret and the Gift of Backsight, she must fend for herself among druids, witches, barbarians and cannibals, while avoiding those involved with a pretence to the throne.


History meets fantasy and archaeology meets magic in the harshly realistic Bronze Age CLAVIS.

"I have watched you for several summers now, little Clavis; I have watched you more closely than you can imagine. You carry a secret that I had believed was mine alone. Many nights have I spent trying to decide your fate, and am glad I waited. Because I know you can hold your tongue I have brought you here.

As of yesterday, you are a non-person as are the rest in that blasted list you heard cried. You have lost the right to a home and land; you have lost the right to work and marry.

I’m trying to save your life.

Here is my deal. I will save your life and you will save my family, my reputation, my Province, and the Kte. I want you to travel to Oksat.”

Braveheart meets Lord of the Rings
Imagine a female Braveheart intent upon a multi-faceted quest of self-discovery, family preservation, honor and the emancipation of her homeland across a barbaric landscape filled with characters ruthless and savage; comical and unique. Containing a taste of the fantastical and magical, Edward O' Toole's "Clavis" is a delightful, entertaining and educational read that keeps you turning the pages. Wonderfully written, you become fully immersed and mesmerized within the story as the 13-year-old heroine, Clavis, must come-of-age in an ancient land ruled by the sword and the axe where women are supposed to know their place and never question it. Clavis, armed with the ability to see the ancient past and the nearing future, breaks all the rules to free her land from the clutches of a corrupt political system.

Clavis is a fun read, sure to delight those looking for a good, fast-paced story set in a unique setting and time.
