Battle for Carnillo is sure to please those who enjoy fantasy-adventure stories with medieval and magical overtones.
Banished from his tribe of nomadic storytellers, twelve-year-old Dominique's quest continues as he passes through the gates of the ancient city of Carnillo. Rumours of imminent invasion bring suspicion upon all who walk the streets, and the young Estorian is quickly caught up in the civil unrest that threatens at any moment to erupt into bloody conflict. Arrested and imprisoned, Dominique falls in with rebels plotting to overthrow Lord Emberto, the tyrannical and paranoid leader of the Carnillian people.
Dominique must balance his own survival with his desire to help these new friends, but in this time of shifting loyalties it is difficult to know who to trust. Wherever he goes he hears rumours of his missing father and prophetic myths about his kasyapa bird, Navina. He struggles to understand how these stories of the past will affect the future.
