From the bestselling creator of the Lionboy Trilogy

Puffin
Paperback // Size : 129 x 198mm // Pages : 384

Zwölf Jahre alt ist Halo, als sie ihren Entführern entkommt und - als Junge verkleidet - ihre wahren Eltern sucht. Die Reise durch das Griechenland der Antike ist gefährlich. Nur mithilfe des jungen Kriegers Leonidas kann Halo dem sicheren Tod entkommen. Ahnt er, dass sie in Wahrheit ein Mädchen ist? Leonidas ist es auch, der ihr Zugang zum Orakel von Delphi verschafft. Der Weissagung folgend, trifft sie in Athen ihren Onkel, den Staatsmann Perikles, der sie für seinen verschollenen Neffen hält. Halos Odyssee scheint zu Ende zu sein, doch die größten Abenteuer liegen noch vor ihr … Eine fesselnde Fantasy-Geschichte, die die Welt der griechischen Sagen lebendig werden lässt.

Washed ashore as a baby in ancient Greece, Halo is discovered by a family of centaurs.
Although her true identity remains a mystery, she is loved as one of their own. But when Halo
is dragged away by fishermen, her wild adventure begins . . .

Halo soon realizes that if she is to survive then she must live in disguise - as a boy. A violent
war is threatening to erupt and Halo is at the mercy of the mighty Spartan warriors. And as she
battles to hide her secret, Halo never forgets her quest to find out who she is - and where she
really came from.

Kundenmeinungen
// Customer Review:

"Exciting adventure set in Ancient Greece, with interesting characters and plenty of action. My 10 year old son wolfed it down, but as it has a female heroine, it would appeal to girls or boys equally, including older ones. The authors avoid jumping into stereotypes about the different Greek city states, and I found it interesting to see the good and bad aspects of both Athens and Sparta. I'd recommend it."

"I bought this book for my 9 yr old daughter who has recently read all the Percy Jackson books. She read this in about 2 days and loved it."

'''Halo'' is a real awesome one from Zizou Corder! Once I''d started reading this book, I could hardly put it down. The story that goes around Ancient Greece really captured my heart. It seemed so real that I was starting to wonder, does centaurs really exist? FYI, I spent only two days to read this one. The other books were among the best too! So, Zizou Corder, I''m now officialy your No.1 fan!'
