The Star-glassBook - 2003
Once again, they experience many natural wonders and encounter striking peoples--some welcoming and eager to help, others who are less than thrilled with the newcomers. Their quest for the fate of the elves bears fruit, although not in the manner they might have hoped. Tom's Starglass, acquired on his Kalifax journey, provides an important link to the past they are attempting to discover. Their journey culminates in a fight for their lives against a mysterious and bloodcurdling foe, a fight they won't all survive.
With his powerful sense of mythic structure, and his trademark use of language both challenging and delightful, Duncan Thornton has added a third tale to his lasting contribution to the world of Canadian fantasy literature.
Duncan Thornton is the author of three juvenile fantasy adventures: Kalifax, a finalist for the Governor-General's Award for Children's Literature, the Mr. Christie Book Award program; and two Manitoba Book Awards; Captain Jenny & the Sea of Wonders and The Star-Glass. He has also written radio drama, theatrical drama and several screenplays, in addition to his fiction and non-fiction prose.
