Warrior. Traitor. Saviour.
There are many elements to McCulloch’s hero, Raim. This is a theme which also runs through the plotline of the novel, available in the Lower School Library, and is the key to its success. Set in a nomadic desert world, where promises are sacred and bound together with magic, the book is split into three sections. Each new section builds on what the reader already knows and develops the plotline further. It feels, therefore, that the audience is learning alongside Raim and this entices you further into the book to the point that it feels you are taking the journey with him.
