Reviews - What do customers think about Outcasts Of Skagaray?

Allegorical fantasy about strength and faith  Apr 10, 2008
Outcasts of Skagaray by Andrew Clarke is a fantastical twist on the warrior cultures of Sparta and Troy. Tarran lives in a world where strength is valued over everything. Weakness should be destroyed, and even the showing of pity is a weakness. In Tarran's heart, he knows that this is wrong, and when a clan leader expects him to kill a wounded bear cub to prove his strength, Tarran flees the community and starts a life outside of the clan. As he takes in others cast out of the tribe for their weakness, the elders of the clan come to fear him and what he represents. They worship a god of death and violence, and they expect that god to destroy any sacrilege. Tarran's continued existence is a threat to their own. Clarke's book is well written story about the goodness that lives inside of us that makes us human. Without ever mentioning God or Jesus, he incorporates Christian faith into the story that seems like a recreation of Jeremiah chapter 5. The story starts out a bit slow, but once Tarran starts to form his own family, the story picks up and soon becomes hard to put down.
 
A gripping, original adventure  Jan 30, 2008
"Outcasts of Skagaray" is a fast-paced, exciting adventure of how love and courage and faith can overcome cruelty, fear and evil. Its powerful story and vivid cast of characters combine with a strong sense of a fully realised fantasy world, with echoes of Norse and Orkney myth and history. In the tradition of G.P. Taylor, Lewis and Tolkien, this is a gripping, original fantasy quest adventure. (Sophie Masson)
