A viral Time of the Eagle Author Sherryl Jordan is Ebook Award winning New Zealand author Sherryl Jordan began her writing career with picture books, but soon moved on to novels for older readers Her breakthrough came with Rocco, published in the United States as A Time of Darkness, and since that time she has gone on to pen many titles for young adult and juvenile readers that have been published both in her native New Zealand and throughout the world The recipient of a 1993 fellowship to the prestigious writing program at the University of Iowa, Jordan used her time in the United States to speak widely at schools and conferences about her books, which blend fantasy with bits of science fiction and romantic realism All my young adult novels have been gifts, she noted in the St James Guide to Children s Writers I don t think them up They hit me over the head when I least expect them overwhelm me with impressions, sights, and sounds of their new worlds enchant me with their characters and dare me to write them.. I was the first child born to a hunted people, in the first winter of their flight My earliest memory is of being carried on my mother s hip across barren plains, with wild mountains all around, and of rough tents made of skins stretched across sticks planted in the dust, of hunger and thirst and a feeling I did not like or understand, but which I know now was the fear thI was the first child born to a hunted people, in the first winter of their flight My earliest memory is of being carried on my mother s hip across barren plains, with wild mountains all around, and of rough tents made of skins stretched across sticks planted in the dust, of hunger and thirst and a feeling I did not like or understand, but which I know now was the fear that shadowed my people, as a wolf shadows a wounded deer Avala dreams of becoming a healer, but her dreams are not the same as her destiny Hers is a mighty but lonely fate, for she is the chosen one the one who will bring the Time of the Eagle, when the hunted will become the hunters and win back their freedom It is a destiny that requires the spirit of a warrior and the heart of a healer But does Avala have the courage to set the Eagle on its flight In this epic story about a girl born to greatness, Sherryl Jordan tells an unforgettable tale of destiny, betrayal, and the power of love and faith.. Popular Book Time of the Eagle Reviewed by Carrie Spellman for TeensReadToo.comAvala is a member of the dwindling race of the Shivali. Avala is special -- her mother, Ashila, is the tribe's healer and her father, Gabriel, was Navoran, a member of an enemy tribe who became a great ally in times of trouble. The Navoran still conquer lands, and the Shinali have become nomads, but there are still a few Navoran who honor Avala's father, and are willing to deal gently with Shinali. The true reason that Avala is held in high regard is due to a prophecy that points to her as the chosen one, the one who will finish what her father began and will bring about the Time of the Eagle. Avala is unsure that she is capable of fulfilling such a high calling. What is she to do? And how? What if she fails? Part of her hopes that the prophecy was wrong, and meant for someone else. She doesn't want to lead an army, much less know how to do so. She wants to be a healer alongside her mother. But, she must venture out to find the future that awaits her and her people. The path is unknown even to Avala. She will have to find her own way through the lands and peoples she encounters. Most importantly, she'll have to trust in herself, even in her most lost and confused moments. The fate of the Shinali depends upon her. This is an amazing book! Completely engrossing, you are lost in Avala's world long after the story ends. Avala is very strong, but still frightened and unsure at times. The lands she travels to are both foreign and familiar. And the things she sees and learns! This is an epic book in the sense that it covers a large expanse of time, and it does so incredibly well. You really feel and live and experience so much right along with her. It's also very interesting to me that this could be a time in the future, or one in the past. There seems to be a wealth of story both before and after the time frame that this book covers. I truly hope I get to know more of this place and these people!
