Leira's family flee to the island of Crete just before a huge volcanic eruption destroys their island and sends a tsunami to where they thought they had found safety.

The noise throws us from our beds. It’s too huge to be heard; it bombards us. It’s the sound of the end of the world. Leira is starting her initiation as a priestess when her world is turned upside down. A violent earthquake leaves her home in pieces. And the goddess hasn’t finished with the island yet. With her family, Leira flees across the sea to Crete, expecting sanctuary. But a volcanic eruption and tsunami throw the entire world into darkness. In the resulting chaos, Leira finds her noble-born privilege reduced to nothing; alone with her injured mother and elderly nurse, Leira’s only hope of survival is her own resourcefulness. A thrilling Bronze Age survival story from the award-winning author of Dragonfly Song.

'The sections in verse are particularly descriptive and lyrical. This reinforces the Greek atmosphere ... a beautiful and powerful story. I loved it!'
Jill Jemmett

'Some chapters written in verse make the more emotional plot lines sing. An eye-opening look at how difficult it is when one's status changes in life, and how attitude can shape outcome ... Beautiful writing and a fast-moving plot will give young historical fiction fans much to love.'
