The Taniwha's Tear (Aotearoa #2)
In The Bone Tiki, David Hair began a cycle of compelling action-packed fantasy novels, steeped in the mythology and history of New Zealand. The spine-chilling adventure continues in The Taniwha's Tear. Matiu Douglas has promised to help the storyteller's daughter, but there are a few problems. The daughter is dead - she's been petrified in stone for centuries. And she's no longer human - she's a taniwha. When Matiu Douglas and his friends defeated Puarata, the tohunga makutu, they thought they'd won the war. Instead they started one. Now his warlocks are fighting for supremacy in a violent struggle spreading across the magical land of Aotearoa and into our world. The outcome will be determined by the taniwha Mat has promised to save. But Mat is about to discover no-one can be trusted when your enemies have already mastered powers he has barely begun to learn. Can loyalty and friendship prevail over centuries-old evil?
