Set in the ancient Stone Age village of Skara Brae in Orkney, the author was inspired to write the tale after a visit to the site.

Kali and Brockan are in trouble.

They have been using their stone axes to chip limpets off the rocks, but they've gone too far out and find themselves trapped by the tides.

Then, an unexpected rescuer appears, a strange boy in a strange boat, carrying a strangely sharp axe of a type they have never seen before. Conflict arises as the village of Skara must decide what to do with the new ideas and practices that the boy brings.

As a deadly storm threatens, the very survival of the village is in doubt.

The daily life, landscape and rituals of Skara have been meticulously researched, and are brought to life in striking, compelling detail.
