The Click of a Pebble
‘You must promise never to speak out about your heritage,’ his grandmother warned, ‘because people fear anything different.’
‘Fear us!’ Yöst laughed in protest. ‘We are too few to fear.’
‘It makes no difference. We are carinatae, shape shifters, magical creatures …’
Only if Yöst keeps the supernatural powers of his family hidden will they remain safe from the witch hunt that has already killed the entire village, apart from two young children, Zande and Tatania. Unaware of their real nature, Ramon, a gypsy farmer who has fled the conflict in Spain, offers shelter on his farm in return for work and it is his son, Rico, the only boy in a house full of girls, who helps Yöst, through those first difficult years. As their relationship strengthens and deepens, Yöst begins to think the unthinkable, that he might stay and make a life there for himself and his siblings … forgetting that as carinatae, his date with destiny is approaching.
And with it … death!
