Vendettaby Chris Humphreys
Synopses & Reviews
Book I of the Runestone Saga ends with a terrifying reversal. The grandfather who showed Sky how to use the power of the runes to travel back in time, revealed his secret plans—which turn out to involve murder and possession. Sky must now find a way to fight his powerful teacher—for his cousin's very soul.
And so he travels to Corsica, home of his other forbearers, hoping to find some knowledge, some power. The blood feud of vendetta still runs hot in Sky's family, as does the supernatural power of the MazzeriÑthe Corsican dream hunters of death. Sky must again travel back through time, inhabiting the life of Tza, a fierce girl from the 1500s. As he sinks into Tza's mind, Sky wondersÑare all of his ancestors murderers?
Vendetta is a heady, exciting blend of supernatural possibility and historical truth that will leave readers gasping for the final installment of the trilogy.

After realizing the enormity of his Norwegian grandfather's betrayal, fifteen-year-old Sky leaves England to follow his visions to Corsica, the homeland of his other ancestors, hoping to find some ways to defeat his grandfather's powers and restore his cousin Kristin's free will.
Traveling back in time in the hopes of finding ancestors with the knowledge and power he will need to fight his evil grandfather, Sky arrives in the 1500s to discover frightening truths about his family's dark history. Reprint.
SKY’S GRANDFATHER SIGURD taught Sky how to use the ancient Norse magic of the runes to travel through time, to live as a Viking ancestor, to understand the secrets whispering in his blood . . . But knowledge comes at a cost. Sigurd has stolen Kristin’s life, possessed her, body and soul. In a terrifying reversal, Sky’s teacher, his blood, has become the enemy.
Determined to find a way to free Kristin, Sky travels to Corsica where he finds the Mazzeri—the Dream Hunters—who leave their bodies at night to stalk their prey. Sky can’t understand how this horror can help him . . . until he journeys back in time again and becomes another ancestor who does have an answer for him, one that might yet save Kristin. But it comes with the awakening of a vicious vendetta. And the price of knowledge, as always, will be paid in blood.
