From the acclaimed author of the Malazan series comes Steven Erikson's This River Awakens.
In the spring of 1971, Owen Brand and his family move to the riverside town of Middlecross in a renewed attempt to escape poverty. For twelve-year-old Owen, it's the opportunity for a new life and an end to his family's isolation. He quickly falls in with a gang of three local boys and forms a strong bond with Jennifer, the rebellious daughter of a violent, alcoholic father. As summer brings release from school, two figures preside over the boys' activities: Walter Gribbs, a benign old watchman at the yacht club, and Hodgson Fisk, a vindictive farmer tormented by his past. Then the boys stumble on a body washed up on the riverbank?a discovery whose reverberations will result, as the year comes full circle, in a cataclysm that envelops them all?.
Archaeologist and anthropologist STEVEN ERIKSON's debut fantasy novel, Gardens of the Moon, was short-listed for the World Fantasy Award and introduced fantasy readers to his epic Malazan Book of the Fallen sequence, which has been hailed ?a masterwork of the imagination.? This River Awakens was his first novel, and originally published under the name Steve Lundin. He lives in Cornwall, England.
