Description

THE SACRIFICE is a futuristic novel set in the top of the North Island and the Pacific. Decades earlier, eruptions around the Pacific 'ring of fire', and consequent devastating tsunami, had annihilated Western civilization and technology, along with most of the population. Those who survive revert to hunter-gatherer mode, both in the absence of technology and in the belief that technology and even crop cultivation were the cause of the catastrophe. There is a return to a belief in elemental gods; some exploiting this as a means of social control. However, in the harsh new climate, and with ever-diminishing resources due to no cultivation or husbandry, youth are selected as The Chosen to travel into the unknown and save their people. One of these is Taka, a gifted dancer ...A futuristic novel set in the top of the North Island and the Pacific by an award-winning writer. Age: teenage/young adult
