The more I came to know of the world, the more I knew I knew it not.
He was a nameless orphan, marked for death by his masters for an unknown crime. Discovering his nameÂ— CrispinÂ—only intensified the mystery.Â Then Crispin met Bear, who helped him learn the secret of his full identity. And in BearÂ—the enormous, red-bearded juggler, sometime spy, and everyday philosopherÂ—Crispin also found a new father and a new world.
Now Crispin and Bear have set off to live their lives as free men. But they donâ€™t get far before their past catches up with them: Bear is being pursued by members of the secret brotherhood who believe he is an informer. When Bear is badly wounded, it is up to Crispin to make decisions about their futureÂ—where to go, whom to trust. Along the way they become entangled with an extraordinary range of people, each of whom affects Crispin and Bearâ€™s journey in unexpected ways.Â To find freedom and safety, they may have to travel to the edge of the worldÂ—even if it means confronting death itself.
In this riveting sequel to the Newbery-Award winning Crispin: The Cross of LeadÂ—the second book in a planned trilogyÂ—Avi explores themes of war, religion, and family as he continues the adventures of Crispin and Bear.
