Hunting by Stars (a Marrow Thieves Novel)
Hunting by Stars (a Marrow Thieves Novel) | Cherie Dimaline
6 posts | 3 read | 5 to read
From the acclaimed author of The Marrow Thieves comes a thrilling new story about hope and survival that New York Times bestselling author Angeline Boulley called "a revelatory must-read" Years ago, when plagues and natural disasters killed millions of people, much of the world stopped dreaming. Without dreams, people are haunted, sick, mad, unable to rebuild. The government soon finds that the Indigenous people of North America have retained their dreams, an ability rumored to be housed in the very marrow of their bones. Soon, residential schools pop up--or are re-opened--across the land to bring in the dreamers and harvest their dreams. Seventeen-year-old French lost his family to these schools and has spent the years since heading north with his new found family: a group of other dreamers, who, like him, are trying to build and thrive as a community. But then French wakes up in a pitch-black room, locked in and alone for the first time in years, and he knows immediately where he is--and what it will take to escape. Meanwhile, out in the world, his found family searches for him and dodges new dangers--school Recruiters, a blood cult, even the land itself. When their paths finally collide, French must decide how far he is willing to go--and how many loved ones is he willing to betray--in order to survive. This engrossing, action-packed, deftly-drawn novel expands on the world of Cherie Dimaline's award-winning The Marrow Thieves, and it will haunt readers long after they've turned the final page.

Littens, when I tell you I‘ve been on autopilot—I did not realize this was the sequel. I mean I knew it, but then stuff. I read it like it was the first. And it holds! But this is the danger of reading for work rather than pleasure. I‘m no factory reader.

My #BookSpin #DoubleSpin and #BookSpinBingo for May. Of course, I made my list before the Women's Prize Shortlist was announced and ALL the holds came in and I went out for #IndependentBookstoreDay, so I think I'll be making use of the free and library spots the most 🤣🤣. Hopefully I'll at least get to the tagged as well 🤷‍♀️

One of the best sequels I have ever read. (The Marrow Thieves is the first of the series)

Love, family, survival, culture, history, and heartbreak, and hope all come together in this story set in the future with the past history of residential schools and Indian boarding schools as the backdrop. Possibly the best book I read this year and one of the best sequels I have ever read.

AND, that acknowledgment, wow.

Teen readers clamoured for a sequel & here it is, in the dystopian future as full of danger for Indigenous people as it was in The Marrow Thieves. Frenchie is stolen by Recruiters & must use his wits to survive incarceration & dehumanizing tactics. Meanwhile, his chosen family face such horrors as a vampire cult & evil-white-ladies vigilantes. Two excellent narrators read the #audiobook: Michelle St John & Meegwun Fairbrother. #YA

We ran, but not away. We were—we are—running toward. Because running only works when you are running towards something. We are running toward community, toward safety, toward a future centred around what we know and understand to be the good life.

… he relaxed on the couch with a comic about an awkward redheaded boy with two attractive girls inexplicably fawning all over him.
