Ryker, a young peregrine falcon, is being given a hunting lesson by his father when they notice a flock of ravens attacking their family by the chalk cliffs they call home. They race back to help but Ryker is knocked unconscious in the battle. When he wakes, he realises his parents and partner are missing. As if this wasn't bad enough, he finds his unborn chicks are no longer in their nest! Ryker pushes thoughts of personal safety to one side and embarks on a journey of discovery. He must unite the oppressed birds in the forest so that they will rise up and help save his family from the evil gamekeeper and his enforcer, Dillon, a raven with a mean streak and foul temper. But Ryker is young and inexperienced in the ways of the world and he doesn't yet know who to trust... The Battle of Boxhill is an engaging children's story that will appeal to readers of all ages. Packed with drama, suspense and wonderful characters, it will delight, surprise and enthrall in equal measure.
