A novel by

 
 
Excerpt from Children of the Wolf

All the same, it seemed a pity that the twins had decided to mark out the boundaries of the new camp with all the elaborate ritual that went to the founding of a city. If the place happened to be unlucky the knowledge that it had been consecrated would lead to endless delay before the newcomers cut their losses and abandoned it. As he stood among the throng on the hilltop, waiting for the ploughing to begin, Marcus ventured to grumble about this to the man standing beside him.

He was answered, as), he might have expected, by a reference to the wonderful omens which had encouraged the twins. Even to suggest that the new settlement might be unsuccessful seemed to his neighbour to be blasphemy. You ought not to utter such words out loud, he exclaimed angrily. A god might hear you.
