The Gods and their Machines by Oisín McGann. Includes a free teacher guide. Two worlds. Two different lives. Divided by hate and violence. Thrown together by chance. Chamus’s nightmare begins when he survives a massacre. Suicide-bombers from neighbouring Bartokhrin are terrorising his country, Altima. How do you fight someone who isn’t afraid of death? Across the border, Riadni is no ordinary Bartokhrin girl; she dresses like a boy, fights like a boy, spits and rides her horse like a boy. When the Hadram Cassal set up camp on her father’s land, she is drawn to these rebels who are prepared to fight — and to die — for their homeland. A crash-landing in Bartokhrin territory forces Chamus and Riadni together and they find themselves on the run, hunted by killers. Danger and death are closing in on them from all sides.
