Description

Past, present, and future come to a head for Ashala and her friends in a heart-stopping, deeply satisfying conclusion to the Tribe series.

Georgie Spider has foretold the end of the world, and the only one who can stop it is Ashala Wolf. But Georgie has also foreseen Ashala’s death. As the world shifts around the Tribe, Ashala fights to protect those she loves from old enemies and new threats. And Georgie fights to save Ashala. Georgie Spider can see the future — but can she change it? In the third and final book of the thrilling Tribe trilogy, author Ambelin Kwaymullina draws inspiration from the people, lands, and history of her native Australia to deliver a powerful saga about respect for others and the earth.

Praise For The Foretelling of Georgie Spider: The Tribe Book 3

If the plot's complex, the theme resounding through this powerful trilogy couldn't be clearer: we have the power to choose love over hate and life over death, to forgive ourselves and others; either all life matters or none of it does.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Action and event dominate the story, but Kwaymullina develops the imagery and relationships established in earlier volumes to undergird all with a web of loyalty, compassion, and commitment to “connection” between beings— human, animal, and android. Transparent in ideals and political concepts, the book nevertheless sustains its own vivid world of a sensate forest, animal spirit beings, futuristic technology, and enduring love.
