Tommo in Blood Red Road

By Moira Young


Tommo is the sweet deaf orphan Ike Twelvetrees adopts in a roundabout way. Tommo doesn't communicate much, but he seems like the nicest guy in the world, and he develops a fast friendship with Emmi. As you might imagine, he's devastated when Ike is killed, but he is welcomed into the family by Saba, Emmi, and Lugh. We're sure we'll be seeing a lot more of this kid in the sequels.
