A modern Hero’s Journey book recommendation: The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline.
I enjoy finding modern stories that follow the traditional Hero’s Journey stages. These books remind us of the universality and constancy of the Hero’s Journey path.
Dimaline’s book is about a dystopian future, with a strong environmental and spiritual message targeted for young adult readers. (That never stops this 65-year-old from reading any book.)
I especially enjoyed the author’s take on mentor roles that are clearly defined, powerful, yet fallible.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
