Reseña del editor
What do you do when you meet a tohunga makutu? You run. When reality dissolves and myths and legends come alive?You run faster. And when the dead come to life and blood debts have to be paid, will you have the courage to do what must be done? Matiu Douglas has a bone tiki he stole from a tangi. His father s important new client wants it. Badly. And he has some very nasty friends. When Mat is forced to flee for his life, an unexpected meeting with a girl called Pania sets his world spinning. Suddenly he s running through the bush with a girl-clown, a dog who is way too human, and a long-dead warrior. Fearful creatures from legend are rising up around him, and Mat faces a terrifying ordeal. And there is nowhere left to hide ...not even in another world. A breathtaking adventure set in two parallel New Zealands, from exciting new author David Hair.

TBT follows Mat, a young Mäori teenager who lives with his mildly corrupt lawyer dad, Tama. Normally Tama represents gang-leaders and drug dealers, however the latest client Mat meets is something else, a Mäori mystic shunned by his peers. Tama's client wants a bone tiki that Mat's aunty gave to him, and in order to thwart the creep Mat takes the thing and goes cross country.
TBT probably is best classified as young adult (it does follow a teenager) and the relationships are a bit cheesy and superficial, although in saying that some of the philosophical points are quite deep, and the mythological is simply awesome. As an adventure story Bone Tiki is unparalleled, even if some of the characters kinda drop out of the story...
The rest of the world must read this book lest they all get their knowledge of NZ from here: [...]
