The prequel to this book is, ‘Those Who Run in the Sky’, the young adult, coming-of-age novel, written by Iqaluit-based Inuk author Aviaq Johnston. This is a continuation of the story of the young shaman named Piturniq or Pitu and in ‘Those Who Dwell Below’, Piturniq has returned to face the great forces within the world, listen, hear their messages and possibly survive. Piturniq is introduced to a place in the spirit world called Nagliktaujut Nunangat, where abused and neglected spirits are welcomed, loved and shown pity for their unloved life. Pitu has to try and understand the meaning of Tagaaq’s story through events that include Piturniq’s brother Atiq who is growing up and learns to hunt, Saima and Ijiraq’s relationship and meeting Ikuma, helping a starving village, Qajaarjuaq’s behaviour and the intrigues of those who dwell below. As a young shaman, Pitu also has to listen to the spirits and Owl. Yet the story does not end here and Pitu returns to the spirit world in a search for Nuliajuk that is life-changing. This story is full of detail making it a page-turner and ends with a cliff-hanger.
