The Miscreant and The Master
It was supposed to be a death sentence. Cast out of her home in shame for her refusal to marry an old farmer, headstrong aspiring writer Ayko is determined to make her own way in the world as an independent woman. But in a land torn asunder by civil war, and a countryside dotted with faction troops, a young woman alone in the wilderness is easy pickings, even one as bright and witty as Ayko. When she is caught near a military settlement and taken for a spy, Ayko is faced with the biggest and most painful decision of her life. Deprived of her freedom by Q'un's famous Master Xang, a man who permits no disobedience from those in his care, Ayko realizes that her rebellion and subsequent exile have brought her to a world in which men command, and women are treated with a firm hand.
