In a desert world ruled by men, Rifkind has always been one apart. A chieftain's daughter, she learned to wield a sword while all other women were bound by tribal custom to children and the cooking fire. But when her clan was massacred, she set forth on a quest for her destiny in savage lands ruled by magic and the sword. For a while, she thought that she had found a home. She practiced the healing arts and raised a son. But now she has once again heard a personal call to arms, a call to leave the safety of her home. She will once again take up the way of the sword, the way of sorcery. And this time she is not alone.show more
