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.

Review quote

Praise for "Rifkind's Challenge""What a delight to see Rifkind again! Her return is particularly attractive...she now shows the maturity that only experience can bring."--David Drake "A major star of fantasy revisits her foundational world--this is an anticipated event."--C.J. Cherryh "Lynn Abbey has been spinning wonderful yarns for years and I have yet to be disappointed by anything with her name on it. Her sense of place, lively characters, and deft narration are a guarantee of a great read."--Raymond E. Feist ""Rifkind's Challenge" has cool people dealing with interesting problems, and all of the elements of an adventure yarn, with the whole blended in just the proportions I like."--Steve Brust
