Description

Grinsa, a Weaver of diverse magical gifts, is in search of peace. He and his wife, Cresenne, leave the Forelands for the Southlands, where tribes of their Qirsi people live freely. They wish to rid themselves of the pervasive fear the ruling Eandi harbor for the Qirsi and the bitter memories of a Qirsi conspiracy that almost brought the Forelands to its knees. They yearn for a new beginning, a home to raise their child. But the Southlands has its own problems, including fresh scars from a bloody war between the Eandi and Qirsl.Once they arrive, Grinsa and his family make their way to the Qirsi settlement of the Fal'Boma, a powerful clan of fierce horseriding plains warriors. Their leader, himself a Weaver, is intrigued by Grinsa's powers. He holds the young family against their will and pits Grinsa against other Weavers who already contend for the right to succeed him. Wanting no part of the Fal'Borna or their conflicts, Grinsa struggles to win his freedom.But a larger problem looms: A plague is spreading across the Southlands. Qirsi villages are being destroyed, literally overnight, nearly all their residents killed in violent, fiery conflagrations.In a small Eandi village, Licaldi, an elderly recluse with a shrouded past, has suddenly disappeared. Thinking she might have died, Besh, a village elder, enters her home. She is gone, but there is evidence that may connect her to the Qirsi plague.As Besh begins to search for Licaldi, Grinsa, too, begins a search for the source of the plague, which threatens not only the Fal'Borna, but every Qirsi in the Southlands. In a bargain with the clan chief, Grinsa agrees that his success would mean freedom for him and his family. But if he fails ... everything he holds dear will be lost to him forever.show more
