This is the first book in an epic fantasy series about a girl who collides with her destiny. Karigan G’ladeon is on the run from disgrace when she must take over the mission of a mortally wounded courier.
Karigan becomes embroiled in royal intrigue, an epic quest to save the kingdom, and political machinations she would like to avoid at all costs. She is naive and surly, frustrating and endearing. Her scrapes are always just near enough, and her personal growth happens despite her stalwart resistance to it.
