Alaysha's story continues. She and Gael are on the run from Sarum with a posse of nearly helpless people to care for and one prisoner to watch over. As they head in to the burned lands and past those borders into a world where men are a liability and women keep the order, it begins to look as though Yenic may be dead after all. The trouble is can she keep the men with her safe from the hands of her father's people?
Atkinson's continuing path through Alaysha's world is one on which readers will gladly accompany her.
