Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From childhood, Aerin had been haunted by the story of her mother - a "witchwoman" who enspelled the king and then died in childbirth, leaving behind a newborn daughter and an heirless land. Left to her own devices, Aerin grew up wild, doing her best to live up to her reputation as the disappointment of the realm. But little did the young princess know the long-dormant powers of her mother would wield their own destiny, and leave Aerin with a duty to her scornful homeland that she couldn't refuse.

Synopsis:

Aerin, with the guidance of the wizard Luthe and the help of the Blue Sword, wins the birthright due her as the daughter of the Damarian king and a witchwoman of the mysterious, demon-haunted North.

Synopsis:

Although she is the daughter of Damar's king, Aerin has never been accepted as full royalty. People whisper the story of her mother, the witchwoman, who allegedly cast a spell on the king so he would marry her - and then died of despair when their first child was a girl. But no one knows Aerin's destiny. From dragon-killer to defender of Damar, she will become a true hero, and wield the power of the Blue Sword, Gonturan.
