Publisher Comments:

THE HEALING POWER OF MAGIC<P>It has been four years since the orphan boy Darian sought sanctuary with the mysterious Tayledras Hawkbrothers when his village of Errold's Grove was sacked and burned by barbarians.<P>Born a Valdemaran, but now steeped in the mystical ways of the Tayledras, it has become Darian's dream to be their emissary — forging an alliance and providing a diplomatic link with his own people.<P>Back in Errold's Grove, a young woman, Keisha Alder, has taken over the job formerly held by Darian's old teacher, Wizard Justyn. With no formal education, working with only the natural instincts of her inborn Healing Gift, she has devoted herself to the care of the people of her now bustling community. Yet with the heightened empathy of her Gift, and the inability to shield herself because of her lack of training, it is becoming harder and harder for Keisha to bear the strains of everyday life.<P>But when Darian returns to Errold's Grove with a small contingent of Hawkbrothers to warn the townsfolk that another tribe of barbarians is approaching their village and advises them to evacuate their homes, Keisha refuses to flee. As a Healer she knows she will be needed if there is blooshed, and her Gift dictates that she stay, even if it puts her life in jeopardy. Yet how can one small band of Hawkbrothers and two Valdemaran teenagers with partially trained Gifts stand against the destructive might of a barbarian horde?

Synopsis:

It has been four years since Darian saw his village sacked and burned by barbarians. Taking refuge with the Hawkbrothers, he soon finds his life's calling--as a Healing Adept. But even as he learns the mystical ways of this ancient race, Darian cannot escape the dangers threatening his future. Another tribe of barbarians is approaching. The time has come...to stand up and fight.
