Anna Falconer, February 23, 2015 (view all comments by Anna Falconer)
One part historical fiction, two parts self discovery, three parts 'I have a flipping awesome horse and I'm not afraid to use it', and four parts 'creepy one-eyed lady who lives alone in the forest'. Asa Coppermane is not ordinary child and her father, the clan's chieftain, declared it to everyone when she was born. But now her father has taken all of the strongest men on a foolhardy journey and everyone knows he's not coming back, not to mention that he left the clan hungry, small, diseased, and under the care of Jorgen the Skald. It seems that Asa is the only one who can see past his caring exterior and into the awful person that he is. But there are worse things going on. Asa's mother is too sick to move and Asa must discover how strong she is, and if that is strong enough to lead the clan. Along the way, she meets Wenda, a one-eyed woman who lives in the forest with two ravens. She doesn't tell Asa how she lost her eye, but gives her the promise that something equally precious must be given in order to save her clan.
