AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A world in which some girls are marked at birth with the Wyrding sign. The Warlord’s sons took the narrator captive in a raid and call her Sun-Fire because she won’t give them her true name. Now they want to force her unborn child to carry the dead Warlord’s soul, and the ancient Wyrding Woman of the Warlord’s clan is too powerful for her to overcome. She vows to resist. Yet she can’t resist the lure of the knowledge that the old woman offers her' (Lois Tilton, Locus Online).
