AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Blaze Halfbreed doesn't like Gorthan Spit, but she's being paid to find an enslaved Cirkasian woman. A woman needed by the Keepers to further their political ambitions. When Blaze sees dunmagic running over the floor in the taproom of The Drunken Plaice, she knows trouble is not far away. Could it be in the form of the three tall, very handsome men at other tables? Just what is their business here? Her search for the Cirkasian takes Blaze deep into Gorthan Spit, and she is horrified to unravel a threat to all the Isles of Glor...and a more immediate threat to her own life. Could the key to it all lie with an ancient legend of vanished islands? A sensational and gripping new fantasy series, introducing a fabulous new heroine, and weaving together elements of fairytale and sword and sorcery.' (Source: Publisher website)
