AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the peasant village of Obrel, Zuven, a young foundling, wants nothing more than to devote her life to religious service. But there's a mystery to Zuven's past. Something that others have taken great lengths to keep from her . . .

'Far from Obrel, the noblewoman Yelela defies her family by training to become a soldier. She enrols in a military school in the capital, and there uncovers the Righteous Arrow, a secret society plotting to overthrow the king.

'Haga, champion swordsman and the son of a powerful baron, has dedicated his life to the Righteous Arrow's cause. But when Zuven runs away, he despairs of ever seeing the plans fulfilled.

'As their Journeys diverge and intertwine, as battles are fought and corruptions are exposed, each will learn that destiny is a compelling force . . . but not even destiny can overcome the individual.'
