Jameta anDennal is a quandary to all who know her. How can someone who is so pleasant and polite get away with doing the things she does?
Jameta isn’t sure herself. One thing she does know; everyone is always trying to figure her out. Which puzzles her, because all of them are so easy to decipher. In fact, she has to be careful, because people get very upset when she knows things about them that she really shouldn’t.
But reading people isn’t much use if you can’t get them to do what you want. Especially Erlon, the handsome guard Captain. He acts like he loves her, but he just won’t do anything about it.
And now they are going off on a caravan journey to the deserts of the East, with many issues unsolved, the first one being her edgy relationship with Aleria, the Caravan Master. And there’s something about her family’s Eastern heritage that no one will tell her.
No matter what happens on this trip, Jameta is going to learn a lot: hopefully enough to keep her alive.
