Wielder school’s out for the summer, but Jahl, Donya and Rouen can’t seem to get a quiet moment anywhere.
Jahl’s certain Donya is up to some sort of mischief, separate from having their first child any day, and Rouen has received a mysterious package from the young twai wielder they met in Carolan Faire last year.
What starts out as a short trip to the headwaters of the Naigan River turns into one mad dash after another. The ladies of the lake steal his newborn daughter. A small mountain predator has attached itself to Rouen, and a mystery at the capital places them all in danger when the Martan’s Ferry council is attacked.
If he fails to protect the council, Chussan Faire will be next to suffer, and his small family won’t survive the onslaught.
Read the third book in the Standing Stone series because magic has taken on a whole new twist for Jahl, Donya and Rouen.
