Newly weds Dag and Fawn make their way to Dag’s Lakewalker clan. The news of their marriage is greeted with scorn and hostility. To make matters worse, Dag has to go on patrol when a malice attacks a farmer settlement. As Dag battles the malice and learns more about his own innate magic, Fawn struggles to adapt to the Lakewalker culture.
This is a wonderful read. It has strong characters, an interesting setting and unique magic and monsters. I look forward to reading the next two volumes in the saga.
