From the acclaimed author of Fires of the Faithful comes the tale of an impetuous young woman, freeborn in a world of slavery and magic.

Twenty-year-old Lauria is the favorite aide to Kyros, a powerful military officer. On his authority, she is messenger, observer, and spy. But now she is entrusted with a mission more dangerous than any that have come before. . . .

After years of relative peace, word has come to Kyros's compound that the bandit tribe known as the Alashi is planning an offensive. It is up to Lauria to infiltrate the Alashi by posing as an escaped slave--a charge that requires she serve in the household of a neighboring officer. From there, she will stage an escape and continue on in her guise as a runaway.

But posing as a slave--a virgin concubine, no less--may prove the least of her troubles. For even if she does escape and the Alashi do accept her, how can this freeborn woman convince them she is slave, not spy? And, worse, what if her own views are gradually changing, calling everything she believes about her world into question?

Review:

Praise for Fires of the Faithful

"This far-from-typical fantasy from first-time author Kritzer is like chocolate cake: instant addiction...With habit-forming books like this, you can't read just one."
-- Publishers Weekly

"Entertaining."
-- Booklist

"Subtly brilliant from start to finish."
-- Locus

"Exceedingly well done. I couldn't put it down."
-- Katherine Kurtz

Praise for Turning the Storm

"Mesmerizing...With panache and dexterity, Ms. Kritzer weaves complex plot threads and feisty characters into a tight story of political and social intrigue. Nebulous loyalties create fluid allegiances that contribute to the Machiavellian quality of the story."
-- Romantic Times (four stars)

"This series is a very promising debut, and I hope to see much more from this writer."
-- Philadephia Press/Review
