Amazon Editorial Review

In the twilight of a lost age of high mages, the great warrior Queen called White Jenna found a frail, one-armed child on the field of battle. In the way of the Hames of the Dales, she adopted the child, named her Scillia, and made the girl her heir, destined to rule as Queen at Jenna's passing.

But Jenna's natural son Jem, younger than Scillia, has been raised in the kingdom of their enemies as a hostage and foster son. He had been taught to resent his foster sister's power and covet the throne for himself and his Garun masters, unleashing a terrible time of bloodshed and betrayal.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Jane’s books are a bit of miss for me-this one was a miss, so I’ve released it as part of the Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes release challenge.

When he looked up again Tas had gone. Rising to join the others, he caught sight of something small and abandoned on the floor. "Tas you forgot your pipe." He picked it up and then saw words carved into the wood he had not seen before. Find the music, find the magic.
"Did you carve this?"
Tas did not turn. "Yes," he said, reluctantly. "I have to leave it."
"But, Tas, why?"
Tas squared his shoulders as though firming some resolve. But still he did not turn. "Because the shepherd said that it could only be used once. Thats why I can't get the pipe to play that song-or any song. I've used the magic." He took a deep breath and went on. "And he said that once I found the magic I had the pass the pipe on." he paused and then he did turn, a scamp's humor in his long brown eyes. "It's going to be a long winter. I'm going to leave it here for someone else to find."
