In a world where justice is achieved through careful customs of vengeance,
Gundack pursues love and the preservation of his honor. But can he break the cycle of vengeance?
Can he reach into his personal darkness and find the light of reason?
Desert kren are a nomadic people who believe their customs and mythology
show them how to be honorable and thrive. Gundack, a trader and leader of the tribe, seeks
revenge for the murder of his wife Talla in the prescribed manner of his people. According to
kren custom, he must fulfill a vow of decreed vengeance against Tarr, the ruthless mountain kren
responsible for Talla’s murder, and complete a pilgrimage to gain the right to marry the fair
Gundack forms an unlikely alliance with the human Rheemar, who searches for
a beloved sister stolen by Tarr. Rheemar’s mysterious past holds many secrets, including
knowledge that could lead to the end of Tarr’s attacks on travelers and villagers and allow
Gundack to return to his tribe in time for the Day of Marriages. But Rheemar is blinded by
loyalties that he won’t reveal and ambitions that reflect a naive understanding of
As time grows short and some vows are satisfied, circumstances thrust
Gundack into escalating tribal tensions. Only then does he realize that he must confront the
oldest of kren beliefs: If vengeance swallows the land, Tharda shall bring a white light to give
strength to the least of us, and unbelievers will make heroes arise. But can the least worthy
prove themselves to be heroes, and the most worthy at least heroic?
Laurel Anne Hill has written a modern parable about timeless ideals: The
pursuit of honor and justice, and the right to love and family. In an era when definitions of
terrorism and heroism can seem fickle and where honor may be capricious, this debut author gives
readers a story of great insight and inspiration.
