The Maker's Brush (Storm Phase Interlude 1)
by David Alastair Hayden
(This novelette takes place after the final battle in The Storm Dragon's Heart.) Unlike her famous brother Turesobei, who will one day become their clan's next high wizard, or Iniru, his assassin girlfriend, Enashoma's destiny is to marry a noble of her mother's choosing and host teas for the rest of her life. This is decidedly not the future she dreams of. But then she gets a chance at adventure.
