When disease struck Serel's new settlement, it feared that its clan head would force them to resume their punishing nomadic life. That's when it heard tales of a madwoman in the hills... a madwoman with healing skills. But can this rebel female truly help them? And if she can, will the rest of the clan choose to triumph over the prejudices that would cause them to spurn her help?

About M.C.A. Hogarth

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

I love Kediil SO MUCH. Seeing her from another's point of view is simply priceless.

Review by: K. Starbuck on Nov. 27, 2010 :
Sequel to 'Freedom, Spiced and Drunk' this is a sweet little taste of what happened to the protagonist from that same story. The original is highly worth a read and those who enjoyed the first will undoubtedly then find this one just as pleasant.

As ever, the author's prose is laser-tight. There are no wasted words in the Jokka stories which might irritate some, but also allow for a concise and clear understanding of whichever tale is being imparted.

The narrator in this story is easy to empathize with, and it is interesting to see how our continuing character has fared between the two stories, given their personal difficulties.

This one is a quick and easy read, certainly worth the money!
