In the Service of The Boyar
by Jason Graff
In the land of the Boyar, a boy will fall in love and become much more than a man.
Fleeing with his family from danger, a boy catches a glimpse of Fifika, as their clan travels with haste to the lands of the boyar, a mysterious benefactor. Smitten, the boy becomes her playmate there in the Carpathians where the boyar resides and whose hillsides are filled with enchanted beasts.
