Hero's Quest Betrayed
by Paula Schumacher
When a jewel has been stolen from a temple, Peryn's people choose her to bring home the artifact that holds their collective soul. Peryn's adventure takes her from the seemingly idyllic life in the north to harsh realities in the coarse south. Here she meets Alyche--both friend and foe. Their relationship, fraught with misunderstandings, deepens until Alyche's will clashes with Peryn's quest.
