The Girl from the North
by Cat Bruno
When a dark stranger, beautiful and haunting, approaches the flame-haired woman on a solitary stretch of beach, she senses that her peaceful life at the Healer’s Academy is about to change. Wondering why she was chosen and fearing what the mysterious man's presence in her life might mean, Bronwen asks the High Lord why he has come. His reply silences her and his word echoes loud. Kingmaker.
