Guardian of the Vale
by Tamara Shoemaker
Clayborne has fallen to the Elemental Alliance, and Alayne Worth flees Clayborne with twenty-three of her fellow students. Conflicts, perils, enemies, and rebellions push Alayne toward a cataclysmic battle that threatens to rend CommonEarth, and the Vale will decide victory or defeat. When those closest to Alayne threaten her, will she and the world in which she lives survive the fallout?
