Gift of War
by Dorothy Tinker
After a month of traveling together, Ferez and Gemi have grown close, but Ferez still thinks Gemi is just James, a peasant-born boy known to most as the Ghost. As they enter a new province, they face an otherworldly power out to destroy the peace they seek and the spreading chaotic poison of enemy nomads. Can they find peace together, or will their enemies’ poison infect them both?
