Overview

In the oppressive city of Drinn, a trio of magical strangers offers a servant girl the chance of a new life
Drinn is not a safe place to be a witch. Ranira knows that better than most, for when she was just a child, the temple guards burned her parents at the stake for practicing magic. Now an indentured servant for a brutal innkeeper, she lives every day with the shame of her parents’ alleged crime.
 
There is no worse time to visit Drinn than during the Midwinter Festival, when the city gates are sealed so that no outsider can witness the temple’s secret rituals. And at Ranira’s inn, three guests have overstayed their welcome. Attempting to protect Ranira from her master’s cruelty, the three reveal their magical powers and attract the attention of the temple guards. Now, to save her new friends from certain death, Ranira must unleash the power that cost her parents their lives.

    Fantastic Adventure

    If you love adventure and magic this is the book for you. I have read this book over and over and still enjoy every bit of it. I love Patricia C. Wrede and her work is amazing. I just wish she wrote more books like this. I have read all of her books and there should be more. This is one of the greatest stories of magic and adventure that I have ever read. If you can get a copy of this book, I suggest you buy it!

    Greatest I've ever read

    I got this book by chance I took it cuz it had mystery, adventure, witchcraft, and a women as the main characters. Of course, the fact that one of the womens names was close to mine didn't hurt. Once I started to read it, I couldn't but it down. After reading it I wanted more. Every page was thrilling. That book turned me on to her other works (Enchanted Forest Series) and I've been a fan ever since.
