Overview

The Griffin Mage trilogy, now complete in one volume, tells the story of the war between men and griffins —- and the young girl, torn between two worlds, who will decide the fate of all.

Little ever happens in the quiet villages of peaceful Feierabiand. The course of Kes' life seems set: she'll grow up to be an herb-woman and healer for the village of Minas Ford, never quite fitting in but always more or less accepted. And she's content with that path —- or she thinks she is.

Until the day the griffins come down from the mountains, bringing with them the fiery wind of their desert and a desperate need for a healer. But what the griffins need is a healer who is not quite human... or a healer who can be made into something not quite human.

This omnibus edition contains the complete Griffin Mage trilogy: Lord of the Changing Wind, Land of the Burning Sands and Law of the Broken Earth.

Meet the Author

Rachel Neumeier started writing fiction to relax when she was a graduate student and needed a hobby unrelated to her research. Prior to selling her first fantasy novel, she had published only a few articles in venues such as The American Journal of Botany. However, finding that her interests did not lie in research, Rachel left academia and began to let her hobbies take over her life instead. She now raises and shows dogs, gardens, cooks, and occasionally finds time to read. She works part time for a tutoring program, though she tutors far more students in Math and Chemistry than in English Composition.

This trilogy is essential reading for anyone that enjoys fantasy! The characters are smart and bold, usuing intellect and intinct over brawn to solve seemingly insurmountable resolution to conflict.

I eagerly awaited each of these books as they came out and highly recommend! The series provides a darker side to griffens than I've seen from other fantasy writers, an it is a very refreshing perspective!!! I loved Rachel's writing style and the uniqueness of the world she's created in this series.

These books are like air: sharp and intelligent. The dangers are more complicated than "good vs evil"; the solutions rely on brain and heart instead of brawn. Language, world and characters are intricate and intelligent. This author is delight for the intellectual fantasy afficianado.
