Exiled from her people, the Om'ray, for her use of her forbidden talent, the ability to manipulate the mysterious force known as the M'hir, Aryl Sarc leads a small band of followers, including a human ambassador from the Trade Pact worlds, to find temporary safety with the Grona Clan. But realizing they cannot stay, the group sets out for a new home and discovers the mysterious ruined village of Sona that may not be abandoned after all. The author of "The Trade Pact Universe" series (A Thousand Words for Stranger; Ties of Power; To Trade the Stars ) continues her linked "Stratification" series (Reap the Wild Wind ) with a tale of persistence in exile. Aryl and her companions make up a courageous and varied band of heroes, each with his or her own strengths and weaknesses. Libraries possessing other series titles as well as those where the author has a following should add this to their sf collections.
