Canticle by MJ Heiser, Wilette Youkey, Steven Novak

Athena Falcon, a novice to the order of women warriors known as Travellers, is sent on a mission to obtain relics of great importance to the survival of the land of Jaenrye. Can the adventure prove to her the existence of heroes?

Athena Falcon doesn't believe in heroes or adventures -- at least, not the sort told in old hymns and epics. Those stories served enough to get her Traveller sisters interested in joining the order and learning the skills to deploy on errands for the good of their country, but life didn't work that way. Most of the errands they were sent on were simple tasks, like diplomatic envoy visits to neighboring countries or the occasional rescue of a missing child. True adventure stories, and the need for true heroes, were nothing more than myth.

Athena is sent on her first solo mission with a Canticle -- a ceremony held at Traveller's Rest. She is dispatched to Amhersam, a port town in the south lands, to meet a ship from across the ocean and procure important relics for safekeeping at the Rest. In the process, she meets a magic-man, a monster, and a mysterious child, and she's called upon to become the hero her country needs, when it needs her most.

About the Author

MJ Heiser (aka Mary Johnson Heiser) learned to read at the age of three, started doodling stories at the age of eight, obtained her first typewriter at the age of 12, and finished her first book at the age of 13.
"When I write, I'm liberated. I'm not trapped by my gender, skin color, age, weight, or marital status. The only thing before me is the act of creation; it's all I am, and it's my only purpose."
When she's not busy being so liberated, she's probably working, walking her dogs, planning trips with her loving husband, or trying to not trip over something.
