I'll be brief. In the various genres of adventure fiction there often appears a character (minor or major) of surpassing, world-destroying power. In the Darkwar trilogy Glen Cook follows the life of one such adept. Marika came out of nowhere. She was well-raised and as well educated as a pack of Stone Age hunter-gatherers could. Her talent takes her from the wilderness to civilization. In the wider world she pursues the love of knowledge she brought with her and discovers a love of flying. She finds that the stars are denied to her, but she reaches for them. She finds herself beset by ancient conspiracies and betrayed by friends, so she fights back in self defense. She discovers her world faces an ice age and remakes society to survive. Out in the stars a world-shaking discovery is made and she fights to protect it. The drama all comes from a child's urge to seek and explore and learn and grow and be safe. The conflict comes from those who hate what she is, fear her for her power or seek to destroy any threat to the established order even at the cost of destroying the race's chance to survive. It's a hard life when even your friends and mentors fear you. Marika isn't human but her experience speaks to all of us.
