Kieran accidentally wanders into Leas lands, and a fall from his horse leaves him injured and at the mercy of his enemies.
He discovers that the Leas are not entirely as he believed them to be. He develops a friendship with the Leas healer-prince, and the two work together to recreate an ancient technique for melding bardic and healing magic, a technique he secretly hopes will wake his queen.
As friendship deepens into love, will they find a way to heal the rift between Leas and Scathlan, or will the old enmity destroy them?

About the Author
"Definitely give this author a chance," says one reader, "her storytelling will draw you in. Her style is just a hint of Andre Norton, a dash of J. K. Rowling, and the tiniest pinch of Anne Rice. The rest is her own unique stamp."
Her debut novel, The Stolen Luck, won a silver medal for original-world fantasy in the Global Ebooks Awards and an Eppie for fantasy romance. The first book of her Ravensblood urban fantasy series won a gold medal for contemporary fantasy. The much-awaited sequel, Raven's Wing, has been recently released.
Two of her short stories won Honorable Mention in the prestigious Writers of the Future contest, and her steampunk werewolf story, The Beast Within, appears in the anthology Gears and Levers 2 edited by Phyllis Irene Radford.
Shawna's love of live Irish music and dance frequently influences her work. She has an affinity for wolves and used to keep a wolf hybrid as a pet, a background which helps her put the wolf in her werewolves. Her current four-footed children are a Lipizzan stallion and a black-and-orange cat named Samhain who occasionally takes over her blog.
Shawna also likes to play with the Society for Creative Anachronism, and can sometimes be found in medieval garb on a caparisoned horse, throwing javelins into innocent hay bales that never did anything to her.
She grew up in Pennsylvania, and now lives in the beautiful wine country of Oregon. Each has colored her writing in different ways.
You can find her work on Amazon. Friend her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter, where she posts an amazing array of geekery, including history tidbits, Whovian memes, Trek humor, writing tips, and pics of David Tennant in a kilt.
