Continuing the story of the origins of the Clan and their discovery of how to travel through and draw upon the power of the M'hir,
Riders of the Storm
focuses on Om'ray Aryl Sac, who is gifted with this forbidden Talent. Aryl and her companions have found a new home in the mountains, but before long, their haven becomes a magnet for conflict.
While trying to rebuild the divided village of Sona, Aryl must also safeguard the secret of her Talent from other arriving Om'ray who seek to use her power. Aryl becomes Clan Speaker to negotiate the peace, but tensions escalate, blood is spilled, and her fate-as well as Sona's-hangs in the balance.
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. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
