Running away leads right back home – or does it?
Sarvet walks with a grinding limp, and her mountain culture keeps girls close to home. Worse, her mother emphasizes all the things Sarvet can't do. No matter how gutsy her spirit or bold her defiance, staying put means growing weaker. Yet only boys get wanderyars. Lacking their supplies or training they receive, how can Sarvet escape?
Can dreams – even big dreams – and inner certainty transform impossible barricades into a way out?
PRAISE FOR SARVET'S WANDERYAR
“...great introduction to the Hammarleeding's society that left me craving more. Sarvet is a wonderfully strong female character who you also meet again in Livli's Gift.” – Amazon review
“Breezed through Sarvet's Wanderyar; delightful! I think this is my favourite...though I'm still partial to Perilous Chance.” – Twitter comment
“...it’s an entrancing story with a character you care about, and desperately want to succeed... At first I saw Paiam as the clear antagonist, but I came to sympathize with her. This makes for a complex interaction between the two characters that rages almost completely in the subtext–very clever on Ney-Grimm’s part, and very effective... On a side note, one of my favourite things about Ney-Grimm’s work is her treatment of fantastical creatures...the pegasi seem ethereal...creatures of light and gauze that are somehow the most real things in the world.” – Speaking to the Eyes review
