Talia, a young runaway, is made a herald at the royal court after she rescues one of the legendary Companions. When she uncovers a plot to seize the throne, Talia must use her empathic powers to save the queen.
In the first of the series, this book is a bit weak on character description and development. The plot keeps you turning the pages, though, and it is a valiant effort at a beginning.
