The Healer’s Rune
by Lauricia Matuska
Three hundred years after a great war shattered the Council of Races, the warriors of Rüddan have all but eradicated their cousins, the faerie Aethel. In so doing, they decimated the Dryht sages and enslaved mortal Humanity. Now a voice rises above the chaos and calls her people to rebel. Young Sabine, one of the Human slaves, must learn to overcome centuries of lies and prejudice to forge an alliance between four enemy races. But what chance does she stand to overthrow the Rüddan with her dangerous secret, a secret that threatens not only her own life but the existence of all the races on the planet?
“Understand this,” he said at last, his voice low, his words deliberate. “You are sani-noth now – you are without honor. You are not even capable of the ability to possess or exercise such a lofty characteristic. The very breath you inhale is a privilege, the very blink of your eye a gift of my grace. If you blink again, it is simply because I deem it appropriate for you to do so.”
