About the Book

Gath and his friends have to go on despite the loss of Oda who had been abducted by Master Trader Soj Eckin.  The memories of their lives together remains with Gath – and with Zar.


Eckin, Samlathi Via and Oda each have their own paths to travel and for at least two of them it is to prove a long, difficult and painful path.


For the Diderai, Ral-an, wanting to escape from his duties with the prince’s Company and its Lord Captain, Gath, finds a more welcome and difficult task set him when he is sent a Warrant and a letter in which Gath begs him to find Oda for him.  He is joined in that search by an escort of both Prince’s Guard and Diderai.


On the Estate of the Lady Dreanna a new servant arrives, an ‘exotic’ who has travelled far since he awoke in Horisland and afterwards came onto a string of the Master Trader Soj Eckin.


For a Defender on that Estate, however, there was to be a happier outcome when he was summoned to join the Lord Captain.

About the Author

Mayes Reynolds, born in 1934 at the height of the Depression to parents in poor circumstances, started writing when she took an early ill-health retirement from the Civil service after having been widowed some years before. Her three sons had left home either having married or found their own places, and being of a retiring disposition she seized upon a casual suggestion by a chance met acquaintance that she ought to write a book. She began almost at once without any thought other than rediscovering the pleasure of putting pen to paper that she had always found during her time at Grammar School and later when she went to evening classes at the Middlesex Polytechnic, as it was then, and obtained a BSc (Hons).
