This week’s book is The Road To Cordia by Jess Allison, a good author (and a friend of mine).
Here’s her blurb:
THE ROAD TO CORDIA by Jess Allison
In the country of Cancordia, on the planet D’Az, set on the edge of the sea, is an isolated Fisherfolk village. In this village people are dying who could have been saved. Ja’Nil (very much against her will) is sent to the Royal Court in the city of Cordia to find a healer.
At one time the country of Cancordia was known for its safety, but now you take your life in your hands when you travel the roads. There are slavers, tricksters, dragons, werewolves, powerful warlords, and ladies with mysterious and terrible gifts.
One of the people Ja’Nil meets along the way is a handsome young man named Ee’Rick. They decide to travel together. Only much later does she discover Ee’Rick’s secret.
At the Palace, the Queen is having troubles of her own. Before Ja’Nil and Ee’Rick reach the city, traitors put their plan into action. Suddenly the two travelers find themselves caught up in the middle of a deadly political coup.
Instead of finally being safe, the most dangerous part of their adventure has just begun. But Ja’Nil is developing a little magic of her own, and Ee’Rick is an incredibly efficient warrior. Even so, Ja’Nil’s journey to Cordia is turning into an experience she may not survive.
The Road To Cordia is the first in a series of Cancordian Fantasy Adventures.
So hop on over to Amazon and give it a gander.
