Shards of History

Shards of History Book 1

Rebecca Roland

Shards-of-history (1)

Feared and reviled, the fierce, winged creatures known as Jeguduns live in the cliffs surrounding the Taakwa valley. When Malia discovers an injured Jegudun in the pine forest of the valley, she risks everything--exile from the village, loss of her status as clan mother in training, even her life--to befriend and save the surprisingly intelligent creature. But all of that pales when she learns the truth: the threat to her people is bigger and more malicious than the Jeguduns. Lurking on the edge of the valley is an Outsider army seeking to plunder and destroy her people. It's only a matter of time before the Outsiders find a way through the magic that protects the valley--a magic that can only be created by Taakwa and Jeguduns working together. "Fast-paced, high-stakes drama in a fresh fantasy world!" -- James Maxey, author of the Dragon Age trilogy.
