As Lored attempts to investigate the truth of the charges brought against Rue, the herb woman, Tari tries to hide her insecurities and doubts behind a facade of serenity.
Lored and Tari must keep the twins' presence on the Isle of Kiros a secret, as the taku-kevir starts to question witnesses to events that happened over a year before.
If Lored can't free the herb woman from prison, he and Otta (who is in hiding) won't be able to travel north to continue their pursuit of the kaerlings who have abducted Lally and Derri.
This fantasy tale will grip you from page one and won't let you go until you've read every single volume in the series! If you enjoy Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Tad Williams and/or JRR Tolkien, you'll love The Kaerling.
