"Look at her - she's Hill Clan.  Even the Matyrani don't like them..."
  Isaura - little is known about her race, but much is whispered.  Born to refugees, she grows up enduring racism and superstition within a community that fears her.  She has few friends, and those she treasures.  Trapped, she longs for escape to a different life. 
  Escape is only the beginning of her troubles.  Having fled an invading army with her friends, Isaura is faced with heinous choices in order to survive.  Secrets from her past emerge to torment her and threaten to destroy all she holds dear.  Her struggles forge a bond with an ancient power - a power which may transform or consume her.  Old hatreds and superstitions are renewed and at her most vulnerable she learns the true nature of those around her.
  Her only hope lies in a foreign land - a land rich in tradition; ruled by three powerful clans.  A land with a history marked by warfare; where magic as we know it does not exist.  Instead what is here, in abundance, is a more primal power.
  Survival carries a high price.
  Welcome to Altaica.

I really liked this chapter. The descriptions were wonderful and the language made us feel just how bad the situation was.

Not only is the writing superb, its fresh and that's hard to find in fantasy. Also, going to make a Google+ group because I'm a copy cat and that's a great idea to discuss story ideas! Bravo. Onto the next chapter!
