Guian (A High Fantasy)
Gwen lives in a world of dragons and mermaids, phoenix and faeries. She's more than used to filling her pockets with dried holly berries to fend off mean-spirited sprites. She has a chest filled with protective talismans, and books in which charms are inscribed in tiny, neat handwriting. But what she has the most of are potions, remedies, healing herbs. She didn't always use her talents on soldiers--once, they weren't at war. Once, the castle was light, the Queen good. But the Queendom of Samara has fallen to a tyrant, and the rebellion is weak and falling fast--and their only hope of change, the heir, the "Guian," has been missing for sixteen years. And although she prizes her low-key existence, things are going to change--and Gwen will find herself in armor, in love, and in the heart of a revolution.
