A tale of elven magick during the time of the Inquisition in 14th century Europe. A great book... I'm going to hunt down the sequels myself.
Satisfying revenge fantasy of an abused girl in a medieval world in which elves are losing ground to the Inquisition.
Set during the time of the Inquisition, branded a witch for her healing powers, Miriam becomes a frail young outcast saved by the intervention of elves. Very exciting fantasy story plot. The sequel to this book is also listed.
read this series a while ago, but I do remember enjoying it
From the back cover: Miriam is a frail young outcast whose healing powers have branded her a witch in the Inquisition of 14th century Europe. Fleeing her city in search of the Free Towns and acceptance, she is brutally violated by a man she heals from the brink of death. Saved by the intervention of the elves, Miram swears to exact revenge on her assailant. Bur first she must learn the art of swordmanship and train to be a warrior with her newfound powers of elfin sorcery. When the Free Towns come under siege by the Inquisition--led by Miriam's attacker--the safety and very existence of her people is threatened. Miriam knows her strength will be tested in a face to face confrontation with her enemy, but how can she battle for the freedom of others when her own revenge is a mere sword's length away
