Alsalda_2_Bearsthe blurb

a tale of treachery, loyalty and of seismic cultural change
as seen through the eyes of four main characters.

Thirteen winters-seen. Daughter of the Mistress of First Granary at Isle Ardy. Been nowhere, knows everything (because, as she says, she eavesdrops on her father, the granary trader Master Bukarn).

Brother of Detah. Recently returned from Dal Uest where he served as an assistant lore-man. He now trains as an eblan (to the disappointment of Bukarn’s Ulvregan family at Luktosn’s Hold).

Eblan Erspn
Brother to Mistress Siradath of Sapapsan’s Granary at His Indwelling. As Eblan Head Man, it is for him to uphold the Alisime traditions.

Captain Horsemaster Megovis
Second-in-command to Horsemaster Krisnavn, Commander of the Saramequai Division of the King’s Regiment. He doesn’t trust the eblann—for reasons he prefers to forget.
