Science Fiction | Fantasy
Fawn Bluefield, the clever young farmer girl, and Dag
Redwing Hickory, the seasoned Lakewalker soldier-sorcerer,
have been married all of two hours when they depart her
family's farm for Dag's home at Hickory Lake Camp. Having
gained a hesitant acceptance from Fawn's family for their
unlikely marriage, the couple hopes to find a similar
reception among Dag's Lakewalker kin. But their arrival is
met with prejudice and suspicion, setting many in the camp
against them, including Dag's own mother and brother. A
faction of Hickory Lake Camp, denying the literal bond
between Dag and Fawn, woven in blood in the Lakewalker
magical way, even goes so far as to threaten permanent exile
Before their fate as a couple is decided, however, Dag is
called away by an unexpectedâ€”and viciously magicalâ€”malice
attack on a neighboring hinterland threatening Lakewalkers
and farmers both. What his patrol discovers there will not
only change Dag and his new bride, but will call into
question the uneasy relationship between their peoplesâ€”and
may even offer a glimmer of hope for a less divided future.
Filled with heroic deeds, wondrous magic, and rich,
all-too-human characters, The Sharing Knife: Legacy is at
once a gripping adventure and a poignant romance from one of
the most imaginative and thoughtful writers in fantasy today.
