To Ride a Rathorn
|Издательство:||Recorded Books, Inc.|
These are the chronicles of Jamethiel Priests-bane, otherwise known as Jame, as she struggles to find a place in a universe full of danger, intrigue, and more than a bit of downright lunacy. The title To Ride a Rathorn comes from the Kencyr phrase that refers to someone attempting something insane, but it is too dangerous for them to stop. The reference is also to a certain young rathorn—think of an armor-plated, carnivorous unicorn with a nasty temper—who is after Jame for killing his mother and about to catch up with her.
At Tentir, Jame faces cut-throat competition and finds even more buried, poisonous family secrets. Not only is the Caineron heir sent to humiliate her, but a charming Ardeth Highborn arrives hell-bent on seducing her. Then too, what is she to make of the mysterious White Lady who haunts her dreams, or of the growling monster that prowls Tentir’s hallways and is said to eat young cadets for breakfast? She is learning that Tentir has secrets of its own and it is fighting for its soul. Under political pressure that threatens to compromise its independence, it looks to its commandant, an honorable man but also a Caineron. As the college tests Jame, so she tests it. Some things need to be broken.
