About Dead Man’s Witness
Lored finally has enough evidence to clear the herb woman, but can his claims absolve Rue of the charges of murder?
Although the focus changes between characters and places, it all flows well from one chapter to the next. The overall effect is very satisfying. I think this is the most accomplished instalment so far. Well-structured, great character- and world building. Can’t wait for the next book! W Thomas
When Lored discovers damning evidence against the Prince Consort himself, the trial for the herb woman’s life begins.
But Tari is beset by Stio, who thinks she is present on Kiros with dark, ulterior motives.
Meanwhile, Otta and Erl, waiting patiently for Lored and Tari to meet them at the crossroads, are hunted by Stio and his men on the borders of the Wild Wood.
Can Lored establish Rue’s innocence? Can Tari convince Stio that neither she nor the taku-kevir are a threat to the throne of Kiros? And can the twins continue to evade capture? Find out in Dead Man’s Witness!
