March 2015: the story paid off, since I'm now 8 books and counting deep into the Wars of Light and Shadow series. Still recommended before [b:The Curse of the Mistwraith|28660|The Curse of the Mistwraith (Wars of Light & Shadow, #1)|Janny Wurts|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328835513s/28660.jpg|1945432], a must-read before [b:Stormed Fortress|1040469|Stormed Fortress (Wars of Light & Shadow #8; Arc 3 - Alliance of Light, #5)|Janny Wurts|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328040963s/1040469.jpg|2472515].

Powerful short story, compelling and intense, about foreordained destiny entwining with hope and a woman's courage.
The story opens with the protagonist, young Meiglin, fleeing from a doomed life in the bawdyhouse where she has spent her childhood, with a terrible knowledge and hunted dreams. Janny Wurts' evocative writing style vividly portrays how Meiglin meets her destiny and fights for what she holds dear.
I picked this up as my first introduction to the Wars of Light and Shadow series, there are many references to people and events I gather related to the main series which have piqued my curiosity. ( )
