YA-- The tale of a daring adventuress whose heart and spirit seek expertise in music, but whose experiences lead to : knowledge of life itself. Born out of wedlock, 14-year-old Rune is condemned to remain the butt of local gossip. She has dreams of joining the Bardic Guild, whose members enjoy high status, wealth, and security. First, though, she must escape from the village and her lowly status, and risk all to become a famous bard. Mages, musicians, elves, gypsies, usurper kings, and townspeople are drawn with color and an even assortment of good and bad. The clergy, however, receive a one-sided treatment, a point that is rather belabored. Although long and rambling, the book will satisfy those who enjoy Lackey's skill at weaving fantasy, intrigue, magic, power, and love into a good tale. They will eagerly await the sequel.
