The Orcheire’s fight to keep the old ways alive. These women practice half-remembered spells and rites often in times of great peril. With each new daughter the magic flows anew but the magic is often hidden and then forgotten because of the dangers that surround those that practice. Each of the five women get their chance in their generation to make something of themselves. Most of them use their gift for good. They didn’t try to bring any attention to themselves, but rather they practiced out of a need to continue their traditions. One of the women used her magic for her own good and it didn’t end up well.
As the years pass many of the old ways are forgotten but when war threatens the world, the last of the Orcheire’s woman is needed to help change the course of war and the world.
This was a fun read. Each of the five women are given their time and place. Each of their voices are connected to each other and as the years flow so does their power and the timelessness of women. Find this item in our catalog here.
