Excerpt

did not kill him. Alvia, the older woman recognized him and spared his life with a single word in a language Oben did not recognize.

The woman, Alvia, served Oben a bowl of stew. They ate late in the night, she explained, to avoid the watchful eyes of the hunters. She told Oben their tale.

A good, moody, story of a search for an escaped king (to kill him) in a land of rough hills, deserts, and quick death. Slavers, bandits, and professional killers are searching for the king, when a warrior woman comes on the scene, working her way through the crude and cruel land on a mission of her own.
Vrenna is a sort of Clint-Eastwood-spaghetti-western hero who keeps her mouth shut and her business to herself.
This story seems to come after the Vrenna and the Red Stone stories and before Vrenna and the Well.
