Song Child by D.M. Andrews


Lost to both history and legend is the knowledge of when the Crown of
Flames last blossomed in the world, but the merchant Vladan will see it
blossom again and witness the unfolding destiny of its mysterious
custodian, the young girl Devana.

Vladan of Yaruna is vain, cynical, and tortured by memories from his
youth. At an unplanned stop after a small mishap on his riverboat, the
merchant meets Devana and her sister and in no time at all he's caught
up not only in a quest to aid the young girl but also to redeem himself
from the guilt of his own past.

Devana must heal a wound inflicted upon the world by the sorcerer
Zmekosch who holds power over death itself, but the young girl has a
power of her own — the gift of song. A gift that will change Vladan and
the world about him forever.
