For this was were she had slain her own sword master long before to blood her magical blade with the kind of power she needed to avenge the cruel destruction of her family.

Tiger who had stood by Del through so many trials, would not forsake her now, and so, together, they began the journey North. But between them and their rendezvous with destiny was a vast land replete with dangers of both sword and spell. And behind them stalked and unseen and deadly presence intent on stealing away the very heart and soul of their sword-dancer's magic. . . .
