A teen slave girl, Maerad, has music and magic in her blood. While milking cows she meets a bard, Cadvan, and brings him food. He helps her escape, and together they set out to save their kingdom while Maerad develops her musical and magical skills. Their quest leads them through enchanted forests and schools of magic, across deserts, and finally to the sea. They face good and evil forces, and Maerad’s magical powers grow more powerful than anyone but Cadvan might expect.
