This six book series chronicles the rise of the young fariidinus exile who must wrest her land from the hands of a corrupt and evil HighMother who has decided that only she can determine the suitability of a child's magic gifts. The evil Letal has set herself up as judge and jury, meting out the most brutal of punishments-loss of wings and banishment from the Heartland forever. Fourten year old Kirin is caught up in the madness, but she must first come to terms with her own mutilation and exile before she can embrace the struggles of the Heartland and become the battle queane she was born to be.
Book 1: Wings of the Exile
Kirin, a young fariidinus fey, is judged and condemned to the knife. After her wings are removed, she is exiled to the mainland where she is rescued by Stone, a young man who is part of a group of Heartland expatriates. The expatriates have long had a plan to restore the wings of a fariidinus with the right gifts in order to send her back into the Heartland as a weapon against the evil Highmother, Letal. Kirin is bitter and angry and not sure she wants to be part of the plan until Letal brings her war to the mainland and there is no other choice but to fight back.
Book 2: Sisters of the Blood
Kirin and Stone have returned to the Heartland where she has been given sanctuary by the wyrMaster in the Red Valley. Her unprecedented return from exile has polarized the great Houses and enraged the evil HighMother. A divided Heartland quickly becomes embroiled in a fiery civil war with Stone leading the combined armies with their new ally--the winged telepathic bloodCats. Kirin becomes the deadly weapon she was resurrected from exile to be.
