Abstract:

"Seventeen year-old Kerida Nast may be the only Talent left in the Faraman Peninsula. Ker had always wanted a career in the military, just like the rest of her family, so when her Talent was discovered, and she knew she'd have to spend the rest of her life as a psychic for the Halls of Law, she wasn't happy about it. Just as she's reconciling herself to her new role, the centuries old empire is invaded by strangers from Halia, who begin a systematic campaign of destruction against the Halls themselves, killing every last Talent they can find. Kerida manages to escape, falling in with Tel Cursar, a young soldier fleeing the final battle, which saw the deaths of the royal family. Without this necessary leadership, the remaining military will not be able to act quickly enough to save the empire. As they head for a military outpost still free from the invaders, Kerida and Tel discover a long-hidden colony of Feelers, paranormal outcasts shut away from the world for so long they are considered mythical. These traditional enemies of the Halls of Law welcome Kerida, believing she fulfils a Prophecy they were given centuries before by the last race of griffins. With the help of these new allies Kerida and Tel must track down the missing heir to the throne, or the Halian invaders will never be repelled, and the Rule of Law will end."--
