Shifting PlainsBook - 2009
The spellbinding prequel to the national bestselling Sons of Destiny series.
Decades before the shattering of the empire of Aiar and hundreds of years before the time of the Sons of Destiny, Tava Ell Var, a female shapeshifter, became the leader of the people of the Shifting Plains.
An enigmatic figure, Tava never knew her mother - apart from the brutal story of her life as documented by her father. Her family history served as a warning about danger on the Shifting Plains, the land Tava now leads. When her father is murdered, she encounters Kodan, a warrior who recognizes the power that emboldens the strange, beautiful, and resilient Tava.
