Gathering Blue

Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She fears for her future – until she is spared by the all-powerful Council of Guardians. But Kira has been spared for a reason, not simply out of mercy. She is to use her gift for weaving to perform a dangerous task that no other community member can. While her task keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, it also hints at frightening mysteries and secrets about the world she lives in. No one must know of her dangerous plan to uncover the truth about her world, and see what places exist beyond it…
