The Long Walk, Chapter 1
Jerrik Crevinn may have fought his way across the Civilized Lands as a mercenary, but his reputation has been dogged by a great defeat: the fall of the Southern Hold. To atone, he has journeyed to the far north, to the great tundra, to be judged by the spirits which dwell there.
But Tahni Vey, the greatest singer in the Civilized Lands, has sung a prophecy! Jerrik must live, even though he will one day kill her.
