Sins of a Mage
The aftermath can be as dangerous as the attack.
Marii, a girl learning the trade of the natural healer, spends time with her father, when he is on duty guarding a dangerous magical bridge.
Trouble has already happened. With her father almost unconscious from pain, Marii must use everything she has ever learnt to keep them both alive.
Her skills as a healer will not be enough.
This is the third story in Felicia Fredlund’s excellent Sorceress Islands series. A particularly dark fantasy short story.
