Title: The Silence Of Medair
By: Host, Andrea K.
Call #: Science Fiction Host.A
What if you were the hero promised by legend – and then failed? Medair an Rynstar was supposed to be that hero, but a critical error at what should have been her moment of triumph means that she has awoken 500 years after the invasion she was meant to stop. Now, the country she loves is run by the descendants of the invaders she hated – and is threatened once again by yet another group of invaders. The resulting story is a lovely exploration of so many things – betrayal, loss, survivor’s guilt, revenge, forgiveness, love – all wrapped into a compelling plot in a beautifully imagined world.
Read these two books together – they are really two halves of the same work (Voice Of The Lost is here). (Also one of my favorite works of fantasy of the past decade, but no pressure…)
