I'm excited to read this new novel by Leo Valiquette, The Crucible Tree.
Religious unrest inflames the Kingdoms. Mad gods seek their vengeance. And the will of the Sword refuses to be denied. Ryn and Josalind are forced to take separate paths where the murder of an innocent and the sacrifice of family may be inevitable.
Thanks to Elaine Ritchel for this wonderful review of WILD CONVICTION!
