Summary
Using the sword, pen, body, and voice, four women confront a rebellion and the older, stranger threat behind it
Summary
Set in the world of author Sofia Samatar's A Stranger in Olondria, The Winged Histories follows the intertwined fates of four women. Caught on different sides of a violent rebellion, each recounts the tale of her life with the knowledge that neither she nor her story may survive the conflict. There's the scholar Tialon of Velvalinhu, daughter of a heretic priest; Seren the singer, a nomadic poet; Tav, a teenage swordmaiden from the noble house of Telkan; and Tav's sister, socialite Siski, who will play a more important role in Olondria's history than she ever expected. The Winged Histories features strong female characters, extensive world-building, and complex moral dilemmas that unfold in lyrical prose. -- Description by Gillian Speace
