In The Hands of Gods
tortall au: Lexa of Haryse only wants to be a knight and, though a handful of girls have followed Lady Knight Keladry of Mindelan's example in the last ten years, many challenges remain for a girl page. Especially one who has the hand of a God upon her.
- Part 1 of In The Hands of Gods
After the disastrous events of the summer camp, Lord Padraig haMinch has forbidden Lexa – Alexandra, the sole heir to the Gold Noble House of Haryse – from returning to her training as a page without her father’s permission. Having spent the season with her protector and dear friend Captain Gustus Bruin at her side, Lexa has struggled to control and contain the power she finds herself with. Now, Lexa has finally returned to Corus…without her father’s permission. Struggling with duty and destiny, Lexa will face many decisions and dangers in the next three years of her training with family and friends at her side, and enemies that seem to lurk behind every corner.
And beyond Lexa’s awareness, a rumour travels across the realm of Tortall. Peace. A new King has claimed the seat of the Bloody Throne in Scanra and a treaty has been carried across the war-line into Tortall.
