Book Two of the Mer Cycle
by Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff
They said Taminy-a-Cuinn was a sorceress who drowned in the Meri’s Sea, punished for seeking a station denied to women by tradition. One hundred years have passed. Taminy has returned to the land of the living with a purpose only she knows. Some see her reappearance as a miracle. Others see it as a diabolical plot to overthrow both the religion and government of Caraid-land. Colfre Malcuim, King, sees it as a means of making his own power absolute.
For good or ill, Taminy is the pivot upon which the future of a people turns. She is also an eighteen-year-old girl, learning anew what it means to be human. Will she fulfill her purpose, or will she become a pawn in a high-stakes game of political chess?
Taminy is the sequel to The Meri. Locus Magazine Best First Novel and Crawford Fantasy Award nominee.
“…be sure to pick up Taminy, the enthralling continuation of Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff’s powerful and powerful and evocative first book, The Meri. …this intricately wrought character study…set(s) the stage beautifully for the forthcoming Crystal Rose. Ms. Bohnhoff is a superlative talent with an exquisite gift for pure storytelling magic.” – Romantic Times
“If The Meri is about the liberating and empowering aspects of Divine love, Taminy is about its sometimes fearsome human consequences. They make a good pair, richer together than either would be alone. …I will be keeping an eye out for the third.” – Science Fiction Review
