Kaunis Clan Saga

The Hammarleeding people dwell in the high mountain valleys of the North-lands. They wield a tribal magic born of dance and song and the flow of sacred waters.

Ritual and tradition hold a special place in Hammarleeding culture. Their rites are beautiful and uplifting, but they underpin a way of life that features many thou-shalt-nots.

In the Kaunis Clan Saga, one woman – or one man – from each generation challenges the shibboleths that threaten their particular bright dream.

Kay Nielsen art depicting a lassie wandering the mountainsSarvet’s Wanderyar • Running away leads straight back home – or does it?

Sarvet walks with a grinding limp, and her mountain culture keeps girls close to home. Worse, her mother emphasizes all the things Sarvet can’t do. No matter how gutsy her spirit or bold her defiance, staying put means growing weaker. Yet only boys get wanderyars. Lacking their supplies and training, how can Sarvet escape? Can dreams – even big dreams – and inner certainty transform impossible barricades into a way out?
