Library of the Sapphire Wind by Jane Lindskold
Book 1 of Over Where
Paperback – Baen Books – Feb 2022 – 289 pages
Instead of mentors, they got monsters . . . That’s what Xerak, Vereez, and Grunwold think when three strange creatures shimmer into being within the circle of Hettua Shrine. Their confusion is reasonable enough. After all, they’ve never seen humans before. As for Margaret Blake, Peg Gallegos, and Tessa Brown—usually known as Meg, Peg, and Teg—they’re equally astonished, but better prepared. With a mysterious verse uttered by Teg as they arrived, and with doubts on all sides, the six join forces and venture out into the world dubbed “Over Where.” First they must find the Library of the Sapphire Wind, destroyed years before. Will they find answers there, or is this only the first stage in their search?
