Riders of the Storm (Stratification #2)
Continuing the story of the origins of the Clan and their discovery of how to travel through and draw upon the power of the M'hir, Riders of the Storm focuses on Om'ray Aryl Sac, who is gifted with this forbidden Talent. Aryl and her companions have found a new home in the mountains, but before long, their haven becomes a magnet for conflict. While trying to rebuild the divided village of Sona, Aryl must also safeguard the secret of her Talent from other arriving Om'ray who seek to use her power. Aryl becomes Clan Speaker to negotiate the peace, but tensions escalate, blood is spilled, and her fate-as well as Sona's-hangs in the balance.
