All-new adventure from the national best-selling of the Sword series!

The land of Sancorra has been conquered by the brutal Hecari, leaving thousands homeless and in fear for their lives. Audrun and her husband Davyd have four children with another due when their farm is burned. Consulting diviners, they learn that their new child must be born in Atalanda province-a peaceful land where Audrun has family. But to get there, they will have to travel close to the sinister woodlands of Alisanos, where darkness awaits to claim those unlucky enough to be chosen. Joining a karavan for safety, the family moves ever closer to the dangerous, mystical forest. And, as they are all about to discover, Alisanos is moving ever closer to them.

Baker & Taylor
When their home is destroyed by the vicious, tribal Hecari, Audrun and her husband Davyn, along with their four children, must join a karavan that will pass the demon-infested deepwood of Alisanos, but luck is on their side when they discover that their fellow passengers are gifted with various forms of magic. 20,000 first printing.

The land of Sancorra has been conquered by the brutal, tribal Hecari, leaving thousands of families without homes, living in peril of their lives as the Hecari routinely decimate village after village, culling any area where they feel too many of the conquered people have congregated. Audrun and her husband Davyd, already the parents of four children, and with one more on the way, have had their farm burned. They have consulted diviners who say that their new baby must be born in Atalanda province - a land at peace that is home to Audrun's relatives. For safety's sake they must join a karavan escorting refugees from their war-scourged land to remote but more peaceful destinations. But it is the end of the traveling season, and no karavans are headed for Atalanda. Made desperate by their time constraints, they beg to join the last karavan of the season, even though they know that to reach Atalanda they must eventually separate from the karavan, and take a road that lies far closer to the deepwood than is considered safe.

Don't let the cover art put you off. Karavans is a terrific start to a new fantasy series by Jennifer Roberson. It is, however, Book One so be prepared to wait for the resolution of a number of plot threads.
