A Stirring in the Bones

by Jennifer Lyn Parsons

"This is more than a mission. There are larger things at stake here than the survival of the Hantirri or the Diot. It may not seem it, but the galaxy is at a fragile place in its history, more fragile than I've seen it in many, many years. There is no debate on this. Tir chooses the messenger and those it wants for its tasks. You are here and the time is now, Elys Ki Dul."

"A personal story at the heart of a vast, fragile universe.” - Tara Lindsey, author of “The Esbat Sequence”

Elys Ki Dul long ago accepted that he is neither the best nor brightest of the Hantirri Order. He takes comfort in being useful, focusing on completing his missions as a courier and training the apprentice he chose himself, despite her unconventional nature.

When an unexpected letter comes into his possession, he finds himself charged with a task meant for those more powerful than himself. With his world turned upside down, Elys relies on his apprentice’s clear-headed outlook, a new companion’s heart-centered strength, and the wisdom of a mysterious old woman who is more than she seems.

Set amidst a galaxy recovering from centuries of conflict, A Stirring in the Bones tells the story of a humble man forced to question his place in the universe when Fate comes calling. Or maybe he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even Elys isn’t quite sure.
