Performed with sultry, evocative flair by Abby Craden, master storyteller Mary Mackey’s The Fires of Spring is volume three in her Earthsong Trilogy, a richly imagined romantic adventure. Listeners are transported back over 6,000 years to a time of magical divination, curses, nomads, and warriors. In the land that would become western Russia, Queen Marrah’s beloved son is captured and entranced by the magic and nefarious Changar. In a test of will and daring, a young female avenger named Keshna must take on the mighty Changar. Written with intrigue, romance, and good humor in equal parts, The Fires of Spring is perfect for a cold winter night.
In prehistoric Europe, Keru, the son of the Queen of Shara, has been kidnapped by a nomadic diviner wishing to turn him against his own people. A band of warriors led by Keru's sister, Luma, and her best friend, Keshna--who is passionately in love with Keru--set out to find him before his soul is completely corrupted by the nomads.
