The Zeiihbu Master (Aerenden #3) by Kristen Taber - Giveaway & Excerpt

Separated and on opposite sides of the kingdom, Nick and Meaghan face different pursuits which could change the balance of power in Ærenden forever. 

While Nick trains the villagers to be soldiers, Meaghan and a small rescue party venture into Zeiihbu to find Faillen's young son, before Garon can use the boy's power to destroy those still fighting against his rule. 

Everyone knows Meaghan could be on a suicide mission, but when Nick stumbles upon a secret concealed in one of the southern villages, he realizes that Garon might not be Meaghan's greatest foe. The enemy most likely to kill her is someone who has also promised to keep her safe. 


Meaghan stood. Turning to face the front of the cave, she yanked two blades from her belt and focused on the razor beasts that launched at the wind. One hit the force straight on, and then another. Both bounced back, but the third broke through as Talis’s power weakened. A fourth found no resistance as the wall dissolved, allowing the rest of the pack to gain access.

The cave entrance stretched no wider than two of their pack animals, but that fact did not seem to deter the razor beasts. They pushed forward, their yowls menacing as they attacked. Over the bodies of the beasts brought down by Faillen’s arrows, Meaghan saw dozens more waiting.

She cast her first knife at a cat stalking Cal. The animal staggered, and then continued to advance. A second knife brought the beast down, and she grabbed the last two knives from her belt. One ended the life of a cat that broke free of the pack and raced toward Talis. The last pierced the skull of a cat that bounded in her direction. Another beast charged toward her and she cast about for a weapon. She found only a pile of rocks on the ground beside her.

Desperate, she grabbed one and lobbed it at the beast. The air shattered into shards of brown and white.
