Mara didn't know her parents were living a lie.

After learning a secret that causes Mara to question her heritage, she runs to Torindan, the High Hold of Faeraven, to seek the truth. What the innkeeper’s daughter doesn't know is that Rand, the mysterious tracker she’s hired to guide her through the wilderness, has been sent on an errand that puts her life at risk.

Helping Mara furthers Rand's purposes, but he doesn't count on his emotions interfering.

With Faeraven on the brink of war, Rand is faced with a life-altering choice, Mara is torn between escape and learning the truth, and the future hangs in the balance.

Will Mara be heir to the Faeraven throne? Can Rand escape the terrors of the dungeon?

As Torindan and Pilaer prepare for battle, anything can happen.

(After running away from home, the heroine of Sojourner travels with a hired guide into the wilderness on her way to Torindan, the high hold of Faeraven. Hael is a stablehand at the inn where Mara grew up.)
“Mara, why did you run away?” His soft tone barely rose above the splashing of water, but she heard him.
“Because I’m lackwitted.”
“I doubt that.”
“You hardly know me well enough to form an opinion.”
“I’m certain you wouldn’t run away without cause.”
“I didn’t want to marry.” She hadn’t meant to blurt that out.
“And now you are on your way to Torindan? Something’s missing from your story.”
She shrugged. “There’s not much else.”
He touched her arm, and a tingle ran down her spine. “I’ve an idea you’ve left out the important part.”
She gazed at him, helpless to look away, drowning in emotion. Was this how Hael had felt when he’d looked at her so strangely? If so, he had her pity. Oh, but this made no sense. Why should a stranger stir her when Hael did not? Rohan had said love might grow between them, but if this was indeed that tender emotion, they’d never have found it together. She couldn’t imagine feeling this way about Rohan nor picture him allowing himself to fall prey to this aching restlessness.
Rand lowered his head, his breath feathering her cheek. His lips brushed hers.
She quivered, torn between delight and outrage. He shouldn’t do this, nor should she let him. A sigh escaped her.
