T-B-R Thursday (2)

It's T-B-R Thursday once again!


This is the day of the I add a book to my To-Be-Read pile, which is growing by leaps and bounds. I have very eclectic tastes when it comes to books. You might find a romance, a bestseller or even a classic adding to my pile each week. I noticed this book while I was looking at some of favorite book blogs. I'm not sure which one had this book on the sidebar, but I was intrigued.

This week's book is: A Woman Worth Ten Coppers by Morgan Howell. This is the first book in the Shadowed Path Series. We meet Yim a gifted seer, who is suddenly cast into slavery.

Here is the synopsis taken from Barnes & Noble:

Synopsis

Seer, healer, goddess, slave–she is all these things and more.

Yim is a young woman suddenly cast into slavery, a gifted seer with a shocking secret–and a great destiny. Honus is a Sarf, a warrior dedicated to the service of the compassionate goddess Karm. A Sarf’s sole purpose is to serve a holy person called a Bearer. But Honus’s Bearer has been killed by the minions of an evil god known only as the Devourer. Masterless and needing someone to bear his pack, Honus purchases Yim for the price of ten coppers–and their fates are forever entwined.
