c2011. Set in the same world as the Stonecasters trilogy and a generation on. Ash, now the prowman, makes an appearance but the story really revolves around Ember - the daughter of Martine and Arvid and Ash - who, although being named after the 'old' Ash, spurns the Power of Water. The story entails a journey (of course) and multiple POVs again. Story was good, pacy and just enough of the old characters to make it easy to get into. Certainly, do not depend on Ms Freeman to give you a standard ending - and whilst not a shock ending - not quite what I was hoping for. Certainly on the lines of Bramble and Acton, though.
