I have always wanted to go on an extensive, physically challenging vacation with a group of close friends. Maybe not while somebody with serious paranormal powers was trying to kill me...

This book is a sequel, but also works as a stand-alone, to Bowling's Homecoming, which I also read and loved. A YA fantasy - the main character, Roi, is about 18 or so, as are his three best friends. It's very much a coming of age story, and for those who enjoy Mercedes Lackey (I'm a big fan) this type of story

Born in Connecticut, raised in Kansas, BA in Physics at Harvard, MS and PhD on geophysics at University of Alaska Fairbanks. On faculty at UAF (Geophysical Institute) until retirement, now writing science fiction. My SF is very much about people (human or not) and their interactions in societies that comment subtly on our own.
