9780756403669: The Silver Lake: Book One of the Warriors of Estavia

In Anavatan, the city of the Silver Lake, the gods manifest on a regular basis. But if you are among the unpledged, it is hard to survive, especially during the three-night-long chaos known as Havo's Dance. When Havo's storms sweep through Anavatan, anyone who is unaffiliated had best find a safe place to hide or they risk madness or death. But this year, three young street orphans have been chosen for special attention by Incasa, the god of prophecy.When that God's dice roll during the height of Havo's Dance, these three boys-thieves and con artists-will discover their destinies. One will be bound by a life-or-death pledge that will see him marked as the future Champion of the War God, another forced to walk a perilous road as he seeks to master his talent as a seer, and the last will be cast forth from the city and claimed by the hungry spirits seeking a way into Anavatan and the precious power contained in the Silver Lake.

About the Author:

Fiona Patton lives on seventy-five acres of rural Ontario scrubland with her partner Tanya Huff, six cats, and one tiny little dog. She has written more than twenty short stories ranging from heroic fantasy to horror to science fiction, as well as fantasy novels The Stone Prince, The Painter Knight, The Granite Shield, and The Golden Sword.

From Booklist:

Anavatan's six gods emerged in time past remembering from the heart of Gol-Beyaz, the Silver Lake. They protect the city and surroundings with a magical wall that excludes raiders and the spirits of the plains that are drawn to Gol-Beyaz. It is the time called Havo's Dance--three nights of chaos, great winds, and powerful storms. Best to find shelter before sunset. Seeking cover, two orphaned thieves, Spar and his protective companion, Brax, are set upon by rivals Graize and Drove. Plains spirits who have breached the wall attack all four, immediately killing Drove. Brax calls on the goddess of battle, Estavia, promising his service and his life, and she appears, saving the three survivors and naming Brax her newest champion. Meanwhile, the god of chance examines the possibilities the night has birthed, curtailing some and allowing others. Very soon, Spar and Graize will change their world unimaginably. One will be a prophet, one a charismatic madman. The best aspect of this explosive series opener is Patton's take on relations between gods and men. Paula Luedtke
