"I am assigning a guardian to ward you. His name is Roman. . . ." Thus begins Surchatain Karel's explanation to his daughter, ten-year-old Chataine Deirdre, as to why her life is about to change dramatically. Karel's small country, Lystra, possesses the only navigable river on the southern coast of the Continent. The provinces that surround Lystra want its river trade, and will do anything to gain it-even kill the heir to the throne. So, hand selecting the most capable and trustworthy soldier he can find, Karel places her life in his keeping. Willful and spoiled, Deirdre sees this guardian only as another servant. She teases and abuses him as he places his life on the line for her day after day, year after year. Deirdre does not know at what point she begins to love him. But Roman knows from the very beginning that to love her will mean his death. The Annals of Lystra begin with Chataine's Guardian, continue in Stone of Help, and conclude in Liberation of Lystra. This 20th anniversary edition of Chataine's Guardian conatins new material and previews of Robins's other novels. Robin Hardy is the author of the Streiker Saga, the Sammy Series, Padre, and Nicole of Prie Mer: Book One of the Latter Annals of Lystra. She is also the editor of W.W. Melton's classic devotional, Sifted But Saved. For photos, articles, guest features, and updates on new releases and reprints, visit Robin's website at www.robinhardy.com.
