The Traitor and the Chalice
The Traitor and the Chalice by Jane Fletcher
Tevi and Jemeryl, soldier and sorcerer, are sworn to the service of the Protectorate of Lyremouth, the greatest civilization the world has known, and will risk all to ensure its survival. Yet a traitor is working to uncover a long hidden secret that will destroy the Protectorate and threaten the lives of its citizens. The two women are sent to hunt down the traitor and retrieve the chalice that can bestow such dangerous powers.
Without allies to help them, Tevi and Jemeryl will need to rely totally on each other; something made all the more difficult when the rest of the world seems intent on pulling them apart. Events will force them to re-evaluate their assumptions about society and their places in it. Difficult choices wait them, even as they battle for their lives.
