"Nobody but the old wise-woman knows what truly happened to Aissa, the firstborn daughter of the priestess. If they saw the half-moon scars on the servant girl's wrists they would find it out, but who would look twice at lowly, mute No-Name? Only the Lady's cats, and the fireflies summoned by her silent song. Then the soldiers of Crete come, demanding children as tribute for their god-king's bull dances, and Aissa is determined to take destiny into her own scarred hands. A gripping Bronze-Age fantasy from award-winning author Wendy Orr." --
"Mute since the traumatic raider attack that took her foster family, Aissa struggles for survival in a mythical Bronze-Age Crete. Although she is forced into the lowliest position among the servants of her island's priestess, Aissa's mysterious bond with animals and the scars on her wrists are clues to her true identity as the priestess' firstborn daughter"--Provided by publisher.
