Book One in the Blade Dancer series.

Emerging from an ancient civil war with only a patchwork of once-powerful technologies, the Qurls are threatened by new weapons in the hands of old enemies. Driven by the guilt of a comradeís death, Mikial reaches out through her own divided heritage to discover the humans behind the guns. The one enemy she didnít expect to face was her own people. The one ally she didnít plan on being saved by was human.
