Summary
"A dark power called the Talisman, born of ignorance and persecution, has risen in the land. Led by a man known only as the One-Eyed Preacher, it is a cruel and terrifying movement bent on world domination--a superstitious patriarchy that suppresses knowledge and subjugates women. And it is growing. But there are those who fight the Talisman's spread, including the Companions of Hira, a diverse group of influential women whose power derives from the Claim--the magic inherent in the words of a sacred scripture. Foremost among them is Arian and her fellow warrior, Sinnia, skilled fighters who are knowledgeable in the Claim. This daring pair have long stalked Talisman slave-chains, searching for clues and weapons to help them battle their enemy's oppressive ways. Now they may have discovered a miraculous symbol of hope that can destroy the One-Eyed Preacher and his fervid followers: the Bloodprint, a dangerous text the Talisman has tried to erase from the world. Finding the Bloodprint promises to be their most perilous undertaking yet, an arduous journey that will lead them deep into Talisman territory. Though they will be helped by allies--a loyal boy they freed from slavery and a man that used to be both Arian's confidant and sword master--Arian and Sinnia know that this mission may well be their last."--Amazon.com

Summary
As members of the order of the Companions of Hira, warriors Arian and Sinnia fight the oppressive Talisman regime, led by the One-Eyed Preacher. Their best chance of defeating their foes lies with a sacred text known as "The Bloodprint," which the regime has banned and ruthlessly suppressed. Can the women locate a copy before it's too late? Canadian author Ausma Zehanat Khan introduces strong female protagonists and a well-realized setting reminiscent of the Middle East in this opening volume of the Khorasan Archives. -- Description by Gillian Speace
