The Last Priestess: The Songmaker #1
Maegwin is a Sho La priestess who returns from a retreat to find her temple on fire and her sister priestesses being burned alive. She kills the son of Lord Hounsey before being taken prisoner. Sentenced to death...well, here it gets interesting. Maegwin survives her hanging with a little help from the dark side of her goddess and swears vengeance on those responsible for the deaths of her sisters.
The kingdom is set for civil war. The Songmaker and his mages are gathering a rebel contingent. The king and his mages, especially Rovann, the king's First Mage prepare to defend the kingdom from chaos.
