Trackers by Kathryn Mackel

Taking a break from cookie baking and present making to tell you about Kathryn Mackel's latest novel, Trackers. The Birthrighter camp of Horesh is in disarray after the events of Outriders. Timothy longs to rescue Dawnray, a village girl held captive by Baron Alrod. Niki is keeping back an important letter from the camp leader, Brady. Ajoba is still in disgrace after being deceived and betraying the camp.

Meanwhile, Baron Alrod begins rebuilding his army with the help of his new head sorcerer and the now-demoted Ghedo makes his own plans for revenge.

Mackel delivers another heart-pounding adventure with a bit more palace intrigue. The interesting blend of futuristic science fiction/fantasy works as a perfect backdrop for the deep characters and plot events.

I wish I had more time to tell you about this great book, but I need to get back to Christmas preparations. But the blogs below offer much more info:

Katie, you really are a pro at reviews. You can say so much in such a short space.

BTW, are you doing your review newsletter? I didn't sign up for it before because I have your blog on bloglines, but it's wigged out on me (sort of like Beta Blogger--suddenly I can't comment)--I can't see my subscriptions.

Anyway, I'd like to keep up with your reviews.

Hi Katie,
So I heard a rumor that there won't be a third book in this series...do you know for sure?
Thanks,
Ruth
