Details about A Queen of Gilded Horns by Amanda Joy
A Queen of Gilded Horns by Amanda Joy – Instead of the sacred noshai, each clutched a bit of spare wood left over from the older children’s lessons in their sticky palms. The noshai trees, the tallest and most ancient of all the beings who dwelled in the North, only grew in the A’Nir Mountains north of Myre’s borders. It was a curious thing, how many. In millennia past, the wild fey who dwelled in these mountains offered noshai saplings to the first Queens who ruled most of Akhimar, both north of the river and south of it. Back when the realm was known by just one name, instead of the three nations it was split into now. Yet the noshai trees rarely thrived in the South, so the tradition became the offering of a charm of protection carved from the trees. In the centuries since it had been forgotten, until the Tribe fled Myre after the Great War and adapted the tradition, making carvings of their own.
