"You worship a God. With a Power, you negotiate."-- Black Kath's Tally Book
When Marta's sorceress mother dies suddenly, it is the young and almost completely unprepared Marta who must assume the debt her mother owed to the Power called Amaet.
With her mother's own magical servants in revolt and opportunistic enemies on the move, matters go from bad to worse. Armed only with her knowledge of the First Law and her mother's tally book, Marta would count herself lucky to survive, never mind contend face to face with a Power. Yet contend she must, provided, of course, she can stay alive long enough.
Set five hundred years after the events in The Long Look, Black Kath's Daughter is the story of a different sort of magician in search of her own destiny, and the kind of life her mother never had.
