Grant, Kelley  
Desert Rising
At the Temple, pledges are paired with giant sacred cats, and instructed to serve the One's four capricious deities. Yet Sulis has a different perspective - one that might be considered heresy, but is catching on rather quickly. Meanwhile, after her twin Kadar falls in love with a woman from a Forsaken caste, he is willing to risk anything to get these people to freedom. But with war about to break out, change may not come as easily as either twin hopes.
