A triad of female warriors bound together as a family, committed in union to one another and to the two males who are staying at home in their village. This is the tale of their adventures; their training and bonding while becoming the personal staff of the Empress of their Motherland.
A Cold North Wind
In this matriarchial society, the women are the rulers, the warriors, the healers, and the men stay home to raise the children, keep the gardens, stock and homes.
Multipartnered marriages are the normal not the unusual. It is, however, unusual for a Priestess/healer to be bound in a committed relationship to two Warriors marked for the Empress' service.
This is the story of the triad learning how to function as a joined Warrior Triad. Their adventures begin with their bonding ceremony in the middle of a blizzard.
from part 18: Scar and Marget repeated her actions leaving from other directions out of the camp. Beatrace and Wolf continued to search through the leavings of the camp. Beatrace found off to the side a tiny box made in the shape of a dragon and filled with some white powder. There were other things too, that told her the trader that frequented the area had been present in this camp. She took all of the items that might be of use and added them to the already full satchel.
When she was satisfied that there were no other items of use or medicinal herbs of value in the area, she whispered to Wolf. "Find Areesa, Wolf." and then she mounted with difficulty and sat watching Wolf search for the scent. She called to Sonia, Chrylsa, Marget and Scar as she saw Wolf find the scent she had searched for. She kicked her horse and held tight as the horse raced to the north, following instincts.
