HER SOLO IS A DEATH SENTENCE
Deep within the world of Leira flows a melody that was sung at the beginning of time by Emhran, the Master Singer. Now it is broken, buried, forgotten. But in each generation, a Songkeeper arises to uphold the memory of the Song against those who want it silenced forever.
When Birdie first hears the Song coming from her own mouth, her world shatters. She is no longer simply an orphan but the last of a hunted people. Forced to flee for her life, she must decide whom to trust—a traveling peddler, a streetwise thief, or a mysterious creature who claims to know her past.
With enemies at her heels and war threatening to tear her homeland apart, Birdie soon discovers an overwhelming truth: the fate of Leira may hinge on one orphan’s Song.

– Wayne Thomas Batson, Best Selling Author of The Door Within Trilogy
“The world in ORPHAN’S SONG was beautiful and wild and dangerous, and I loved it. It felt somehow natural, and not even put on display like many fantasy worlds; it was all there, but neither over-stressed, nor too much in the background.”
– Amazon Review
“What sets this book into the 5 star range is the beauty of the writing. Some books try to be fancy with words and descriptions and it becomes distracting. Gillian has a wonderful touch of giving evocative description and showing that flows along with everything in the book. The pictures she creates with her words elevates this from any standard fantasy.”
