First book of Sanyel series.
At fifteen, Sanyel is as good as dead. In defiance of strict tribal and religious law, Sanyel’s shaman father has been covertly training her in the secret knowledge and rituals of the medicine man, sacred practices prohibited to females. Betrayal by her best friend leads to Sanyel’s banishment to the unforgiving Desert of Bones, the equivalent of a death sentence.
The savage desert cruelly tests Sanyel’s will to survive and she begins to question her father’s belief in portents that surrounded her birth.
Second book of Sanyel series.
Owning a keen wit and intelligence, an ability to control animals, and following a life path unusual for a female in her male-dominated culture, sixteen-year-old shaman Sanyel is building a reputation in her small corner of the world as a formidable adversary and ally.
When a former foe arrives to ask Sanyel for help in rescuing his son from a madwoman’s cult, she has every right to be wary.

BONES OF THE GODS
