In the third volume of the Obernewtyn Chronicles, Elspeth Gordie risks her life to seal an alliance between the secret Misfit community at Obernewtyn and rebel forces hiding out in the capital and to uncover the truth about how and why the Beforetimers destroyed their world. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
Reminiscent of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover novels, Obernewtyn introduced Isobelle Carmody as a writer to watch, and began a series of novels to entice and enthrall readers of all ages.

The Farseekers continued the saga of Obernewtyn and its band of Misfits, children outcast from society because of their psychic abilities, and the story of their heroic leader Elspeth Gordie, who alone carried the fate of the world on her shoulders.

Elspeth’s adventures continue as she tries to seal an alliance between the secret Misfit community at Obernewtyn, and the rebel forces rumored to be hiding in the capital, right under the noses of the dreaded totalitarian Council.

Elspeth travels from the mountains reluctantly, for at any moment the long-awaited summons may come to find and destroy the dormant weaponmachines left by the Beforetimers. Her journey will take her far beyond the borders of the Land, across the sea and into the heart of the mysterious desert region of Sador. Here she discovers that she cannot destroy the weaponmachines alone—she needs the help of the Sadorians.

But before she can complete her dark quest, Elspeth must learn the truth of her dreams: She must understand why the Beforetimers destroyed their world . . .
