|Plot Summary of Six Of Swords|
|"Irissa, a young witch, finds herself abandoned by her people, and stranded on a dying planet with a young resentful knight, and a sarcastic old cat (who is magical, of course!). As she searches for a gate to the world her people have escaped to, she learns to control the magic inside of her, and at the same time "coming into her own" as a woman. As she and the knight learn to trust each other, they soon realize there are few others to depend on. In the end Irissa must choose between her relationship with Kendric- the rough, but endearing knight; and her people in the new world. "
