|Plot Summary of The Healer's Keep|
Years have passed since King Kareed waged war on bellandra, but still the people remember. Now, Torina and Landen's daughter, Saravelda, has been chosen to seek the legendary Healer's keep of Bellandra. Desperately trying to fit it, Saravelda keeps her royal identity a secret, calling herself Sara, and mingling with the other students as though she were another commoner. Within saravelda lies a power almost legendary.
At night, strange dark creatures stalk saravelda in her dreams, while a young man, Dorjan, tries to fight them off. For that is Dorjan's gift; his family have the rare ability to enter another's dreams and shape the situation. But another girl walks in Dorjan's sleep, a sister whom he has never known. She seeks his help in combatting the evil of Lord Morlen, an old foe of their family.
Together, Dorjan and Saravelda must fight this threat.
