Herbalist and Potion Master
I heard about what happened to Sodden hill and my heart goes out to you. I wish that I could be there to help, but there is even graver business to the north that requires my attention. You’ve been ready for a while, and I’m sorry I never got the time to give you full schooling. Please take this book and use it well. It has most of my recipes and I have no doubt you will add to it. You must guard it carefully, although it can only be used properly by those with the touch. You have the touch, I’ve known this since I first lay eyes on you twelve years ago. Be careful about advertising your talent – not many take kindly to witchcraft. I hope I get to see you soon, but if I don’t and you get into trouble, look for the grove of the seven sisters. You can trust Penelope – she’ll know what to do. Whatever you do, don’t trust a man named Armagile, or any other Shadow Dancers. They’re the reason I’m here, and can’t leave this book in the northernlands. I miss you dear, and I am proud of the woman I know you will become.
