In the first episode of a brand-new podcast, “Nameless1,” Daniel Gaghan covers a number of female characters in his “Women in Fantasy Review.” The first book he tackles is none other than Marked for Death, my first Eberron novel. (The next one up is Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, and you can’t ask for better company than that.)
Daniel talks about the three main females in Marked for Death: Esprë, Sallah, and Te’oma. He’s particularly fond of Te’oma, a flawed but powerful woman. I wonder how he’ll feel about her when he gets to reading The Queen of Death? While I didn’t intend it at the outset, the Lost Mark Trilogy is, in many ways, Te’oma’s tale.
