Seer, healer, goddess, slave–she is all these things and more.

Yim is a young woman suddenly cast into slavery, a gifted seer with a shocking secret–and a great destiny. Honus is a Sarf, a warrior dedicated to the service of the compassionate goddess Karm. A Sarf’s sole purpose is to serve a holy person called a Bearer. But Honus’ s Bearer has been killed by the minions of an evil god known only as the Devourer. Masterless and needing someone to bear his pack, Honus purchases Yim for the price of ten coppers–and their fates are forever entwined.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad This was an interesting read the writer takes you to a fictional world of Gods, Seers, Sarfs and bearers. This book was a little confusing to follow I found myself always referring to the map at the beginning of the book in order to keep track with Yim and Honus’s journey. The characters are very well developed but the story progress was slow for me. I found it a pretty good read and would recommend it to readers who enjoy historical and fantasy books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait for the sequel!! (The Chapters-Indigo website has been deleting my ratings so: I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars/leaves.) I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I can't wait for the sequel! It was a fine tale of two individuals who, unbeknownst to them, are fated to meet and whose meeting and existence is probably the last hope for a world that is facing probable destruction through the malign influence of a god or 'essence' known only as the Devourer. In general, I was thoroughly entertained and engaged by what, for me, was an original and engaging story. What I will say is that if you don't like to be frightened, you might want to avoid this one as there are some truly 'spooky' moments. Otherwise however, I recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I never even heard of Morgan Howell until I picked up his Queen of the Orc Series. I was blown away by those books, they're on my list of favorites, so when I picked up A Woman Worth Ten Coppers, I had high expectations and was not disappointed. I absolutely devoured this book and I cannot wait for the next installment in this trilogy.
