As a child, Rook had been taken in by the bards of Luly, and raised as one of their own. Of his past he knew nothing -- except faint memories of fire and death that he'd do anything to forget. But nightmares, and a new threat to the island that had become his own, would not let him escape the dreaded fate of his true family. Haunted by the music of the bards, he left the only home he knew to wander the land of the power-hungry basilisk who had destroyed his family. And perhaps, finally, to find a future in the fulfillment of his forgotten destiny.

My favorite of her wonderful tales - rich in background and imagination (the musical instruments and composer particularly well drawn) - well plotted, not relying overly upon magic for effects and outcome - both magic and trauma are equally jarring to all concerned - and a very welcome reminder at the end that humanity is often misjudged for good or ill.
