Journeys: The Archers of Saint Sebastian by Jeanne Roland
15-year-old Marieke is as obsessed
with the archers’ guild of Saint Sebastian as everyone else in Ardennes. Here twelve
of the best and most beautiful young Journeyman
archers compete every year for a coveted spot on the prince’s bodyguard. But when Marieke flees to the
guild for refuge, there are only two things she really knows about the place.
One is that a mysterious accident ended her own father’s chances as a Journey.
The other? There are no women allowed inside Saint Sebastian’s.
Disguising herself as a boy to infiltrate the guild means embarking on a dangerous deception. But when the charming Journeyman Tristan takes her under his wing as his squire, Marieke’s got to stay – at least long enough to help him beat out his brutal arch-rival to win the competitions. Keeping her identity a secret will be hard. Living in close quarters with a pack of gorgeous boys? That will be harder still. But the hardest thing of all will be keeping the vow she makes for herself: to see Tristan become the next Guardsman, without ever letting him find out she’s a girl who loves him.
