Jame learns that war banners splattered with their owners' blood also have trapped their souls and must also deal with an unwanted admirer at school and a threat on her life, all while, of course, causing plenty of unintended havoc. Original.

Simon and Schuster
When Jame returned to Knorth hall to help her brother Torisen name all the fallen fighters’ death banners stored there, she made the disturbing discovery that those banners splattered with their owners’ blood also have trapped their owners’ souls. She also found a contract proving her cousin Kindrie to be legitimate, proving that there are three full-blooded Knorth. Three full-blooded Knorth means that the Three-Faced God can be manifested—something that none of the three are likely to want to do, if they have any choice in the matter. . 

     Returning with this unwelcome knowledge to school at Tentir, Jame continued to dodge the attentions of an unwanted admirer, strengthen her link to her feline hunting ounce, work with the rathorn colt Death’s-head to insure that it doesn’t resume its attempts to kill her, and, of course, kept causing plenty of unintended havoc. She also had to help fight off attacks from hillmen, repel a stampede of yarkcarn (think warthogs the size of mammoths), fight in the Winter War (a mock conflict—or, at least, that’s how it was supposed to be), and solve the mystery behind the death of her evil uncle, who somehow is still spectrally manifesting himself in nasty ways. 

     No doubt about it—Jame is back, and with a vengeance, as the popular and critically-praised fantasy adventure series continues.

"P.C. Hodgell writes the most strikingly weird and wonderful stories in epic fantasy today."—Charles Stross

Good characters, good dialog, dry humor, interesting philosophical dilemmas, and fine language. Plots and internal references challenge reader to pay attention and draw conclusions about cause-and-effect relationships on their own -- no spoon feeding from the author here!

Only about 1/3 of this author's work is readable,for me. For every page where something understandable actually happens, there are 3 pages of .. thoughts? memories? strange characters wandering in and out who may or may not exist etc. It's like one of those Hong Kong movies when the action's fun when it happens, you don't understand much and can't take too much of that, eventually.
