Elrod continues his presentation of Kayda with Chapter 4:
Trials of a Warrior
Kayda is struggling to keep up with her lessons, but it isn't just the ridiculous course load assigned to her at Whateley that is getting her down. Two of her toughest teachers are inside her head, pushing her to master the wisdom of the ancestors and the spirits. And that homework can't be checked with a quick look at the answer table in the back of the book.
As Kayda adjusts to life at Whateley, she finds many challenges. Misunderstandings with her cottage-mates, a schedule that seems designed to drive her nuts, and security challenges are among her worries, but she's starting to think about how to succeed, and her buffalo spirit is ensuring she's getting tutoring from animal spirits to drive home the lessons - even if she doesn't want to learn them.
