"Once the trusted aide to powerful military commander Kyros, freeborn Lauria hunted down his escaped slaves. But during a mission to infiltrate the bandit tribe known as the Alashi, Lauria's loyalties shifted. When her identity was discovered, she was cast out by both sides. Now Lauria is determined to regain the trust of the Alashi, and with the help of her blood-sister Tamar, liberate those she once returned to captivity. But they cannot accomplish the daunting task alone. Desperate for a spell-chain to free a mine slave, Lauria turns to her enemies -- the Sisterhood of Weavers -- and apprentices herself to a sorceress. But learning to harness magic will come at a greater price than she ever imagined"--P. [4] of cover.

If you are a fan of Mercedes Lackey's Tarma and Kethry stories, then I think you'll enjoy this book. Freedom's Apprentice is about the adventures of Lauria and Tamar, two friends on a mission to free slaves in Greek-occupied Central Asia. Most of the book is straightforward action-adventure, but elements of magic also play a role in the story at times.

/I don't know why there is a picture on the cover of a half-naked woman stringing beads. Lauria does make a beaded necklace (a "spell chain") in the book, but this takes place in the dead of winter, and she keeps all her clothes on as she works.

Violence: There are some gruesome deaths, and at a couple points characters eat some disgusting tainted food.
