Ylmi’s Saga (The Legends of Karik Book 2) by Evan Oliver
Ylmi Bodvarsdottir grew up in the mountains, forced to live with her parents beyond the protection of their village. But when the harsh crags and windy slopes did not kill her, she grew stronger. Together with her friend Thora and her mentor Dranri, she learned much before she met Karik, and began to walk the path of legends. The slaying of a dragon was only the first step, and many other adventures befell her as she grew into her own, and became known as Ylmi One-eye.
