The Thirteenth Tower by Sara C. Snider
I took my time reading this book. It was a good story, I quite enjoyed it. Corran was an interesting character. When something happened I wasn't expecting what it turned out to be. But I like the way the memories worked. While I like Emelyn as a character. I think Cobbe was my favorite, her and the hunter-bird.
I want to know where Emelyn goes from here. Same with Aldren. Maybe there'll be a book two. For now I'm happy with the ending.
