I need help identifying a fantasy novel i read in the late 90s, about a woman with a magic gold hand?
In 98 or so I read a hardback fantasy novel that I can't remember the author or title for.
It featured a warrior woman who was captured by the big bad, and sent to his prison / mine. The Big Bad would lop off a limb of each of the prisoners, then force them to mine some magical golden material.
The main character woman was apparently a mage of some sort as well, and she managed to scrape up enough of the raw golden material to form herself a new hand out of it. Armed with her hand she manages to escape!
