Family, Loyalty, and War collide in this fantasy adventure.

Summary:

Eelyn (17) was raised to be a warrior. She fights alongside her fellow Aska clansmen against their rivals, the Rika and Herja. During a recent battle, Eelyn spotted her brother Ire. Not only is he not dead (she watched die five years earlier) but he is a warrior in an enemy clan, fighting against his family. When the Herja Warriors launch a ruthless attack against Riki, Eelyn becomes determined to bring the two clans together. She succeeds, in part, because she is rescued from near-death by Fiske, a Riki clansman. Eelyn doesn't trust Fiske but over time finds herself fighting her love for her brother's friend. 


BTSYA / Teen Reader (16):
I would give this book a ten out of ten. It was so really good and I liked it from beginning to end. Because it was very interesting, I finished it really fast. I finished it really fast because of how interesting it was. This is a fantasy adventure and a romance that is told in a very visual way. I was able to picture the war and everything. It has some big vocabulary words, so I recommend it to a person who is 13 or older.
