Summary
When the wizard Wayland North brings rain to the drought-stricken village that is home to Sydelle, the elders offer him any reward. Syd is shocked to learn he has chosen to have her accompany him on a dangerous journey. Their travel is difficult and plagued with mysterious events, and North is clearly keeping secrets from her, but their mission is to prevent a war. As Syd learns more about wizardry and magic, she begins to suspect that one of North’s secrets is about her.
Critique
The perfect mix of magic, suspense, adventure, secrets, and romance. This debut novel is beautifully written; the fantasy element is not overbearing or complicated; and the interactions between Sydelle and North are often hilarious. This book is simply good, clean fun and impossible to put down. Highly recommend
