Overview

The initiation ceremony is the gateway to ultimate power...or death.

A DETERMINED GIRL

Dindi can't do anything right, maybe because she spends more time dancing with pixies than doing her chores. Her clan hopes to marry her off and settle her down, but she dreams of becoming a Tavaedi, one of the powerful warrior-dancers whose secret magics are revealed only to those who pass a mysterious Test during the Initiation ceremony.

The problem? No-one in Dindi's clan has ever passed the Test. Her grandmother died trying. But Dindi has a plan...

AN EXILED WARRIOR

Kavio is the most powerful warrior-dancer in Faearth, but when he is exiled from the tribehold for a crime he didn't commit, he decides to shed his old life. If roving cannibals and hexers don't kill him first, this is his chance to escape the shadow of his father's wars and his mother's curse. But when he rescues a young Initiate girl, he finds himself drawn into as deadly a plot as any he left behind.

He must decide whether to walk away or fight for her... assuming she would even accept the help of an exile.

    Great beginning to the series.

    Initiate by Tara Maya is the first book in the Unfinished Song series. It's approximately 188 pages long. This book introduces us to several characters but the main two are Dindi and Kavio. Dindi is a bit of a klutz. She often gets things wrong but the one thing she loves to do is dance. She wants so desperately to become a Tavaedi, which is a warrior dancer who is very powerful. Her only option is to get married. Dindi doesn't want that so she practices day and night to become the first dancer in her tribe. Dindi is also very unique because she can see pixies. Kavio is the son of a chief. He is blamed and exiled for a crime that he didn't commit and is sent out to wander the world. Kavio accepts his fate gracefully. Kavio is brave and also very clever.
    The story is told from multiple points-of-view, not only between Dindi and Kavio but several other key players in this book. This helps build the story and also the world in which Dindi and Kavio live. Their world is somewhat primitive but also very fascinating. Fair warning, the ending to Initiate stops unexpectedly. It also ended in a way that was unexpected. However it does make you want to start reading the second book in the series as soon as possible. While most of Initiate is a fairly clean read it has some violent scenes. I would recommend this book for an older audience.
