Overview

In a province where magic is forbidden and its possessors are murdered by the cruel Praetor, young Ilan, born with the powerful gift of her ancestors, has only one hope for survival. Concealment. In the shadow of Dimmingwood, she finds temporary protection with a band of forest brigands led by the infamous outlaw Rideon the Red Hand.

But as Ilan matures, learns the skills of survival, and struggles to master the inherent magic of her dying race, danger is always close behind. When old enemies reappear and new friendships lead to betrayal, will her discovery of an enchanted bow prove to be Ilan’s final salvation or her ultimate downfall?

* * * * *

When I was small, my mother taught me about the magickless—evil men who hunted our kind to destroy us. They came from across the water to steal the lands of our ancestors. Pretending to want peace, they enslaved us and sought to extinguish what they couldn’t possess, the one thing their harsh laws could never control. Our ancient powers. One day, my mother warned me, violence would shatter the safety of our home, and when that day came, we must fight. And we must win.

Very rarely do I stop reading a book. This is unfortunately one of those times...and it saddens me. The book is written well enough, but it just didnt hold my interest. I really did not like the main character, which allowed me to become disconnected from the story. Eventually I just gave up. Perhaps if I could have seen it through to the end, I would have a better review; but such is not the case. My apologies.

I just finished the ebook and it was a good quick read. The story kept me interested. Only down fall was it was a little slow towards the end. Im interested in reading the second book to see what happens next.

If your into fantasy, this is a very good series! I amost gave it up at one point thinking it was another re-write of Robin Hood. If you think the same keep on reading!

Very well written story. So much tragedy in a young girl's start to life. Can't wait to read the rest of the series to see how her rough start affects the rest of her life

slow but an author needs to develop the character at first, so it's not surprising. I'll probably buy the 2nd just to see what happens...if nothing significant.......we'll see

I really liked the story, the characters were definatley strong individuals. She went through so much so early in life and her world is about to blossom.

I received the free ebook and was initially a little leary and boy was I wrong. This is definitely worth a pick up. Can't wait to read book 2.

This book was a refreshing change of pace, as well as realms. It isn't often that I have a hard time putting a book down, but this book was hard to put down. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
