By day, Lauricia Matuska is a mild-mannered teacher of high school literature and creative writing. By night she is a clandestine writer, fighting battles against time and responsibility to steal precious moments in which to compose the next pages of her current novel-in-progress. An avid reader of fantasy literature since the age of ten, her desire to write manifested in middle school but was buried under the well-meant warnings of concerned adults. Her freshman year in college began with courses in honors English and remedial college algebra. Two semesters of immense success in my literature classes and abysmal failure in remedial math convinced her that she was not designed to be a scientist, so she changed her major and returned to her first love.
The Healer's Runeby Lauricia Matuska
Three hundred years after a great war shattered the Council of Races, the warriors of Rüddan have all but eradicated their cousins, the faerie Aethel. In so doing, they decimated the Dryht sages and enslaved mortal Humanity. Now a young voice with a dangerous secret calls her people to rebel. Young Sabine, one of the Human slaves, must overcome centuries of lies and prejudice to forge an alliance among four enemy races. But what chance does Sabine have when her very existence threatens the planet?

This book was amazing! I can't wait to read more from Lauricia! Heart stopping action! Great story line! Couldn't stop reading it!
This was phenomenal! Lauricia's world is rich and vivid, with a rich history that still has yet to be uncovered by the reader fully. Her writing is excellent and will draw in the reader and have them mourning any moment that they need to put it down for the 'real world'. I absolutely can't wait for the next book and to learn what will happen to Sabine next, and what choices she will need to make. I was glued to the pages in fearful anticipation of what would happen next, and I am sure that the next book will be even more intense! Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys fantasy. I grew up reading and loving the Dragonlance series, and in my opinion, this book rivals the series. It is excellent.
I was completely lost in Sabine's world from the first few pages. I loved this story and cannot wait for the next in the series!! Lauricia Matuska is a brilliant writer, whose style is a rare find indeed! Looking forward to more by this author!
