Overview

Sometimes, rebellion is the only option.

In the sheltered village of Silver Hollow, Keara knows exactly what is expected of her: Worship the twelve gods, pay the Primate his head tax, and follow her mother's unreasonably strict rules. But Keara's twelfth birthday is looming, along with an obligation she dares not meet. Keara must sacrifice her darkbeast on a holy altar or be branded a heretic forever.

Other children despise their bonded scapegoat animals. But Keara loves her raven, Caw. He's the only creature in Silver Hollow who truly understands her headstrong ways.

When a traveling theater troupe passes through the village, Keara glimpses a way to escape. But the Great Road comes with its own dangers, including dread Inquisitor priests who hunt down infidels.

Will Keara find the strength to flee the only home she's ever known? Or will she be forced to slay her closest friend on the altar of the gods?

This is a coming of age story wrapped in a science fantasy world. I can easily 'see' the villages and cities the author richly describes. I was quickly caught up in the story and so anxious about how Keara would survive that I didn't see the surprise ending.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely loved reading this story about Vala, her pet darkbeast Caw - and their fight for freedom. I can't wait for the next book!
