The first-born heir to her father's kingdom, Latera enjoys the charmed life of being a princess. Her life of privilege comes to an abrupt end, though, when she's swept away from her home and becomes lost in the realm of Faerie. For the next six years, she lives in obscurity as a stable girl - until she's summoned to the court of Asherah, the Faerie Queen, and eventually joins her army of demon-killers in a valiant effort to protect her new homeland. Thrust in the middle of an escalating war against marauding demon hordes, will she find the courage to meet her destiny...? With a gripping storyline and compelling action, Rise Of The Deva'shi is an engaging fantasy epic. Skillfully crafted by author Jennifer Allis Provost, this grand, sweeping tale of mystic splendor is sure to please fans of well developed, imaginative thrillers. In Latera, Provost has created quite the sympathetic protagonist: a tragic figure with the best of intentions but often the worst of luck - but one who nonetheless perseveres and is ultimately redeemed by no less than the sheer force of her will. As such, she serves as an inspiring figure for anyone who finds themselves similarly thrust in the middle of the darkest of circumstances, her very life an encouraging reminder that what matters more than the challenges that befall us is the character that we display in the face of them. Holistically entertaining, Rise Of The Deva'shi takes the reader on an enjoyable ride through a lush fantasy world sure to leave an indelible impression long after the last page has been turned.

This book is terrific. The characters are strong yet easy to fall in love with and others are easy to hate and there were definately times in the book where my mind would scream at the book like one yells at the television. This book is absolutely riveting. I cannot wait for the other chronicles to come out. Kudos to the author on her first but OUTSTANDING book. If this is just her first, I cannot wait to see the others. She has outstanding ideas and the twists and turns are amazing!!!!!!!!!!
