This book was first reviewed by Kurt's Frontier under Invincible Love of Reading. Synopsis:  Princess Irewen Donríel was not prepared for what was coming. She was a girl who spent her life in court being doted on by her father, the King of Dargon. Her father was murdered; his heart ripped from his chest. Then her cousin, Elthad, betrays her and his men leave her for dead while she is escaping to the forests of Mistwood, the home of the Wood Elves. Irewen is rescued and befriended by the Wood Elf Prince Laegon. She seems to be the answer to an ancient elven prophesy, but she needs time to learn about her abilities. That is something Elthad cannot allow to happen. He has aligned himself with evil powers, and the world of Vaelinel is beginning to fail. Will growing attractions to her elven prince, and acceptance by the guardian, Silevethiel, be able to help her against an evil threatening her entire world? Review: Silevethiel is a classic coming of age story. Irewen Donríel is a former princess trying to come to grips with her changing world and grow into her new roll. It was a fun, fast read though the pacing seemed to drag in places. A good deal of the book was set to building the world of Vaelinel and was dealt with rather well. Dialogue flowed naturally, and it was easy to come to care about the characters. One critique was that some of the crises situations seemed to end a little too smoothly. However, the book was a fun read, and I am looking forward to book 2.
