This is an epic fantasy about a young princess who attempts to run away with a handsome bard, but gets lost. She ends up with a group of adventurers set on saving the world. This is a really good coming of age story,with a hint of romance. I loved this book, and I'm actually in the middle of reading it again, then I'll I pick up the sequel.

An amazing journey of a young girl becoming a young woman. Exciting and engaging the entire read! I couldn't put it down- and neither could any of my daughters! We all loved this book and couldn't wait for book 2 to arrive!!

Gold Star Award Winner! I enjoyed this book so much that I ordered the next one in the series the minute that I was finished with it. I even wrote to the author to congratulate her on a wonderful read. I haven't read high-quest fantasy in a long time; they just weren't very exciting anymore. When I started THE SONG AND THE SORCERESS I was greatly surprised, because there were so many great characters! I loved the main character the most. Ki'leah is a princess of Si'vad. She is very naive and is walking away from her life as a princess. She is supposed to be getting married to a King whom she doesn't even know. She is running away to be with a bard of her court, Daelen. She goes the wrong way and is swept up with a band of men and women who are on a quest to stop an evil sorceress from waking up and wreaking havoc on their world. On this journey, Ki'leah has the adventure of a lifetime and also matures into a young woman who will be able to rule her kingdom with cunning and wisdom. The plot is good and very scary at times. There are some really amazing obstacles that the group must face, including sword fighting, riddles, very dark tunnels, magic, and just getting along with each other. The characters are very well drawn. There are four very strong female characters. Ki'leah may be naive, but she is willing to learn and she draws upon her inner resources to face her enemies. Britta is the best. She is a butt-kicking warrior and scout. She is very likable and would be fun to hang out with. Then there is Sorrelle, a member of the Fey-Velahr, who is quiet but can use magic to help them at times when you would think all is lost. Then there is Llyrimin, who is a grieving widow and gives help even though she may put her own family in danger. The men are great, also, but the unique difference to this is that these women are just as important as the men. There is also romance in this story, and I came to love some of the men because they were strong and treated the women like equals. The only thing I would add to the book is a list of characters in the back with a pronunciation key and a little blurb about who they are. At times I would get a little mixed up. There are many names, which because they are different, are easily mixed up in my mind. However, I really liked this book and can't wait to read the rest of the series!
