Prince Haille has had his hopes at being healed dashed but has willingly given that choice to save a close friend. Now he is traveling with his friends to the war in Karrith. They have been told that the king will need their help but Haille has some serious doubts about his abilities, is he could really help, and if his father would even accept his help. At the same time we follow along with Gail, Red, and how she is dealing with the attack on Haille’s group. He size makes it easy to hide as a man. She finds her own path as a squire and heading to the same war Haille’s group is going to. I really enjoy this series. You have a little bit of everything. A great story, action and adventure, trouble around every bend, and realistic characters. I love how Haille is willing to go fight in the war but has so much self-doubt. He worries so much about what could happen that he finds himself in trouble left and right. Thankfully his friends are there to help. This is an amazing series and one that I strongly recommend checking out. I do suggest reading the story in order otherwise you miss part of it. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
