If you are into the 'fantasy' side of books, then I'd like to make this suggestion. I picked this book up at a book fair, knowing nothing about it, or the author, other then the text on the back. It's an absolutely brilliant book. It has all the right ingredients: Excellentwriting, well written characters, a tale mystery, a powerful and hated enemy, and a good love story.
I'd love to hear your feedback if you decide to pick it up and read it. You should!
