This debut fantasy has it all - earth magic, romance, and revolution. Highly recommended for those who loved Johansen's Queen of Tearling trilogy or Carson's Girl of Fire and Thorns series.

For fans of fantasy series with strong teenage heroines and political intrigue. Beguiling setting blends magical nature with 17th century-esque technology. Classified as an adult book in our library, but I could see this one having a lot of allure for young adults.

I really enjoyed this book, this was one I struggled to put down. Ellana starts out with a very narrow minded view of the world and through her journey learns to embrace the truth of what is really happening between the countries. Who is really loyal to the cause, who is a double agent, and who is plotting for their own gain. The intrigue kept me reading but my love for lady Ellana's beautiful gift to wake the land and what she can do with the land was fun and imaginative. I seriously cannot wait for the next installment in the series.
