Description (from back of book): In Aessyra, war is imminent. the wise ponder the meaning of an ancient prophesy of destruction. Scattered across the land on fragments of parchment, these cryptic words consume them spurring them into action. But what if the wise are wrong?

Sixteen year old Halith only wants to meet her father, the High King, but her mother and a strange man have other plans for her. She is sent away for fosterage "for her own good". Plans go astray, and Halith rails against her fate, longing to know who she really is in this world. As she begins her journey along the way of the warrior, she becomes entangled in the Third Great War, and learns the meaning of both friendship and betrayal.

My Thoughts:

Halith is a wonderful YA Fantasy novel that can be enjoyed by everyone. I am glad to see a young adult woman figure with strength and courage leap off the pages with every turn. From the moment Halith found out she was to marry an old fat merchant she began taking her own destiny in her hands. Halith just knew she had to escape this arranged marriage her uncle set up for her.

Halith's (who was only 16) journey began one night as she ran away from her home where she lived with her uncle. She headed into a dark and scary forest where she learned how much courage she had to have to make it threw her first night. Although small this was her first journey and obstacle to overcome on her quest to be a warrior and a great warrior she turns out to be.

This book was action packed from the start and quickly became hard to put down at times. This was one of those I have to see what the next page brings kind of reads for me. This read is defiantly well worth the price of the book. I love a good fantasy novel and this one has proven to me to be one.
