An entertaining fantasy novel -- no real new ground here, but a compelling female lead and an interesting world with enough internal politics to be interesting, but not so much as to distract from the usual quest-type story. Marisol, the young and suddenly-thrust-into-important-role lead, is a fun character in the fixed mold of regular girl becomes great. She struggles to learn her new role as Chalice (a sort of priestess) while keeping her down-to-earth beekeeper/woodskeeper roots.
