Fourteen-year-old Linn continues to mourn her father, even though it's been years since he died. When her mother remarried, this time to a worshipper of the demon Rane, it was almost more than Linn could bear. Her stepfather's beatings over the past years are nothing compared to his latest demand, however. He arranges a marriage for Linn that will requirer her to convert her faith and becom a worshiper of the demon. Obeying this order would go against everything Linn's beloved father taught her. So she runs away and boards a ship, hoping to find the fabled City of the Trees, where the Lysefolk spoken of in her father's religion are said to live. But not before recieving a harsh beating from her stepfather that leaves a strange mark the shape of an arrow in the palm of her hand. This mark, supposedly the Hidden Arrow that can defeat Rane once and for all, causes some to fear and hate her, and others to trust her for their salvation. Linn must find out the true meaning of the "Hidden Arrow" if she is to fufill her destiny and build a new life for herself. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy young adult fantasy, however it's too bad there was never a sequel.
