Prophecies are meant to unfold on their own—they can’t be forced into fruition. Or can they? When a war-torn kingdom is on the cusp of falling to a usurping general, a young healer who doesn't believe in magic is called upon to help a prophecy transpire. She must embrace the magic...or lose everything.



At eighteen, Moreina di Bianco is a young healer who believes in medicin

This review isn't fair! I'm the author. ;-) Still, I'll always enjoy a journey with Reina and I hope you do, too.

From old-maid healer to taking on an epic quest Moreina is the kind of character you fall in love with and never want the journey to end. Prophecies and magic, healers and love, this story bursts to life from the first page and never lets go. I found myself sharing her hope, laughing at her predicaments, and cheering the spirit I knew she had. Quick paced with spellbinding characters and epic adventure this is a story not to be missed. Long live hero’s, true love, and the authors who know how to ...more

My favorite kind of books, regardless of the genre, are those you can’t put down, those you think about when you’re not reading them and those you can’t wait to finish. This debut novel is exactly one of these!

This YA fantasy has it all: prophesy, magic, lore, love, war, adventure, suspense. Right from the start the author pulled me into her world with wonderful, characters and beautiful imagery, making it effortless for me to visualize each scenario and landscape in my head. The lore of Andra a

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, cover to cover. Reina is a strong young woman who has made it on her own and is content with her life. But life has more in store for her. This is a great adventure. The author caught my attention with not only the adventure of finding the talisman and learning to use it, but also with her description of the place where this all happens-complete with an ancient prophesy and folktale about the two moons of Liron. Descriptions about places like Reina’s cottage were ...more

This review is a long time coming! And what a unique and amazing reading experience this was! This actually wasn’t the first time I’ve read this. I read it in the beta stages with the intent to help the author with some feedback. I failed….. miserably. Why? Because I fell in love with the book! I wanted to read it as fast as possible and didn’t stop to take down notes as I was readi

The first of a new trilogy (oh, I can't wait to read the next one), this story takes us on a journey right from the beginning. 18-year-old Reina, a healer, is reluctant to believe in her magical abilities; she's pragmatic, self-reliant, a bit stubborn, likes her simple life, and has always taken care of herself since her mother's death. She heals through medicine, not some magical force. Or does she? As she slowly unlocks her potential, she quickly learns who is friend and who is foe on this jou ...more

This book is captivating from page one! The characters are well-developed and intriguing. Reina’s character is especially relatable, as she embarks on an exhilarating expedition to find the talisman and save the kingdom. The use of imagery and descriptive text throughout the book, draws you into the story. As the plot thickens, you feel compelled to keep turning the page, so that you can find out what happens next. And the end does not disappoint either! Possible side effects include excessive s ...more

This was a great book. I loved the storyline. It pulled you in right away. I felt as if I was part of the characters lives. A grand prophecy with a talisman. I loved it. The characters were wonderful. The blended well together. I loved Reina. I can't wait for the next book.

I loved this book. I was a great and easy read. Moreina di Bianco believes in medicine, no magic. As a young girl, she is a healer.
This book contained humor and grief in it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves magic.
I gave this book 4/5 stars.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The story line was interesting but in a lot of places i could almost predict what was going to happen.

In some places slow, the book gives an overall impression of a ballad being sung. The characters were likable but did not inspire much emotion in me.

All in all a good uncomplicated read.

I loved the characters and the plot twists that kept me turning pages. The heroine is smart, brave and has a heart of gold. Clear your calendar because you won't want to put this book down once you start. I hope book two will be available soon!

I was completely taken over by this book! I found myself becoming attached to the characters quickly as I became immersed in a new world. I simply couldn’t put this down. I can’t wait for the next one!
