I'd wanted to read this for about three years, and now, I'm in limbo for the sequel. ARAGH!!!!!! I enjoyed the heck out of this fantasy, need it in my library, and know several of my students who would love it, too. The heroine is strong, feisty, not in it for love, but family. If love comes, she's not opposed to it, but it's certainly not her mission. Fak, is their favorite curse word, making me think of the new Battle Star Galatica. Lots of world building and frustrating society rules that need changing. Love Heather Brewer, wonder if she'd consider self publishing the sequel? ( )

This book showed promise, but it desperately needed a better editor. There were sections where the characters just rambled and several grammatical errors throughout.

The societal norms present in this book were quite aggravating and annoyed me to no end. Why the hell would you send out people with ZERO training to fight in battles? Especially since you claim that those lives are valuable. I applaud Kaya for fighting against that.

That brings me to point number two about this book: Kaya. I liked her for the most part, but holy hell she was annoying at times. mouthing off to everyone and turning to yelling almost immediately when arguing.

The idea of the bond between Healers and Barrons is rather interesting and made me decide to carry on with the series, especially after seeing that ending scene. ( )

I had some issues with this book, but I wound up really enjoying it and looking forward to the sequel. Kaya is a Healer who is forced into a boarding school for Healers and Barrons. Every Healer is soulbound/bound to a Barron. Healers are subservient and must assist their Barron in battle. Kaya, having grown up with two Barrons as parents wants to learn to fight, but that is against protocol. There are monsters somehow getting into their school and Kaya wants to protect herself.

The storyline and love triangle are a tad predictable, but there are some surprises that make it worth reading. I wanted the story to be more high fantasy, rather than this weird mix of high school drama and fantasy. I thought the made up language that only applied to cursing was weird. I'd rather the made up language appear in other situations to really make the world believable. Overall the book is a page tuner that I finished quickly. I will probably read the sequel, Soulbroken when it comes out next year. ( )
