In the remote village of Mandryn, Tessia serves as assistant to her father, the village Healer - much to the frustration of her mother, who would rather she found a husband. But her life is about to take a very unexpected turn. When treating a patient at the residence of the local magician, Lord Dakon, Tessia is forced to fight off the advances of a visiting Sachakan mage - and instinctively uses magic. She now finds herself facing an entirely different future as Lord Dakon's apprentice.

I was looking forward to this book, I really enjoyed the previous trilogy. However the story is quite 1 dimensional, you don't get to know the characters in any depth and it feels like the story was put together with any great thought. Added to this the audio version is poorly read and edited- e.g. Jumping from one strand to another without any pauses.

I wish I had not spent a credit on this book.
