Summary

Ruethwyn's life was promising. Talented in magic, the young elven woman didn't fit in in her hometown but was scheduled to attend the most renowned academy of magic in the kingdom and was even building up the courage to confess her love in the hope it might be returned.  

That all ended in a dragon's fire. Resvarygrath the Gilded, lord of the Golden Dominion, destroyed Ruethwyn's village, killed her parents and teacher, and stole away the young women of the village. Maimed by the dragon's flames, Ruethwyn was spared by a curious dark elf who gave her a chance; she had two years to rescue her beloved or risk losing her forever.  

Now, Ruethwyn has little time to recover as best she can. Missing an eye and an arm, her magic half-crippled and her wounds impossible to heal due to a curse, Ruethwyn's prospects at the academy are limited, but she refuses to give up. No matter what challenges she may face, she is determined not to surrender. She's lost too much and refuses to lose another.  

First, though, she needs to survive long enough, which proves more challenging than Ruethwyn expects.

Good fantasy book.

For Medrano's writing this book is very chaste. So if that's what you're looking for you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for a good fantasy book with a female mc that has a spine you have to look no further. The narration was pleasant to listen to.

The master story teller does it again!!! Don’t miss out on this.

I truly love every book Benjamin Medrano has written, I just can’t get enough of his books, they always makes feel like I am personally getting to know a whole new world. The narrator for this was spot on what a great jobb she did, with telling this intriguing tale. Once again a great female lead that doesn’t start out the most powerful, But fights to protect those around her even if it costs her everything. Couldn’t wait for book 2 to get out on audible so I went ahead and bought it in kindle.

Another great entry

A story of inner strength and resolve.
Great characters with lots of growth possibilities but that is expected from Benjamin Medrano.
The narrator was a perfect fit for the series.
5/5 and waiting for the rest
