Summary

As an accomplished cutpurse, Eldin has used her Talents of escape often. She can compress herself under doors and jump from dizzying heights to land catlike on the ground. She can even render herself nearly invisible. But these abilities come at a steep price. Every Talent creates a ripple in the Vale, allowing the Brotherhood to feel her presence - to find her. 

For thousands of years, the Brotherhood held the energy of the Vale over Visgaerd, for both the country’s protection and for their own power. Anyone capable of touching the Vale belongs to them. And, during that time, the Brotherhood has never found a woman with the ability to draw on its power. Or so they say. But Eldin is sure the Brothers mean to end her. Or they will when they meet her in the flesh and discover that she is not the "Brother" they expect. What is a girl to do, when cornered at long last?"

New Paranormal World!

Jen Becker is a new to me author. I very much enjoyed this new paranormal world she has built. This Vale is not like the vale you may have read about from some other authors.
The Vale is held by the Brotherhood. They expect only boys can enter it. Enter Eldin who throws everything into chaos.
I loved these new characters and I look forward to reading more in this series.

Elizabeth Phillips is a new to me narrator and I thought she did a great job with the narration.

This was a review copy and this is my honest review.

Outstanding Paranormal

I very much enjoyed this book. It is lengthy so I am glad it was an audiobook. The book deals with those with magical abilities. It is a historical setting. Eldin is the solitary female brought to a secluded castle among hundreds of men who represent the Brotherhood of the Vale. She is the first female to seek training and education of her abilities. This book ends on a cliffhanger.
Elizabeth Phillips was outstanding in her performance.

EXCELLENT

Absolutely loved the story line. It's fresh and intriguing, kept me up late listening.

The book is very well written with a unique story line and character development that makes you feel like a proud mom.

Loved it, and can't wait to start the sequel.
