One day Sydelle is playing in the countryside avoiding her mother with her best friend Henry and the next she is the apprentice to the wizard Wayland North. Unknown to her, she has a destiny he is not to willing to share. While North can direct magic, Sydelle can make it. That alone makes her both wanted and unwanted.
A good adventure/love story. On the adventure side, it is your typical tale following the only people able to stop a war, but on the love story side it does not involve the normal, boy meets girl, woos girl, girl falls immediately in love predictability of most romance young adult stories today. Of the two leads, I tended to favor North more than Sydelle, even though it was her story. Sydelle was very naïve and it was fun to watch her grow in her confidence and take a role in her own future.
I would recommend it and be willing to read more from this author.
