But is her destiny to lead her people in the same type of life her mother lead them in? Or can she see a path of peace instead of war?
This is really a beautiful and dramatic story. Told in Rain's voice, every word is moving and will touch you like few stories do (or can). Almost dream-like in execution, the book is just a wonderful little thing. I very much enjoyed this one.
I recommend this book for readers aged 12 and up (even though the circumstances of Rain's birth are rough, they are dealt with gently and not really dwelt upon) and any lovers of mythology. This book will take your breath away.
