If you like mystical, magical stories, then this one is for you. Eritara is a seer and her husband Thanon is a bard whose music creates magic. Eritara is given a vision by the Night Goddess that she is pregnant and her daughter is the key to defeating the evil Baelthrom and his Dread Dragons. Eritara and Thanon must choose to commit a terrible act of magic to save their island home or stay and let the evil find them and their daughter.
The story is well-written, the character’s peril and the tough decisions they make are realistic, and the magic and magical creatures are new and intriguing while at the same time familiar enough we know what they are. It was a short novella that introduced the world, the characters, and the prophecy to be fulfilled well that drew me in. I definitely will be reading the next book in the series.
