My Thoughts: This is Book 1 of what could turn out to be a very good series. I love reading fantasy/sci-fi type books that involve magic and healers. This one even has clans of barbarians. Frida is a young healer who has always longed for adventure and yet knows her place is to heal others using various methods her grandmother taught her. She has been treated as a sort of outcast and just wants to be accepted for who she is....once she figures out who that truly is.
She pretends to be a man when her village is invaded and along the way meets a unique priest who can tell there is much more to Frida than meets the eye.
I really enjoyed this story and would very much like to read more about these characters. The only major issue that I had with this book was that it almost moved too fast and the romance portion of the story could have used more build up. I would give this 4 stars.
If you are interested you can find it on Amazon for $8.36 plus $3.99 for shipping.
