While I would love to give this book five stars there are few issues in the beginning chapters that need revisions before I can.
I the story is charming. A book I would definitely recommend to YA and Adults. Clean and sweet with some fine romantic elements this book should not cause a negative reaction for its content. The flash backs to the older characters lives are well written and intriguing. The quest is mostly straight forward and you want to have the heroine and her friends succeed.
This book is the first book by a talented new author and as such it does need a bit of editing but mostly only in the opening chapter. There are flow issues and one spot I noted a change in tense in the same paragraph. Saying that read past it and the book gets much better as you read along. A light fantasy read.
