To escape punishment, Tera, a maiden healer sold to barbarians must hide the truth: she has not yet come into her healing powers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved it! I really loved the storyline in this book and plan on getting the second in the series. It's so hard to find a fantasy book that isn't just average. Great read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cant wait for the next one Very well written. The main character was very naive at first but she soon matured and became very interesting

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised by how much I like this., July 10, 2014 I WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR: this review is from the previous edition of this book which was called The Third Scroll. I’ve read several books by Dana Marton and loved all of them. When I was offered a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I wavered and nearly said no. After being told there was no hurry to finish the book, or leave my review, I agreed to read it; that was back in April 2014 and now it is July 2014 and I finally got up the courage to read this. I read all kinds of romance but I’ve never read one that I would classify as a “fantasy;” I don’t even click on the free ones – they just don’t really appeal to me. I decided to finally read this book because I love Dana’s writing and wanted to give this one a chance. I will admit that it took me several chapters to get into this book. A lot of the terms were just strange to me but I kept reminding myself that it is a fantasy and that I just needed to go with it. I am so glad that I kept reading. I read several of the critical reviews and just don’t understand how people can leave such negative reviews about the book when it seems to me they just didn’t like the genre. Just because you can’t get into the fantasy that doesn’t make this a bad book. One reviewer criticized some of the terms used in the book. They made fun of the words “man parts.” In a normal, contemporary, romance I would find the use of this term pretty hilarious but I believe it was totally appropriate and fit perfectly within the world that Dana Marton created in this book. The book begins with Tera as an innocent young woman and ends with her being a confident, more mature one. Her journey to get there wasn’t easy but the story was compelling. I won’t rehash the book details but I am so glad that I kept reading. By the time I got to the end of the I want to read more about Tera and Batumar and was very sad that the end of the book had come. While this book didn’t really end in a cliffhanger I sincerely hope that Dana writes another book for Tera and Batumar – soon.
