The electrifying first novel of an all-new fantasy series from the legendary author behind the Shannara saga, about a human girl struggling to find her place in a magical world she's never known "Enticing . . . Brooks's fans will be thrilled to have a new series to savor."--Publishers Weekly At nineteen, Auris Afton Grieg has led an . . . unusual life. Since the age of fifteen, she has been trapped in a sinister prison. Why? She does not know. She has no memories of her past beyond the vaguest of impressions. All she knows is that she is about to age out of the children's prison, and rumors say that the adult version is far, far worse. So she and some friends stage a desperate escape into the surrounding wastelands. And it is here that Auris's journey of discovery begins, for she is rescued by an unusual stranger who claims to be Fae--a member of a magical race that Auris had thought to be no more than legend. Odder still, he seems to think that she is one as well, although the two look nothing alike. But strangest of all, when he brings her to his wondrous homeland, she begins to suspect that he is right. Yet how could a woman who looks entirely human be a magical being herself? Told with a fresh, energetic voice, this fantasy puzzle box is perfect for fans of Terry Brooks and new readers alike, as one young woman slowly unlocks truths about herself and her world--and, in doing so, begins to heal both.… (més)

This book was my first Terry Brooks book ever read and unfortunately, the likelihood of me reading anything else by him is ruined.

The intro was so captivating where she is trying to escape a prison run by Goblins and loses all of her friends in the process. Action packed and intense.. for all of 20 pages.

She finds herself meeting Harrow, a fae male. He becomes 90% of what she thinks about. For some reason. There isn't any depth to their bond or relationship, it simply exists somehow.

We end up in a Fae city known as Viridian Deep. It's beautiful? But honestly not greatly described. Auris is so extremely bland. She washes herself, eats, and sits on benches for another 30% of the book.

She is trained on weapons by Harrow. Oh, nevermind for some reason she just knows how to use them all, but she has no memories of her past.

They bring her to Seers to see if she's part Fae and they determine she is and that she's likely a Changeling.

All Auris can think about is how she loves Harrow, but again.. why? He trains her and talks in old fashions and she just obsessively wants to spend her life with him despite not knowing anything of her past and being tortured in a prison for several years. Priorities.

Everything is peaceful until random battles have to happen. All of which are fought easily, because Auris is just naturally good at everything.

The same thoughts and sentences are repeated a million times throughout the book. Because if you haven't heard, she really loves Harrow.

The ending is predictable, her changeling self is discovered and she's marrying Harrow. Gasp. I didn't see that coming at all.

This book is the writing of an old man trying to be the voice of a young woman and it fails. ( )

A light, enjoyable story about a young human girl, Auris, escaping from tyranny. She finds an entire world of the Fae that she didn't know existed and secrets about her past she's been unable to ever remember. Good, some action, light. A bit on the YA side. Not related to any other Brooks novels. ( )
  Karlstar | Mar 27, 2022 |
Edit out 90% of the yearning and 90% of the agonizing and this would be a decent action YA. Or dip the tone into mocking and it would be a decent spoof of a YA. But as is it's a tedious drawn out waste of any imagination went into it. ( )

This story is a big change from normal Terry Brooks books. It has a fairy-tale feel to it with a bit of danger, drama, mystery and light romance. I enjoyed it quite a bit. If you're looking for epic adventure this isn't it, but if you're looking for a fun read with a satisfying ending, give it a read. ( )

After Auris bravely escapes from being imprisoned by goblins in the middle of a wasteland, she is rescued by Harrow, a Fae. Auris remembers nothing of her life before her imprisonment, but she knows she feels at home in the Fae community and is increasingly attracted to Harrow. Together they set out to uncover Auris's origins, and to overcome the enmity of Harrrow's mother. Brooks has created a vivid new world for this first book of a new series, but I found it repetitive and in need of editing for length. ( )
