A young heroine and her goshawk companion face wizards and gods in the first of a trilogy: "I thoroughly enjoyed Path of Fate" (Kristen Britain). Orphaned by her mother and passed from family to family in the village of Kallas in the land of Kodu Riik, Reisil feels as if she will never truly belong. But her training as a tark, or healer, offers her the promise of acceptance by the townsfolk, and as her talents emerge, it appears she will finally be able to hold her head high.   But fate has another path in store: A goshawk named Saljane swoops into her life, and Reisil discovers that she is able to communicate telepathically with the animal. This is an undeniable sign that Reisil has been chosen by Lady Amiya, the goddess of Kodu Riik, to become an ahalad-kaaslane--a guardian of the land who must live a life of constant travel and forgo the very bonds of family and community the girl healer so desires.   Though the role of ahalad-kaaslane is a noble one, Reisil cannot bear the thought of losing the ties with society she has worked so hard to form. She rejects the Lady's appointment, ignoring the goshawk no matter how persistently it follows her. But when a kidnapping plot breaks a treaty with the neighboring country of Patverseme, Reisil realizes the sentient bird of prey is the only creature capable of tracking the traitors down and saving Kodu Riik from the evils of war. Reluctantly, Reisil accepts her destiny as an ahalad-kaaslane, and embarks on a dangerous pursuit of the kidnappers--and a perilous trek of self-discovery--in order to save two kingdoms.   A feminist fantasy of honor and perseverance that features a special soul-to-soul bond with a blessed animal, Path of Fate was nominated for the Mary Roberts Rinehart Award.… (més)

Path of Fate is not only a great adventure read it's a fascinating look at the power of fate. This would actually make a good group read as there is lots of material for discussion. I will definitely be seeking out the rest of this series. ( )

I picked up this one out of boredom and because Kristen Britain provided a review on the back cover. Truthfully I didn't enjoy it as a series. The first book is well-written and some of the ideas throughout the series are fairly interesting. However, the series begins to get a little cliche and busy (Dragon Ball power ups anyone?). I'd reccomend this book but not the series. ( )

When you want to live a quiet life and a Goddess decide otherwise, you can refuse you life for a time, but not for long. I found this world interesting, where it's guardians are bounded to animals and live with then closer than with soul-mates. This first book is a good star that grow into something better as the other book comes. ( )

The story itself is very enjoyable. There is adventure, romance, friendship, and betrayal. Some parts are touching while others are tragic. The pacing is even for the most part. This novel does suffer alittle from first book in a trilogy syndrome, there is alot of setup and back-story to cover, but I did not feel that it bogged the story down very much. Overall, a nicely paced light read with well-balanced elements of tragedy and triumph.
