Publisher Description

Sixteen-year-old Neryn is alone in the land of Alban, where the oppressive king has ordered anyone with magical strengths captured and brought before him. Eager to hide her own canny skill--a uniquely powerful ability to communicate with the fairy-like Good Folk--Neryn sets out for the legendary Shadowfell, a home and training ground for a secret rebel group determined to overthrow the evil King Keldec.

During her dangerous journey, she receives aid from the Good Folk, who tell her she must pass a series of tests in order to recognize her full potential. She also finds help from a handsome young man, Flint, who rescues her from certain death--but whose motives in doing so remain unclear. Neryn struggles to trust her only allies. They both hint that she alone may be the key to Alban's release from Keldec's rule. Homeless, unsure of who to trust, and trapped in an empire determined to crush her, Neryn must make it to Shadowfell not only to save herself, but to save Alban.

Read it, you'll love it.

I've been reading this author for years. Never a disappointment. I retread her books again and again, and they get better each time.

Can't wait for the sequel

I really recommend this book. It is filled with adventure, fantasy, and romance. The characters are well-developed and each word she writes comes alive off the page. I felt as if I was in the world of Alban and I can't wait to immerse myself again into Neryn's world in her next book.

ADD THIS ONE TO YOUR MUST READ LIST!

LOVE this book! Shadowfell is one of those stories that makes you drop everything else and simply read until the end. Juliet Marillier is one of my favorite authors, and has once again brought us another amazing heroine in Neryn. I only wish all the books in this series were available NOW, because patience is not one of my virtues!
