Full of romance and nature magic, this debut fantasy is perfect for fans of Shannon Hale, Juliet Marillier, and Kristin Cashore.

Lark has foreseen two things—she will fall for a young man with sage green eyes,and he will kill her.

Sixteen-year-old Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?


  1. YES! Very excited for this one, too. The story sounds amazing, and the cover is so gorgeous but at the same time reminds of the more "old-school" high fantasy covers. Great pick, Jaime!

  2. Great pick! This was my WoW choice a few weeks back and I can't wait to read it, the cover and the fact that it's been compared to Juliet Marillier alone would have made me buy it but I love the synopsis too.

    My WoW!
