It began with the chiming of the tiny copper bell on the mantel warning them someone was passing the ward stone her mother had placed on the path to their house One terrible day Makenna a young hedgewitch witnesses her mother's murder at the hands of their own neighbors Striken with grief and rage Makenna flees the village that has been her home In the wilds of t Surprisingly good book for all ages I've read A LOT of fantasy books over the past three decades and I've become a bit cynical about them But this one was refreshing easy to read and engaging It avoided cliches it had a strong intelligent but not overdone heroine this is NOT Xena Warrior Princess and the hero was not your usual Brad Pitt in shining armor And the fact that it portrayed teenagers as deeply loyal capable family loving and intelligent not just shallow sex driven dimwits out to get in trouble I'd like to see a lot of that in the media and popular fictionI picked it up because I was hoping to find a book suitable for my 4th grade daughter who is a very advanced reader but not old enough for the mature themes found in some young adult books I read it first myself mainly to judge the level of sexviolenceadult themes before letting her read it But I soon found myself eagerly turning pages I finished it within two days and would love to see a movie versionFor fellow parents There's no sex at all not even hints of it The romance in the book is very understated and subtle It's about two people fighting for their respective causes and really getting to know each other and not about fleeting sexual attraction That was refreshing The violence wasn't excessive in my opinion though others might disagree Some characters fight there are swords deaths and wounds occur but as essential parts of the plot and not in any great detailI thought this was a wonderful book but if you don't like moral ambiguity good characters are not all good bad characters are not all bad and if you don't agree that sometimes people do a lot of evil in the name of good then you won't like this The exploration of what really defines good and evil is central to the story and worth thinking about in real life as well
