Publisher Comments:

Falling in love is never easy, but falling in love with an immortal god while your days on earth are numbered is almost more than a young girl can bear.

Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine has created a stunning new world of flawed gods, unbreakable vows, and ancient omens in this spellbinding story of Kezi, a girl confronted with a terrible destiny. Attempting to thwart her fate, Kezi and her love, Olus — the god of wind and loneliness — embark on a series of dangerous and seemingly impossible quests.

Kezi is a beautiful mortal, an exceptional dancer and weaver. Olus is the god of winds, lonely and young. When Kezi's mother falls ill, her father swears to sacrifice the first person to congratulate him on his wife's recovery if she is cured. To prevent anyone she loves being killed Kezi makes sure she is the first to congratulate her father. Olus, who has fallen in love with the young mortal, tells her that if she can become a god she will survive the sacrifice. Together they set out to find a way that Kezi will be able to live.

This was a quick and interesting read. The writing was mostly very good but had a few rough spots and confusing moments that I felt the editor should have had Levine fix.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, July 2, 2008 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
Mortal Kezi, young dancer, rug-weaver extraordinaire, and daughter of a wealthy Hyte family, has caught the eye of Olus, Akkan god of the winds. Despite being a god, or perhaps because of it, Olus despairs of winning the affection of Kezi. That is, until Kezi inadvertently commits herself to becoming a human sacrifice to the god Admet... A magical mix of fairy-tale, mythology, faith and romance, with appealing strong female characters and imperfect but compassionate gods and goddesses.
