Enjoyable fantasy read.
After her nasty experiences in Redawn and her fight with Navadar, Kiethara is relieved to be back in the forest. However Aaron, the spirit that guided her since she was three, now starts training her to fight Gandador. Aaron's origins are finally explained in this book.
On her 16th birthday, she finally experiences the full power that a forest guardian is capable of but also learns that she must be the one to kill Gandador.
Kiethara makes her first female friend, Camella a girl of her own age who lessens her loneliness. Navadar comes back and resumes his role as romantic interest although I thought Kiethara was far too quick to forgive the awful things he said during their fight.
Gandador grows in power too and acquires sidekicks that are evil strong magic users. His cruel influences starts spreading in Redawn and other cities and it's just a matter of time until he attacks Kiethara again.
Kiethara's overwhelming grief over the loss of a beloved friend, distracts her from her duty as a guardian. Will she be able to defeat Gandador with the help of her remaining allies?
A good conclusion to this 2 part book series. Book needs proof reading to correct spelling and other errors.
