Since disease stole her mother at a young age, Rose Caden has longed to become a healer. Juggling her family, her work, and her studies on the edge of a blade, she’s almost made it. But her life is transformed in one night when her daughter’s magic - forbidden magic - reveals itself.

When even her mentors refuse to aid her, Rose must find a solution or risk losing her daughter forever.

Need to know what happens!

At first I did not realize that this was part of a series. I was extremely happy when I did because this audiobook left me wanting more.

It is a short story about a mother telling what had happened to them. Why they are where they are.

I am going to have to get the other books as soon as I can!

Intriguing prequal to Raven Thrall

Healer’s sacrifice is a prequel to Raven Thrall. The story takes place at the beginning of the war when the King’s army takes children with shapeshifting gifts to be trained for his benefit. The story tells of the night that Shira’s mother had to make a difficult choice to save her baby from the clutches of the King. Although it is not a prequel in the true sense, it does give more information about Shira and other characters in Raven Thrall.

Interesting prequel

Definitely a short set up couple chapters. Interesting premise of a magical world. The narration could have been a bit better in terms of differences between characters. Overall a decent listening experience, we’ll see how the next book goes.

Parents: nothing super off putting or mature content. If it were a movie it’s probably be rated G.

A Mother's Dilemma

This story is about a mother who has a baby that is a shifter. Being born a shifter immediately results in the child being confiscated by the king and drafted into his army as a virtual slave. Keeping her child who keeps changing into a bear cub at the most inopportune moments becomes increasingly impossible and the mother is left with difficult and complicated decisions.

The author really does a very nice job of portraying the whole dilemma with realistic, well rounded characters, a good use of English and a sense of empathy for her characters. The pacing of the story is good and never drags at any point.

Sound quality is clear and the narrator does an adequate job.

This is a stand alone work, although it does reference other books in the series. No prior knowledge of the series is required.

A prelude to the world of Raven Thrall

The most excellent book Raven Thrall small weakness is some of the beginnings. This short story brings the past into the present of Raven's Thrall and gives context to one of the very important co-protagonist of the story. At the same time, it gives texture and background so one understands the setting of the these stories world as a whole. As in Raven Thrall Lynn Norris' narration is outstanding and gives even more life to a very enjoyable listen.

Great little novella!

Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An enjoyable prequel novella to the Ceo San universe. Gives us a little bit of insight into the world, and into the life of Rose.

I enjoyed the book and the narration, a little short to spend a credit on though.
