Publisher's Summary

Journey to the magical world of Erthia in this exciting prequel to The Black Witch by critically acclaimed author Laurie Forest.

Before Elloren Gardner came to possess the White Wand of myth, the Wand was drawn to another bearer: Sagellyn Gaffney.

Sage’s affinity for light magery, a rare skill among Gardnerians, makes her the perfect protector for the one tool that can combat the shadows spreading across Erthia. But in order to keep the Wand safe from the dark forces hunting for it, Sage must abandon everything she once knew and forge a new path for herself...a dangerous course that could lead to either triumph or utter ruin.

Laurie Forest does it again!

Laurie Forest has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her fantastic and imaginative storytelling engrosses you and makes it easy to become emotionally invested in her character’s lives. The narrator did an excellent job and really brought the characters to life. I hope that there will be another book continuing Sage’s story! I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

Wasn't sure what to expect..

Point of view from another character and at first I wasn't really into it but after about 30 min I was glad I did! It was good to hear more about how all of this came to be, and really liked the new characters.

I love this series!

I love all of the different races of the characters, the character development is great, and the narration is perfect (not annoying or distracting from the story). I'm ready for more! I hope at LEAST 4 more books come out of this series!

Narrator pronounces words wrong

The story is great but I can't get over the heavy Minnesota accent and poor pronunciation from the narrator. It's drives me crazy that she pronounces Sages name as Sage Ellen instead of Sagelyn.

magical fantasy storyline

I love this book series and I am far from a young adult or teen. the story was great for leading into the Black Witch. narrator was a little rough, very monotone.

Great story!

Great book! The actresses midwestern accent was very distracting, though. Glad the story outshined it.

Fantastic

Fantastic interlude to the chronicles. Even better than expected. Sage's character development swept me in as we learn more about the different races and the story going on prior to Elleren getting the White Wand. I can only imagine it will help highlight parts of the next book in a new way and shape the already enthralling story further. While the narrator started out shakey to me (it's jarring having a third narrator for the series) she improves as the book goes on and I find her very fitting to the story quickly. Her talent for coming up with new accents for the various races is impressive. This may be one of my favorite books of the chronicles thus far. On to the next one!
