The daughter of a Warrior King, Xylara was trained as a healer. With her father dead and her incompetent half brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to warring Firelanders. Unable to depose her sibling or negotiate peace, Lara serves her people by healing the warriors injured in battle.
But the care she provides is not for her countrymen alone. The wounded Firelander prisoners of war receive the same attention and compassion - and Lara finds herself educated in her enemy's language and customs in return.
She never expected that her deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire. To save her land and her poeple, Lara sacrifices her freedom to become the warprize...
i borrowed the book because it had our herione as a healer and i've got to admit, i love healers especially. even when i play mmorpgs or online games, i usually choose my class as healer or cleric hehehe just love healing. too bad my brain can't process that much healing information to be really useful in reality though sigh >.<"
this book didn't disappoint me at all. loved the story, loved how she was able to get along with her enemies too. loved her compassionate nature and of course, our hero, kier, was a delight to watch. so gentle and yet, really fierce at times too. hehe i definitely recommend this. it's a good read. enjoy!
