A new voice in fantasy weaves a rich, entrancing tale of a girl with powerful healing gifts — and the courage to use them to save her ailing kingdom.

Shadows fall across the beautiful, lush kingdom after the queen is attacked by an unnatural beast, and the healing skills of her daughter, Alexandra, cannot save her. Too soon the widowed king is spellbound by a frightening stranger, a woman whose eyes reflect no light. In a terrifying moment, all Alexandra knows disappears, including her beloved brothers, leaving her banished to a barren land. But Alexandra has more gifts than she realizes as she confronts magic, murder, and the strongest of evil forces, and is unflinchingly brave as she struggles to reclaim what is rightfully hers. Fantasy lovers will be held in thrall by this tale full of visual detail, peppered with a formidable destructive force and sweetened with familial and romantic love.

Baker & Taylor
When her mother, the queen, is killed in the forest by a terrifying beast, Alexandra, suspecting that the new woman in her father's life is not what she seems, is exiled and betrayed, and must face magic, murder, and the loss of all she holds dear in a desperate struggle against evil.

So the plot about a father marrying an pretty woman and having anyone the main character could depend on disappearing or under evil control, its abit cliche... Okay, so alot cliche, but the story itself was cute in its own way. Just wish the confrontations were better arranged.
