I was liking this book a lot from the beginning. The writing is really good. Leonie discovers that she and her father aren't exactly human. They are of the Chosen. Leonie had no idea until her powers first manifest and her father shows her a vision of the future. Kytaen are enslaved and treated like animals by the Chosen. I liked that Leonie treated hers as a person since he is a sentient being with feelings, illustrated by the chapters told from his point of view. Leonie has a hard time fitting into this magical world that she had no idea existed and her father compounds the problems with his secretive nature. I really liked these characters Korren and Leonie with their faults and emotions. Korren is dark, brooding and sad while Leonie tries so hard to be cheerful even when she is terrified. Leonie is also very naive, she keeps getting talked into things, that as a reader, I thought were probably a bad idea. This is the first book in the series and I will be interested in reading more books in the series. I was really enjoying it a lot. 4 stars.
