Review:

Two magical teens experience tragedy and adventure in this fast-paced opener to the Faelin Chronicles trilogy. All their lives, Diello and Cynthe have been conditioned to avoid attention, so their Fae blood won t bring them undue prejudice. The twins yearn for a little adventure, but their 13th birthday brings more of it than they ever expected. A brutal goblin attack kills their parents and razes their home, leaving them at the heart of a mystery that has uncaring adults and a powerful gor-goblin looking to capture, kill, or exploit them. Their only hope is to decipher their parents dying wishes, master their newfound Faelin powers, locate a magical artifact, and figure out what s really going on. Hall (a pseudonym for adult SF/fantasy author Deborah Chester) injects her fantasy setting with a fair amount of realism; despite the tragedies that befall the twins, the story never feels unbearably bleak. She delivers a nonstop series of tense escapades, allowing the characters to find their inner strengths even as they deal with threats both fantastic and mundane. --Publishers Weekly

Returning after an errand, twins Diello and Cynthe find their home burned to the ground, their Fae mother dead, their human father dying, and their youngest sister kidnapped. Their father s final words eventually lead them to a powerful sword, Eirian, sought by both the pillaging goblin hordes and the hostile Fae court of Embarthi. Caught between two powerful enemies, the twins must uncover the truth of the sword and take it home so they can reclaim their lost sister. Action carries the day in this earnest tale of loss and discovery, moving readers along at a good clip through the pain of losing parents and on to the confrontations with evil in its various guises. Intriguing complications introduce future complexities for the Faelin Chronicles, such as the implication that one or both of the twins parents are traitors and their challenge of finding a home within an unfriendly society. Though these are somewhat serious, heavy issues, the book has an underlying innocence that makes it amenable for a wide range of readers. Cindy Welch --Booklist, May 15th 2011
