Review: Elli is next in line to be the Valtia of Kupari, the all-powerful queen and keeper of fire and ice magic. When the queen dies, the magic somehow does not transfer to Elli, and she is cast out. Rescued by Oskar, an outlander with powers of ice magic, she is taken to the outlands where criminals are banished and where she learns the truth about her life in the temple. Elli becomes more and more determined to use her skills to help her country in this tale of magic, devotion, love, and determination.
