4/5 * I would have given this book 5 stars except it seemed to stop in the middle of the story. There is an end-of-season type cliffhanger instead of a first-book-in-a-series type ending. Besides that little problem it is a delightful, exciting read. We follow Anwen as she travels to the village that her many times great-grandfather was banished from. Her father's last wish before he died was that she would receive his pendant necklace and wedding ring on her 16th birthday and return to their family's homeland. On the last leg of her journey she meets a young man named Tyler. She slips and tells him her real name. He makes himself available to show her the sights around the village. As they travel to the ruins of the old city, their traveling companions are not all benign. One of the village girls is very interested in Tyler and doesn't mind if Anwen is jeopardized along the way. Anwen has no idea who she can trust or even what is really going on. Is Tyler a friend or does he have his own agenda as it seems? Why must she hide her identity? And why is it that everything seems to trigger her phobias and fears? As Anwen comes closer to discovering her family's legacy, she must also discover her own strengths and weaknesses. The dragons are awakening and Anwen must be ready soon.
