Douglas, Sara. The wayfarer redemption.

Tor. 653p. c1995. 0-765-34130-1. $6.99. SA

Faraday, a young woman caught in the political plans of her father, finds herself fleeing the city in the company of her betrothed's brother. She is unaware, as is he, of the supernatural events that place them in a war that will change the lives of the people and places they love. Falling in love with each other complicates, but does not ruin, the plans made for them. In a land where trees are feared, Faraday and Axis must unite the people of the plow and the people of the trees and air to conquer the evil that is trying to cover the land with eternal winter. As Axis fights the evil creatures that attack the fortress where they are staying he must find a way to use the power within himself to help overcome Gorgrael, his half-brother.

This long novel, complete with its own glossary, will be intimidating for some readers. But those who love a good epic fantasy novel, which is the beginning of a new series, will rejoice. I fell in love with the complex characters and wanted them to succeed. I would recommend this book for high school students who are excellent readers.
