I have had this book on my TBR pile for awhile and was excited to read this. I ended up reading the first 200 pages of this book and just couldn't get into the story, so I stopped. It was written in a very simple style and ended up being very boring. No matter where or when I read this book I kept falling asleep and I rarely fall asleep while reading.
The story bounces back and forth between a young hedgewitch named Makenna and a young knight. Makenna has befriended the goblins in the woods and is harassing the ruling kingdom with her goblin army. The young knight is sent to find her and lead a group of church sorcerers to stop Makenna’s rebellion.

I struggled with the stark writing style and how slow the story moved. I didn’t find the characters, the storyline or the world-building to be all that interesting or engaging.

Overall I didn’t like this book and stopped reading it after the first couple hundred pages. I won’t be continuing with the series, this was just not for me. ( )

Love Makenna and her grumpy goblins.

Hate the antagonist. Always a good thing. ( )

Makenna is a young hedgewitch on the run after her mother is killed by the very villagers she grew up with. During a period of hiding in the woods, she encounters a group of goblins, and after some altercations, she grows close to them and they take her in as one of their own. Together, they begin working against a group of priests known as the Bright Ones, who are slowly eradicating all sources of magic that are not their own... the very same group that killed Makenna's mother. On the other side of this battle is a young knight named Tobin, who is working for the Bright Ones. However, once he meets Makenna, he begins to see how corrupt the group truly is, and sides with the goblins against the oppressive collection of priests. While the story leaves little room for character development, the plot is engaging and full of action. It's a fantasy novel stands out on its own, equipped with a unique and enthralling storyline and courageous characters full of wit. ( )

When Makenna's mother is killed by the villagers that she's known all her life, Makenna runs away to escape her mother's fate. Like her mother, Makenna is a hedgewitch, and witches are being persecuted more and more by both the government and the people of the land. After stealing an apple from an orchard protected by goblins, Makenna finds herself pursued by the creatures . . . until she learns more about them and comes to an understanding with them. Goblins, like witches, are being driven out of the settled lands and into the wilderness. Though they are crafty and gifted with magical talents, they need someone who can organize them if they are going to have any hope of surviving. Makenna, feeling hostile and resentful of her own kind, throws her lot in with the goblins and never looks back.

Tobin is a knight and heir to his father's lands, until he rescues his younger brother from a political scrape. When he takes his brother's place and accepts responsiility for the scheme, Tobin is beaten, demoted, and disinherited. He's given one chance to regain his honor: capture the sorceress who has power over an army of goblins. He has hardly a chance against such powerful magic -- but the only other option is a life of shame, and by capturing the sorceress, he would be saving his country as well. However, when he meets Makenna and her goblins, he begins to question everything he has been told about this "sorceress" and her "army."

This was a quick and straightforward read, without a great deal of depth to either characters or plot, but enjoyable nonetheless. ( )

This book is dedicated to my father, who loved Makenna because he despised "wimpy" heroines. Thanks, Dad, for everything.

Makenna had to stretch onto her toes to reach the small stone lamp, for the shelf that held it was higher than a grown woman's head, and she was only eleven.
