In Renthia, everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river. But the spirits of the land want to rid it of all humans. The queen is the only woman who stands between the spirits and the end of humankind, and no matter how strong or good the queen is, the threat of danger always looms. And so, Daleina is one of the young women chosen and trained as heirs to the throne. She joins forces with Ven, a disgraced champion who has nevertheless spent his exile secretly fighting against the growing number of spirit attacks. The partners embark on a quest to find the source of the spirits' restlessness, which will test their courage and trust, and force them to stand against both enemies and friends to save their land. -- adapted from author's website.

Love love love! Villages of trees, nature spirits gone rogue and an unlikely champion whose affinity with nature spirits take her from working with the village hedgewitch to being trained as an heir to the queen - the one person who can keep the spirits happy. And the spirits are not happy. A cross between Uprooted and The Ranger's Apprentice.

Compelling characters and intriguing world-building anchor this exciting story that should appeal to both teen and adult readers. It was one I went out of my way to make extra time for and am excited to see has a second book already out.

The only redeeming thing about this book was the interesting take on the hostile elemental spirits and how they need to be controlled. I didn't much like this aspect, but it was a different take on elemental magic. Otherwise the story was lacking in everything. It didn't seem written for an adult or teen audience except that the mention of casual sex and a bunch of blood and violence wouldn't make it suitable four younger readers either. I wouldn't recommend this book.
