Mini Review - The Raie'Chaelia

The Raie'Chaelia by Melissa Douthit

Release Date: May 27, 2011
Publisher: Lucky Bat Books
Genre: Fantasy
Format: eBook
Buy It: Amazon

When Chalice sets off for Branbury in the middle of the night with her grandfather's instructions, she has no idea of the dangers that await her. The King's men have destroyed her home village of Canton and she is suddenly thrown into a Terravailian world that she does not know. Lost and alone, she is hard pressed to evade the iron grasp of the madman who rules the land. With the help of a friendly Chinuk, an old man, and a book that she discovers along the way, not only does she find true friends and true love, but she also finds her true self and what it means to be the Raie'Chaelia.

This book is typical of fantasy in that it has adventure, romance... and names you cannot pronounce. That was one of the hardest things for me: the title of the book! I eventually got it, so it wasn't an issue, but it did bother me that the main character was named Chalice. The fact that she shares a name with a goblet bothers me, as if she was a lowly character who came out of nowhere to save the world. Other than that and the slow beginning, I enjoyed this book! If you enjoy fantasy, you'll enjoy her many adventures and her friendship with Jeremiah. Be sure to check out this book!
