In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obsessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die. The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying. Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.

If you enjoy Native American mythology, the use of Raven the trickster in this futuristic science fiction tale adds to the story. The story is set in the year 2098 when security has become more obtrusive and nature has become threatened and rare. Kelsa, whose father has recently died of cancer, is approached by Raven who needs a human to help him heal the blocked paths in the leys, which are similar to rivers of energy that run across several worlds, including ours. Humans have damaged the leys by their uncaring attitude toward nature and only a human can heal the damage. I enjoyed the story. It has lots of action and Kelsa and Raven are interesting characters. I'm glad that I didn't pick it up until the second book was out. I'm not sure it would have been easy to remember the storyline without having the second book, Traitor's Son, to complete the story.

Really good, but if your expecting romance, don't get your hopes up.
