Legend Destiny by Nance Bulow-Morgan

A dark overlord is ruining the city of Mareese.  It's peoples are being oppressed and and controlled.  The people believe there is no hope until a young girl, Diony, is believed to be a part of a prophecy.  She finds she has extraordinary powers and takes it upon herself to fulfill her destiny and free her people.

It feels really strange that I just took such a deep read and condensed it into one mere, short paragraph!  I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this book.  I've read fantasy off and on but they always seem to have that 'fantasy fog' over them.  You read the book and you know what's happening, but it's more like watching it on tv than actually being there in person.  This is the first fantasy book I've read with no 'fantasy fog'!  Way to go, Nance!  This is a fantasy book for those of us who like to be really involved in our books!  I was sucked right in at the beginning and couldn't get out until I'd completely finished.  There are a few graphic scenes, so if you're faint-hearted, take that into consideration.  Personally, I loved them!  If it's not your thing, it's easy enough to skip over them without missing too much of the story.  The book does open up with a rape scene though, so be prepared. 

This is a definite must read for you fantasy lovers!  This is definitely more realistic fantasy than most of the fantasy that I've read.  Those of you who aren't into fantasy, can read this as a strong adventure book.
