Renn is a year younger than Torak. She is described as tough, courageous and an expert in archery. She has been forced to become s Mage all her life because of her skill with magic. Torak, fin-Keddin, and wolf are her only true friends. She is oftenly described openly by through Toraks eyes as older and beautiful.


Torak is described as tall and brave, native, defensive, and territorial. He becomes protective of Renn in the later books, which consistently tends to frustrate her.


Fun fact.. Torak develops feelings for renn throughout the series.

6/10 star rating To me, this book was kind of boring but okay at the same time. Halfway through the book I was so bored. It Maybe sounds good in the summery, but not the actual book.
