Kidnapped as a child and stranded in the Faerie Realm, Latera grows to love her new home of Parthalan. When she's suddenly returned to her family, she realizes that she may be Parthalan's only hope.

Stolen and abandoned in the Faerie Realm, Latera lives in in obscurity until she happens to rescue Aeolmar, First Hunter of Parthalan, from a clutch of demons. Aeolmar brings Latera to the court of the Faerie Queen, where she becomes a warrior every bit as fierce and deadly as he. She earns the name Demon-killer, along with Aeolmar's unwavering devotion.

Now Latera has been kidnapped again, and in her struggle to return to Aeolmar's side she learns that she is the one demons fear.

Caught in a war between faerie and demon, Latera may be Parthalan's only hope.


Professional Reviews

Fantasy romance with a lot of action
Rise of the Deva'shi tells the story of Latera a princess who is kidnapped to the realm of Faerie. She escapes her captors and starts her life anew as a humble horse groomer at a small village inn. One day Aeolmar the First Hunter of Parthalan comes through on a training exercise and asks for Latera to accompany him and his men to the forest so she can care for their horses while they train. During the training there is a demon ambush and Aeolmar is injured fairly badly. He is returned to camp unconscious while his men go to hunt the vile demons that attacked them. When the men leave demons attack again leaving only Latera to defend Aeolmar and herself. She manages to kill two demons and injure the third when Aeolmar wakes up and finishes it off. This being a totally unheard of feat for someone who has absolutely no combat training Latera is invited back to the castle to train to become a huntress.

This begins the story of a growing affection between Aeolmar and Latera as well as a Parthalan being in danger from increased demonic activity that must be stopped. Along the way Latera learns the truth about her past and why mysterious things keep happening to her in the land of Faerie.

Overall the book was good. The story was entertaining for the most part and the characters were well written and engaging. The biggest drawback to me was the romance aspect of the book. I don't mind their being romance in books that I read, but this had a bit to much for my taste. If you enjoy stories of love with fantastical elements then this book is for you, and honestly it was well written enough that if there is another book in the series I will check it out for sure.
