Enjoyable read with an interesting concept - magic was stolen from the people and the land, but prophecy proclaims that the Heiress of Light will return to the people and bring magic to the land. Add in a couple of meddling gods and an evil prince who wants to claim it for himself and you have a novel that keeps you entertained page afer page. Elena has magic awoken in her and has to deal with the feelings and compulsions that it brings. Magic needs its partner and with her holding all 5 magics, that means she will need 5 partners to counter her magic or she will die. Her 5 protectors were assigned at the advice of her grandmother who had the gift of sight, but not all of them are happy with their supposed destiny. Elena has to work through all of this with her protectors while they are hunted by the evil prince Leonardo, who wants nothing more than to sacrifice Elena and claim magic for himself. Great start to the series, however Elena has some growing up to do. It is a shame that the next book is not from her perspective as it is missing closure in a lot of aspects.
