Living in the small home of a healer woman who took her in after the brutal slaying of her parents, Maia is destined for more than just a life picking herbs. When she has a chance encounter with some soldiers, she finds out more about herself than she ever knew. Events are about to lead to some pretty big adventures and more chance meetings with people she never knew existed. Evil has taken her family and it’s threatening to take over more than that if The Resistance can’t overcome it. But The Resistance is finally set to win after more time than anyone can remember under the thumb of the evil Zorach. Violet Eyes by Katharine Bond is the story of a young girl with more than a little adventure and danger ahead of her.

Maia is the type of girl that any young girl wants to be. She may be quiet and shy from the start, but she’s not afraid to stand up for what she wants or what she believes in. She’s determined to right wrongs and create a good life for herself and her family. That’s something anyone reading this book can relate to and it’s something that I found intriguing as well. It’s part of what drew me in with this book. Of course, the adventure definitely doesn’t hurt matters and the fact that you don’t know what’s going to happen next makes you want to keep reading all night. Violet Eyes is most certainly the whole package.
