Good for readers: 16 and up

As I read the first third of the book, I was debating between two and three stars. The reason? Most of it takes place where a couple is alone together and the man (Ronan) is too hurt to do ANYTHING for himself. You can imagine some of the things that leaves for the main girl Brenna to do. Although the story pulled me in and kept me turning pages, and the author was put things delicately, I didn't think I was going to like it.

After Ronan recovered, the book got much better in my opinion. In fact, by the end, I was impressed that faith was not only an element story, it was the story. In so many books the faith seems like an unimportant element. In Healer, it was the thread that brought the whole story together.

I really liked how the author pulled in Arthur, Merlin, and others form the stories in a refreshing way.

Overall, though not a story for young readers, I really liked it. I wish the first third of the book had different, but is was redeemed by the rest of the book.
