The people of Uztar have long looked to the sky with hope and wonder. Nothing in their world is more revered than the birds of prey and no one more honored than the falconers who call them to their fists.
Brysen strives to be a great falconer–while his twin sister, Kylee, rejects her ancient gifts for the sport and wishes to be free of falconry. She’s nearly made it out, too, but a war is rolling toward their home in the Six Villages, and no bird or falconer will be safe.
Together the twins must journey into the treacherous mountains to trap the Ghost Eagle, the greatest of the Uztari birds and a solitary killer. Brysen goes for the boy he loves and the glory he’s long craved, and Kylee to atone for her past and to protect her brother’s future. But both are hunted by those who seek one thing: power.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a little something different and fun. I learned a lot on falconer. I did liked the two main characters in the book. They were entertaining.
Brysen, I liked him a little bit in the book. He was kinda dumb in the book but later grows on you. He kept everyone entertained throughout the story. Brysen believes doing things out of love without thinking, so how much trouble can he get into?
Kylee, I liked her a lot in the book. She mostly uses her brains a lot and always bailing out her twin brother. When her brother gets into big trouble, will she be able to save him?
This book is action packed, fast pace read. I enjoy the world building with hawks. It was such an different idea. I was draw to the cover and the story. Yes there hawk fights, and hawk training in it. A war might be coming whoever controls this ghost hawk also. In the end you must find out for yourself what happens to the twins.
