Cameron, the headmistresses daughter, meets one of the local boys during a training mission in town and begins a secret relationship with him. It takes all her knowledge and skills that she has learned to keep her true identity a secret.
I was rather surprised to find that I really enjoyed this book. I haven't had the best of luck with my YA book choices lately for some reason, but this book was just what I needed. Smart, interesting girls, fun and mysterious setting, boy troubles. It was perfect.
I did notice some eerie similarities to a certain other book series set at a specialized and secret school for training young wizards, but the differences kept it interesting.
