From the Publisher:
Falling in love is easy . . .
. . . for Kezi, a beautiful mortal, dancer, and rug weaver, and for Olus, Akkan god of the winds. Their love brings Kezi the strength to fight her fate, and it gives Olus the strength to confront his fears. Together -- and apart -- they encounter spiders with webs of iron, the cruel lord of the land of the dead, the mysterious god of destiny, and the tests of the Akkan gods. If they succeed, they will be together; but if they fail, Olus will have to endure the ultimate loss, and Kezi will have to make the supreme sacrifice.

Best known for ELLA ENCHANTED, children's author Gail Carson Levine has created another fraught tale combining the challenges of coming of age and coping with dangerous times. Promised as a sacrifice to Admat, the one true god, Kezi has little time to ponder her burgeoning love with someone who threatens to tear her world apart. Caught between love, her family, and the gods, Kezi must find her way--with death hanging over her head.
