Lady Carliss is a young knight of the Prince, talented in the skills of both the bow and sword. When another knight, Sir Dalton, falls prey to the deadly poison of the esca lizard, Carliss goes on a quest to find the fabled swamp-lily that will save his life. But at the same time, the people of Moorue are disappearing within the swamp. Will Carliss let Dalton die so that she may be able to save the people? Or will she be able to conquer both quests?
My Review: As far as I can tell, this is by far one of the most exciting books I have ever read. Not very long but great since the main character is a girl who is a knight, which is what I love seeing. The book deals wih how easy it is to escape reality and ignore the fullness of life. There was nothing objectional in this book that I can remember. So I'd recommend for this for ages 11 and up, and for anyone who LOVES a good battle scene in books.
Below are the ratings you are most likely to see during any of my book reviews.
Five Stars: Awesome!
Four Stars: Good, with mildness of action
Three Stars: It was ok...
Two Stars: Blech...
One Star: Had to shut it before I finished.
And I have to say, "Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue" deserves 5 golden stars from me!
