Ever by Gail Carson Levine
Rating:Ever is yet another brilliant story by Gail Carson Levine. In the book, Levine weaves classic fairy tale elements with basic mythology, immersing the reader in a whole new world. The story and language isn't quite as simple as it is in some of her other books, and would be easier understood by older children. The book is a must read for Gail Carson Levine fans.
Kezi's life has been pledged to the one god, and unless she can find a way to thwart her fate, she has only one month to live. Olus, the god of the winds, falls in love with Kezi, and is unwilling to let her die. With the help of Olus, Kezi embarks on a perilous journey to become an immortal god. Can Kezi past the test, or is she doomed to die without love?
