Full of romance and nature magic, this debut fantasy is perfect for fans of Shannon Hale, Juliet Marillier, and Kristin Cashore.
'Lark has foreseen two things—she will fall for a young man with sage green eyes,and he will kill her.
Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering
herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called
Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to
seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect
that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her
visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another
reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who
must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the
amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take
back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength
and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.' - Goodreads
I'm not quite sure where I came across Lark Rising but I saw the cover and liked it. What really appealed to me though is that the blurb says it will appeal to fans of Juliet Marillier and Kristin Cashore. If this book is anywhere near as good as Daughter of the Forest or Graceling I'll be a happy girl :)
