Summary

As an accomplished cutpurse, Eldin has used her Talents of escape often. She can compress herself under doors and jump from dizzying heights to land catlike on the ground. She can even render herself nearly invisible. But these abilities come at a steep price. Every Talent creates a ripple in the Vale, allowing the Brotherhood to feel her presence - to find her. 

For thousands of years, the Brotherhood held the energy of the Vale over Visgaerd, for both the country’s protection and for their own power. Anyone capable of touching the Vale belongs to them. And, during that time, the Brotherhood has never found a woman with the ability to draw on its power. Or so they say. But Eldin is sure the Brothers mean to end her. Or they will when they meet her in the flesh and discover that she is not the "Brother" they expect. What is a girl to do, when cornered at long last?"

Within the Vale

This is an excellent start to a series.A society of 'Brothers' live a semi secluded life where women aren't involved.In the 'vale',a type of thinny the brothers can step into for a time,they sense new members and gather them as children.When a girl is discovered,many things change.This was predicted eons ago. Having a woman in their midst stirs up conflicts but also brings things to the brotherhood they never encountered...including an uprising. Elizabeth Phillips was a terrific narrator.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Slow paced

This was a very slow paced book which made it hard toe keep interested. I liked the main character. The magic system was interesting. The narrator did a good job. I won't continue the series because the pace was just too slow for me.
