Ever, by Gail Carson Levine
Kezi is a beautiful mortal, an exceptional dancer and weaver.
Olus is the god of winds, lonely and young. When Kezi's mother
falls ill, her father swears to sacrifice the first person to
congratulate him on his wife's recovery if she is cured. To
prevent anyone she loves being killed Kezi makes sure she is the
first to congratulate her father. Olus, who has fallen in love with
the young mortal, tells her that if she can become a god she will
survive the sacrifice. Together they set out to find a way that
Kezi will be able to live.
This was a quick and interesting read. The writing was mostly
very good but had a few rough spots and confusing moments
that I felt the editor should have had Levine fix.
