From the Back Cover
Trouble stirs between nations and rebellion threatens Faeraven.
When Kai returns with the supposed DawnKing, Lof Shraen Elcon cannot trust that the Elder youth truly is the prophesied deliverer. Driven to prove himself, Elcon banishes the boy and embarks on a peace-keeping campaign into the Elder lands, where he falls in love with an Elder princess betrothed to another.
Sometimes the deliverance of a nation comes only through the humility of one.
Declaring his love would shame the nations, but Elcon is torn. As war approaches, Elcon's choices lead him on a journey of discovery that will either settle the lands or leave them mired in conflict. Can his kingdom ever be united, or will the consequences of his decisions forever tear asunder the fabric of Faeraven?

I admit that I had mixed feelings about this book, and even as I eagerly anticipate the third installment in the Tales of Faerhaven, I come back to think about this story. I read it weeks ago, but struggled with what to share about it. The story was like watching your best friend do everything possible to sabotage any good thing that could happen to himself or anyone else around him. I experienced a huge range of emotions during this journey, which is what any good author wants to draw from her readers.
Elcon managed to drive a deeper wedge between his kingdom and that of the Elders, a people of different race by falling in love with the princess and marrying her, after forsaking the woman of his own lands whom he was expected to marry. This wouldn’t normally be a bad thing, except that he managed to make a mess of it. Voigt doesn’t mind making her readers fall for characters and then pulling the rug out from under us.
WayFarer is filled with both familiar and strange but compelling characters and creatures, a story that readers of epic fantasy will find satisfying, yet wanting more. I miss Kai and Shae, yet I have a feeling they’re still there. A very good read.
I was a little disappointed in the plot--not because it wasn't a good plot, but it took a different direction than I expected, which made me sad. While I understood the author's reasoning for choosing to take that path, I still found myself in anguish for the main character. No spoilers, promise!
Still, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys traditional fantasy and all that comes with it. I'm really looking forward to the next book. :)
