Item description for Keeper of the Flame by Catherine Chase...
The mystical land of Draecus-a land closed off from all others for generations. In Mikaelia, it is remembered only in bedtime stories passed down through the ages. The racial war for the lands of Mikaelia is over. The human female Jarnell fights her family's wishes for a marriage that will unite two noble houses. Running away, she seeks out her elven friend, Dekion, and gains a startling companion in the form of a half-orscha warrior, Sahri-tah. In the upheaval following the devastating wars between the races of their land, the three companions must transcend their ingrained racial distrust to search for Dekion's father, who was lost during the wars. Following their only lead, given to them by a crazed man in the streets of Sel Lorst, they find themselves in the lost, magical land of Draecus where a war between humans and orscha has just begun. The companions become caught up in the war that crosses the once peaceful Draecus. They must fight to stay alive long enough for the portal to open again and allow them passage back to their own land. While they wait, Jarnell, a follower of the Goddess of Passion, fights a growing desire to stay in the arms of Daedic of Draecus, the only man to ever bring to life the flames of passion in her body, mind, and soul.

Fantasy, Mythology, and Passion... Jul 27, 2006
Ms. Chase has written a novel that intricately weaves several storylines together skillfully into one cohesive story, that while it stands alone, leaves the reader begging to know more.
With fanciful but believable characters, races such as the elves, orscha, and a race of people known as the Aishtoullar, which are similar to characters we have seen in other fantasy novels, but with a new twist that is unlike anything a reader might find in any other fantasy novel - the characters of Keeper of the Flame will not fail to delight and keep you drawn into the story.
The story begins with the birth of Jarnell, our unlikely heroine, who came into this world and into her station in a rather chaotic way, to fulfill a destiny, unknown to her, her family, or her companions--a destiny known only to that Goddess she serves, but to whom she has never committed herself or her sword completely--a destiny that Jarnell is not too sure she can fulfill.
From there, we are introduced to a variety of characters, all linked to Jarnell in some way, and we watch their adventures as they travel on their quest, a quest that, should they fail, would ultimately mean the destruction of two worlds. On this quest, we are taken through a series of events that show us war and destruction but also love and friendship, and the bonds of blood, family, not to mention a great romance thrown in the middle of all the other chaos. It's a good balance, and a believable plot with which any reader can relate.
Keeper of the Flame is a story about passion... passion for life, passion for love, passion for following one's destiny, in spite of all the obstacles. I highly recommend this novel and look forward to more of Ms. Chase's creations.
