In a land called Cantro, the Goddess Saros created eight races.  One has been wiped out by another.  Or so it is thought…


Nell has been raised in solitude by her Elf guardian. Her world is turned upside down as she is told she is in fact Human, a race thought to have been destroyed by the savage Garshu. She discovers these creatures murdered her parents and ruined any hopes she had for a normal life.

Lachlin and Liam are twin Humans on the run with the last of their kind: A kindly elderly couple, strong Treyton and young Bean. Lachlin hides a terrible secret about the vicious Merfolk and fears for the time her secret will come out.


Nell must now join forces with these last Humans, as they fight to take back their right to exist.

Mystical and rich with vivid description, 5 stars

After her parents are slaughtered by the evil Garshu, young Nell is raised by Garick, a wise elf who shelters her and protects her from danger by passing her off as an elf child. Until the day Nell discovers the truth. She is Human, a race that is thought to be nearly extinct.

Accompanied by Garick and a band of fascinating characters, Nell sets off on a perilous journey to rid the world of the bloodthirsty Garshulan soldiers, to destroy once and for all the Garshula and their nests, and to find justice for her parents’ death.

Kelly Komm’s writing is lyrical, moving and engaging. Mystical and rich with vivid description, Sacrifice is a mix of fantasy and adventure that will keep you turning the pages until the very last one. It is one of those rare finds, and although it is marketed as young adult fiction, even adult readers will enjoy this entertaining novel. I certainly did.

Read It!, 5 stars

The novel "Sacrifice" by Kelly Komm is compelling.  You forget you're reading a book, as Cantro is a believable land, alive with characters that are also easy to believe as being real.  At times humorous, the narrative
contains some surprises & unexpected plot twists all set within the collective harsh reality of staying alive.  I can't wait for her next book.
