The Raie'Chaelia by Melissa Douthit

The Raie'ChaeliaBook Description:
When Chalice sets off for Branbury in the middle of the night with her grandfather's instructions, she has no idea of the dangers that await her. The King's men have destroyed her home village of Canton and she is suddenly thrown into a Terravailian world that she does not know. Lost and alone, she is hard pressed to evade the iron grasp of the madman who rules the land. With the help of a friendly Chinuk, an old man, and a book that she discovers along the way, not only does she find true friends and true love, but she also finds her true self and what it means to be the Raie'Chaelia.

My Thoughts:
Chalice's life has been completely turned upside down.  Her papa sends her away as the town is being attacked, but when she gets to where he sends her, she finds something has happened to those people as well.  Jeremiah is an old friend and more.  She meets up with him and the two of them set off to find out exactly what happened to the people they love.  Along the way they meet a host of interesting characters that will help them in their journey.
I absolutely loved Jeremiah!  Yes Chalice is the main character and she is wonderful, but Jeremiah was my favorite.  He has so many wonderful traits including strength, loving unconditionally, and protective of his friends.  Chalice is great.  Such devotion to her friends and family, even a family that she doesn't know.  That devotion is amazing and could cost her more than she ever planned on.  Her friends, Ben and the Chinuk are wonderful.  The storyline is great!
I rate this a 5/5.  I can't wait to see what happens next in this series!
