She was just a lost girl when they found her.

The circumstances are odd, that much is true. But she’s just a child. She needs protecting. She needs guardians.
Before long, strange magic manifests from the small girl, equally awe inspiring as it is terrifying.

Does she control the fire and light?
Or do they control her?

Shadows are rising from Alfuria, the very world beneath their feet. Sometimes they call, wishing for an unending embrace.

Dragons have risen as well, from myth and legend, stalking land and sky. The roar of such beasts shakes even the most resolute warrior.

Shadows, gods, dragons, and the girl with red hair. What is real and what is merely illusion?

Adelaide is undoubtedly important.

That may be the only certainty.

The Girl With Red Hair is a refreshing high fantasy novel, reminiscent of roleplaying games (for some reason), as the group of main characters seems like a group of misfits at first, and don’t really fit well together, a rather haphazard group. But as the story continues, it becomes easier to relate to them, and they start to function somewhat as a family as they battle evil, their enemies, and sometimes amongst themselves.

The heroes go on a quest, in typical fantasy fashion, and travel through wondrous continents and settings, fighting enemies, and revealing more about themselves. The characters were interesting, and as a roleplaying-fan, I could easily recognize the classes often used in roleplaying, and their standard, stereotypical behavior. Yet, the author does a good job of gradually moving beyond the stereotypes and showing real people.

The writing was lyrical and descriptive, and I quite enjoyed the writing style. If you enjoy roleplaying, fantasy games and movies, then I definitely suggest taking a look at this book.
