Of New Beginnings and Silver

Grad school…

That’s literally all I can say, readers. I apologize for being away so long. I know you missed my sarcastic puns and horrible jokes from the enjoyment of your electronic device. But I promise to be back starting now! Just one more semester of grad school and I should be on my way to making my regularly scheduled posting.

Ha ha.

Let’s be real. I never have a schedule. It’s my New Year’s revolution.

Anyways, this year has been jam packed full of fun and school. I’m almost finished another project I’m working on. Just three more chapters! Come on Kylan Mogg! Get it together! And also finalizing a new Picture Book, which I hope to debut in 2020.

Other than that, my life has been filled been books, Disney+, dark and brooding thoughts, and of course Bob’s Burgers. But let me tell you, this year the Young Adult books have literally changed my world. I’m going to share my top ten picks to check out!

  1. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
  2. Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
  3. A Tale of Magic by Chris Colfer
  4. Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra
  5. Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  6. With the Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo
  7. Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
  8. Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford
  9. Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin
  10. The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

These ten titles were ones that were published and read during the year! Don’t get me wrong, there were MANY MANY MANY GREAT TITLES to choose from, including some I haven’t even started reading yet (I’m so behind on my TBR list). These were the ones that really made a lasting impact that I read over and over when needing inspiration.

Without further ado, here a review from the book Of Silver and Shadow by Jennifer Gruenke! I urge you to add this to your 2020 list. I promise you won’t regret it!!!

A girl born with Silver. Haunted by a shadowy past. Jennifer Gruenke makes a stunning debut with the dark and twisted gem Of Silver and Shadow. Gruenke takes readers deep into Denfell, where a tyrant king rules without mercy. His team of highly trained guard keeps his land in check, along with his silver channel of powers. It takes a young group of individuals to join the rebellion and put an end to his evil ways, including a young child from his past. The one he thought was killed, one of the last silver wielders to stand against him. Gruenke introduces readers to a diverse set of characters who are all connected like cards in a deck. From a cunning thief to a rebellious prince, each individual has a role to play for everything to go as planned. Even if it means opening dark secrets from the past.

This exciting story provided a new perspective on the political affair of the monarch. It shows how strong the younger generation can work together to build a new world for others to live it. I can’t wait for readers to literally open this book and see how the evolution of Young Adult changes the readers from 2020 and beyond.

Merry Christmas!

Happy New Year!

The Blood Spell

Asyou can tell, my goals for keeping you updated on my blog with reviews on booksand other writing catastrophes is basically gone. To be honest, I’m failing atlife as well as keeping you informed with the new stories making their marks onthe world of readers.

I’mso sorry!!

Butdon’t be mad.  I don’t need your judgment!

Butin truth, I’ve been going through some health problems, mentally and physically.

Nowenough about me. Today I’m going to talk about one book that’s been on my TBR(to be read) list. C.J. Redwine is back with another book in her Ravenspireseries. If you haven’t read these books, stop reading. I repeat! STOP READINGAND GO BUY THR FIRST BOOK The ShadowQueen AND LET YOUR HEART BE FILLED WITH JOY!

Anyways,Redwine takes her love of classic fairy tales and twist them into darkdeceptive stories for the Young Adult world.

The Blood Spell is a retelling ofCinderella, introducing readers to the amazing, wonderful, fantastic,intellectual, inspiring Blue de la Cour. She is an alchemist, who secretly hasfairy magic. Now before I go any farther, if you haven’t read it yet, theremight be spoilers. I’ll limit as much as I can, but there is no guarantee.

Soin the beginning of the book, Redwine describes the how a blood wraith used toplague lands of Balavanta. It would murder children left and right, leaving thestreets stained with blood. However, Blue’s mother was able to trap it with thehelp of another witch and saved the land.

Manyyears later, readers discover the same thing happening all over again. Bluediscovers children are going missing, as well as the return of Prince Kellan,the boy she always disliked. They grew up together, the King and Blue’s fatherbeing best friends, and she unfortunately had the task of watching his crazyantics. She discovers his return in a street fight and persuades him to stopand think of the Nessa and his mother.

Bluetries to help figure out a solution, but is blindsided when her father is mysteriouslymurdered. She is then put under the guardianship of Dinah Chauveau, a socialelite who cares for nothing but power. The horrible woman forced Blue down tothe root cellar, the place where Blue watched her mother die.

However,Blue discovers that Dinah was the one behind her father’s murders and figuresout that Dinah is the one trying to free the wraith. Dinah murdered multiplechildren and reveals her identity as the other half of the blood wraith. Can bluestop her? Will she marry Kellan?

Goread to find out!

Nowthis review was filled with so much plot that it took  me forever to write it. First you have Bluetrying to turn lead into gold to help the homeless children, Blue and Kellan’slove/hate and undeniable chemistry, the murders, the blood wraith, and so muchmore.

WhatI truly loved about this book was the characters growth. Redwine creates astrong and fierce heroine in Blue with an African American Background. The princess,Nessa, is mute and communicates through sign language. I mean there is so much strongrepresentation of voices in this Young Adult fantasy for everyone to love!

Ican’t wait to see what is next in Redwine’s Ravenspire series!

Well,that’s all for now, but be on the look out for another post coming soon!

Exciting Days

So I know I mentioned that my last post of 2018 would be like three posts ago…

However, I woke up today to some exciting news that I couldn’t wait to share. Many people don’t realize how long I’d been writing. I wrote my first story in the 6th grade, following a group of farm animals and their wacky adventures. Two of them are published, while I have many hidden away, too scared to share them with the world.

I decided to be more courageous this year, and submit a couple of short stories to some online literary websites, and magically one of them was accepted and featured online!!!

Thank you so much Short Kid Stories!!!

I am so excited, grateful, blessed, and speechless for this opportunity!! I really cannot thank all my supporters, and God for this amazing and wonderful chance to share my stories with the world!

So without further ado… Check out Trip to Ancient Egypt!

Series Ending

Hey readers! I hope everyone is having great holiday fun! Go and enjoy those candy canes, cookies, and hot chocolate!!

The holidays always make me think back to the past year, and remember all the amazing adventures I’ve been on. This year was one that involved many heartbreaking moments and zillions of tears shed as some of my favorite characters are now moving on to their new lives. However, I was also introduced to some new and exciting ones as well, making me realize that no matter when a book series ends, a new one will begin.

So before I go into this heartbreaking plea, just remember to follow any of my social media accounts found on the home page. Just in case you want to follow me in this crazy adventure of life.

2018 was a year of beginnings and endings for my book world. Books series that brought joy and love to my literature world had been completed. It almost seemed like my life was officially ending.

The first book series that broke my heart was none other than the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard. War Storm was a dramatic and action lit book that took Mare on a roller coaster of emotions. (Just so you know, I’m still no over the death of Shade.) But no matter what came her way, Mare was able to overcome and sacrifice anything to save her family and friends from the greatest villain of all time. Now for those who haven’t read the series, I recommend that you take some time before to really decide whether or not you want to embark on a quest that will ultimately destroy your heart and soul. Aveyard created one of the most antagonizing and intellectual characters featured on the dark side. Maven, the antagonist, was the inspiration to many of my own villains I dreamed up, and reminded me of none other than the Joker from Batman. This series ended with a bang and showed that no matter what happens, everyone is meant to be equal.

Veronica Ross made the top list of taking a book and twisting the plot so that readers literally have no idea what’s happening. Her conclusion, The Fates Divide, showed her creative strength of building an entire alien universe that made me want to fly up toward the stars and never return. I was so sad to see this series as a duology, wanting more of Cyra and Akos. However, Roth is known as being the toughest and most brutal writer in centuries (Just read the end of Allegient.) The twist in this series gave me a heart attack! I couldn’t believe the words that I read, requiring me to read it more than once- 38 times to be exact. I will forever be a fan of Roth’s as she dives into more writing and will always be waiting for her new books with a crash cart nearby.

One of the most talked books that made its way in 2018, and literally didn’t debut until just this month. Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, was a massive weight of a book (And I don’t mean just the weight.) Lord of Shadows, the second book of the dark artifices series, ended with a heartbreaking loss of Livia Blackhorn. The final book in the trilogy opens up just after the chaos and takes readers down the road of grief and brokenness. Splitting it into three parts, the book wraps up all the characters story lines, including the dreaded parabatai curse that was plagued by the two main characters, Julian and Emma. I’ll forever miss this family and the epic adventures and diversity I learned about the shadowhunters, faeries, and other downworlders. Readers will even see some old faces, including a lovely story in the end about Jace and Clary. Although, Clare ends this series with shocking news, and uses it to create a new series for the shadowhunter world, displaying to readers that Clare isn’t done with the shadow world yet. I can’t wait to see the next series to the dark artifices. Hopefully, it will star Ty and Kit! And I would love to learn more about Ash!!! (Read to find out who he is.)

And finally, the book that made me cry for weeks on end after I forced myself to finish it belongs to Sarah J. Maas and her amazing ending to her Throne of Glass series. Kingdom of Ash took me to a new world in the Young Adult world. It took Alein and her companions on an adventure that only could be summed up as “remarkable.” I still can’t believe that this series is over, and will forever hold it in my heart as it gave me the inspiration to write more about unknown dimensions! Alein had already sacrificed so much for her kingdom and she does it even more when she is captured by the wicked Valg Queen. Spending three months in an iron coffin, she escapes and finds her mate and husband Rowan, who travels with her back to Terrasen. Revelations and lost history are revealed, ending this book just twenty pages below 1,000. Maas put her heart and soul into this world, and it was a blessing to be able to experience an ending beyond expectations. I remember picking up this book in 2012 and falling in love with a world that I want to travel too. A world full of darkness, yet relies on the hope of the people and the fey. Please, please take a chance and dive into this book series. I promise you won’t regret it!

As you can tell, these were only a select few of many wonderful series that concluded in 2018. Even though we say goodbye to these wonderful series, we are introduced to new and inspiring writers and stories, including Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone and Rebecca Ross’s The Queen’s Rising. These new books will take you on a whirlwind of adventure, inviting you back for their sequels coming in 2019!

So readers, as you think back on your year, remember all the books and authors that helped you escape the chaotic reality. Use this time to spark the passions hiding deep inside you! And never forget to reach for the stars and fly beyond them.

2019 is going to be grand!

Merry Christmas to all!

Happy New Years!

And I’ll see you next year!

I’m Back!!!

So, let’s just say it’s been awhile….

 

Now I know what your all thinking.

 

Where the heck has Kylan been?

 

Well don’t worry. I am still alive, drowning in the depths of grad school, life, books, and countless other things added to my list. But I am going to try and make an effort to post at least one blog a month. That way I don’t just ghost out or anything like I did these past months. My bad…

 

Since the last post, life has not bothered to slow down one second. Every day it feels like I’m adding more and more to my list of things to do. It’s crazy how busy life can be at times. I don’t have time to watch my tv shows, read more books, or even write every day like I want. Although, it doesn’t mean that I haven’t been sneaking around and having some great writing sessions at 1 or 3 in the morning.

 

I am so excited for 2018 to be over with. This has probably been one of the toughest years of my life. Just going through the daily struggles of life, mentally and physically. It seems that some Slytherin has made its way into my Ravenclaw heart. But its expected when things don’t work out the way you plan. And when my plans get wrecked, everything else seems to burst into flames. I was hoping to have my new book out in the summer of 2018. I even posted a tribute back in the spring about it. As you can tell, it didn’t happen…

 

Deadlines weren’t met. I kept pushing it off. The editing process of this book literally killed me and my editor. (The book was also a pain to write too.)

 

I do want to thank you for your patience. Your support wouldn’t be possible without each one of you! With that being said, I am glad to inform you that my new book is in the final stages! I have the first printed copy and I am currently going through it one last time before I send it in the world. Before I release the title and cover, I want everyone to know how special this book is to me. I’ve been working on it since 2014. It was one of my very first novel ideas and I’ve written about 5-10 different manuscript versions of it. Most of them ended up on the floor, but it wasn’t until September 2017-Feburary 2018 did this book finally come together. I was able to write about one chapter a week, and create loving characters and a fantastic world that I hope the readers will love! Every journey with a story is always precious. There are some that are still waiting to be written, and I am so glad that this one is finally being told.

 

So without further ado, here the title and cover of my new adventure!

Catwoman: Soulstealer

Okay, so my constant absence has been due to Grad School, which is going great!!! However, its been taking a huge amount of my time, preventing me from posting more reviews and blogs.

With that being said, here is the review of Sarah J. Maas’s new book Catwoman: Soulstealer!!!!

 

This is the third book in the DC Icons Young Adult series!!!

I’ll try to post more as soon as I can readers!!!

Enjoy!

Sarah J. Maas uses her writing talent to create a story featuring one of the most slender and striking character to haunt the alleys of Gotham. Her catlike agility plus her claws and bull whip doesn’t slow down Selina Kyle’s passion of helping the poor and weak against Gotham’s viscous and alarming criminals. Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sara J. Maas is a Young Adult novel about 17-year-old Selina Kyle and her journey of becoming Catwoman. Maas takes the readers back to the beginning showing how strong the woman in black is by focusing on how much sacrifice it takes to walk the streets of Gotham.

The story is separated into two parts, beginning with Selina Kyle and her adventures in Gotham before she become Catwoman. She is working for Carmine Falcone as one of his fighting leopards, doing everything she can to put food on the table. Her mother is a no-good drunk, forcing Selina to care for her little sister Maggie who has a severe case of cystic fibrosis. Working for Falcone, Selina must endure match after match proving her work, loyalty, as well as money to pay for the debt of medical cost piling up. After going twenty-seven rounds undefeated, her reign comes to an end when she loses a fight that cost her everything. Gotham City’s child services show up at her apartment with the police, ready to take the two sisters into custody, but Selina’s instinct in the ring sprawls into action, sending the cops to the ground. She is later escorted to the police station where she meets Talia al Ghūl, who offers her a chance to leave Gotham City and her past behind. Considering her options, Selina ultimately decides to leave, sacrificing everything she’s ever worked for in order that Maggie is given a home away from the criminal tirade of gangs and violence. With no goodbye, Selina departs that night on the plane, leaving her past behind her.

Two years later, Selina returns to Gotham under the alias of Holly Vanderhees, ready to bring the high society of Gotham to their knees. After training for two years at the League of Assassins, she begins stealing priceless jewels and artwork, drawing the attention of other female fatales including, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Bribing the two women with jewels and riches, the trio begin working together, using their wits and talents to rob Gotham’s finest, until they draw the attention of Batwing, or known to the public as Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises CEO. Although, Selina’s intellect already knows who the masked crusader is, and learns more of the past veteran and his sacrifice in the Marines resulting in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that haunts him every time he closes his eyes. Batwing is determined to catch Catwoman, but she is always one step ahead of him, until the League of Assassins sends their best, Tigris, to put Selina to the test after she stole valuable information about the Lazarus Pit. Just as Batwing unmasks Catwoman, he is shocked to find Holly Vanderhees, his neighbor and lover for the past weeks. The one who has spent countless nights nursing his wounds mentally and physically. When the League of Assassins return for a second time to Arkham Asylum to mark Selina for death, the Joker comes to her rescue, whom Selina has been secretly working with to help handle the League while she goes and creates the Lazarus Pit to save her sister’s life. Batwing comes to the realization of who Holly Vanderhees is and allows her enough time to save her sister’s life, sacrificing his relationship with Batman and the rest of GCPD. In the end, Selina accomplishes everything she sets out to do, using the money from the priceless jewels to pay off her sister’s debt and establish a college fund for her in the future, but most of all, curing Maggie of cystic fibrosis. Together, Luck and Selina make a new beginning in Gotham, knowing their sacrifice will help save the future of the city.

Maas uses first person present to tell this epic story, switching between the characters of Selina Kyle and Luke Fox. She alternates chapters in order for the reader learn more about the characters and their past that includes the League of Assassins training for Selina and the war scars for Luke. The difference between the two characters his how they leave Gotham and then return to the dark city. For example, Selina Kyle leave Gotham City as a broken and battered girl who let the criminals of Gotham second guess her every move. She left as a failure, unable to care for herself and Maggie. Although, when she returns, Selina is not the little girl waiting for another fight to put food on the table. Instead, she is a graceful and articulate woman, using her new skills to show Gotham how strong she has become, ready to take on the whole city.

Nevertheless, Luke has a different journey in Gotham. He leaves the city where he was the top bat of the cave. His whole life has been about the high social elite, until he leaves the city for war. He wants to prove his worth to his parents and the city after becoming lost in the high social framework of the rich. Although when Luke returns, he is broken and abused from the war. He is diagnosed with PTSD as a result from the images and friends he couldn’t save. He uses professional boxing as his only way to escape the dark images, taking each blow as punishment.

However, Maas brings these two characters together, and others, through the theme of sacrifice. Selina sacrifices her freedom and chance for a future by going to the League of Assassins. She does this with pride, knowing her sister will finally be safe with a loving home, knowing she may never see Maggie again. And she does it again, when she returns to Gotham and plays all kinds of games with all of Gotham’s malicious criminals, while waiting for the League to hunt her down after stealing their precious formula for creating the Lazarus Pit. Then Luke shows his sacrifice by putting on his identity of Batwing, knowing that each night he’s out fighting crime may be his last. He knows that this extra-curricular activity could also make his PTSD more unstable. However, his joy for helping Gotham stay safe, is his focus and primary concern that pushes back his worries and fears.

Finally, there is Poison Ivy, a character who made her way into the novel with all means necessary. Her passion and love for botany is the sacrifice she offers after becoming a human experiment by force. The future of plant science and personal love was casted aside after an experiment gone wrong, leaving her alone and dejected. She sacrifices her love for a better future by determined to inform the people of Gotham the ways of a better environment that plants and people can enjoy together.

Sarah J. Maas takes readers on a trek into the emotional minds of characters, focusing on their weaknesses and strengths resulting in their sacrifices for a better future. Her characterization and story plot of Selina Kyle makes readers question whether Catwoman is a hero or villain. I believe that her goal of the story was to reinforce the ideas of female fatales that was greatly used in the past and introduce it to a new generation of literature lovers to discover how much they are willing to sacrifice for their own loved ones. Selina Kyle is a heroine for all to look up to, especially the ones who dig deep in their soul to help make their city and world a better place.

The Wicked King

Okay, so if you have seen any of my recent posts, you would know that my awesome and amazing librarian was able to snag a copy of probably the next book of the year!! Yes!! That’s right!!! I just got done reading The Wicked King by Holly Black!!!!

 

AAAAAHHHHAHAHAHHAHAH!!!

 

Be jealous fellow readers!!!

 

I literally like cried for an hour before opening the pages because if you’ve read the first book in this amazing series (The Cruel Prince). Then you would know the sorrow and grief every reader was feeling at the end of the novel. So, before I go into The Wicked King lets do a recap on book one.

 

So literally Holly Black is queen of the fairies!!! She takes us to another realm and describes things that I can’t even possibly imagine. Its like literally going into a Disney themed store with a special kind of alluring darkness that’ll pop out and hold you captive. In other words, basically you won’t be rescued and die of heartbreak. Anyways, the end of book one was like being punched in the heart over and over again. Just when I though Jude was going to find love and have a place in the fairy world, Locke doesn’t truly love her, Madoc is planning on running the kingdom, Dain betrays her, Cardan hates her guts but also wants to kiss her, and Taryn (her twin sister) played her like a fiddle and literally broke girl code in every way possible. Yeah, there were some issues that would like mentally break a person. Also, I would just like to clarify that Taryn and Locke need to be punched in the face, and let the crows or some other evil fair creature rip their hearts into shreds.

 

Okay….. I feel so much better saying that. #TeamJude

 

However, Jude overcomes it all like the badass she is and like takes control of the whole fairy kingdom with Cardon (the one who tortured her yet loves her but won’t admit it) under her control. #Judeforlife

 

WARNING THEIR MAY BE SPOILER DOWN BELOW…. I’M TRYING TO LIMIT THEM THE BEST I CAN. BEWARE…

 

So, book two picks up about five months later, and Jude is the new Leader of the Court of Shadows, as well as the King’s (Cardan) new seneschal. This new form of leadership/control is exactly what Jude has been striving for her entire life, especially watching the look on her father’s face. But this job becomes more than she can physically handle. She is losing sleep, she can’t trust anyone. And she hasn’t spoken to Taryn since the murder blood bath of crowning Cardan king. And I don’t blame her. I would be like taking an arrow and staking my twin in the heart if she did something like that.

 

Still, Jude must learn to work her way through the fairy politics in this sequel, and it becomes even harder to protect Cardan (in order to protect Oak) when it is revealed that there is a traitor among her spies. Black didn’t hold back when it came to character development. Everyone thinks Jude had it hard in the first book, Just wait until you read this dark shark of a book. There traitors, blood, and the introduction to the dark creatures hiding in the sea below! That’s right readers!!! Black takes us under the sea!!! I can’t wait until readers inter this new realm in the fairy world!!!

 

So, I won’t say anything further, due to spoilers and “oh my” moments that will blow your socks off.

 

BUT…

 

If you thought book one had plot twists…. It gets even worse in book two….

 

One event will change the future of everything!!!!

Be on the lookout for this dark crystal of a book in January 2019!

I CANNOT wait until book three to see what happens next!!!!!

 

 

 

Shadow of the Fox

One thing that I love about authors, is how they incorporate different legends and mythology around the world. There is something about heroes, gods, and goddesses that makes my reading heart leap for joy. My all time favorite mythological creature, spirit, or whatever you want to call it does in fact come from the Japanese culture.

It’s the Kitsune!!!

For those who don’t know, kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. And they derive from many Japanese folklores. Some see them as helpful messengers, while others view them as a trickster spirit. Basically, they’re somewhat of a Loki.

Although in my opinion, the kitsune remind me of Switzerland. They always seem to remain neutral when a war, or conflict is at hand, helping when they like too. Also, I do love someone who enjoys pranking others in a friendly way.

But anyways, when I learned that Julie Kagawa was publishing a story where the main character is in fact a Kitsune, I was fangirling so hard!!!

Shadow of the Fox, captured my heart within the first chapter, taking me on a journey which included falling in love with a characters (who I thought) was going to be the main protagonist. Although I was in tears when I learned it Suki wasn’t meant to be the character, or hero in the book.

However, I was then introduced to Yumeko, a fun loving girl who loves the thrill and heart of the pranks she pulls on the Monks who has raised her since she was left there as a child. Her kitsune powers is something she struggles to embrace the humanity she longs to be, while hiding the fox like powers within. Her favorite mentor/monk (father figure) Master Isao helps her on this journey, reminding her to stay true to herself.

Afraid of letting the fox take over, she sneaks out of the temple and into the forest hoping for a sign to help her fight the conflict between the fox and her humanity, she comes back to the temple to learn that an Oni and his demon minions are destroying her hope.

Looking for Master Isao, she finds him where he gives her the final task in her training. She must deliver one part of the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers and warn the monks of the Steel Feather Temple. After a tearful goodbye, she leaves the home she’s ever known and runs into Tatsumi, a Kage samurai with secrets of his own.

The one thing I loved about this book was the character development. Kagawa created characters that each had battles with the inner demon and yet she woven them into the overall story. She also left me hanging with major cliff hanger that I didn’t see coming. Yumeko’s sweet and caring soul is proof that even a kitsune can look past hate and spread kindness and love in the world!

If any of you have seen Teen Wolf and witnessed the Kitsune in Kira, you won’t want to miss this amazing read!!! This book is filled with adventure, soul, and samurais!!! Freaking samurais!!!

Be on the lookout for this book on OCTOBER 2, 2018!!!

What’s your favorite mythology???

A Hero’s Journey

This year, I decided to subscribe to the Uppercase Book Company. Basically, every month you pay a standard fee and receive a new book, Young Adult genre, along with some other cool book accessories. (So far, I’ve received so many bookish things, but my favorite is this amazing reading journal I got!!! It’s amazing!!! You’ll love it!!! Be Jealous!!!). I was so excited to see what my first book would be and I was literally blown away!!!

 

The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross was an amazing world to experience as a reader. I couldn’t tear my eyes away, forcing myself to finish it in one night (#noregrets). This fantasy tale follows Brienna who must master her passion of knowledge and be chosen by a patron before her time at school ends. When things don’t go her way, she feels lost and unworthy to continue her passion training until her journey takes a twisted path.

 

Instead of memorizing accounts of history and lineage, she soon spends her days caught in a war between two kingdoms. After learning that she not only has visions to help stop the battles, she must decide where she falls on the battle line. Will she return to the land and heritage abandoned her? Or will she help crown the kingdom with the rightful queen?

 

This strong heroine is an unforgettable person that will inspire girls for future generations. Brienna’s determination and courage is truly inspirational, especially her willingness to sacrifice everything, including herself, to do what’s right!!!
