"The first of hopefully many books about Lladrana"
I must be Robin Owens biggest fan. I have devoured each and
every one of her books after which I immediately placed them
on my groaning keeper shelf! I eagerly looked forward to her
first book written for Luna and I am happy to report that
she went above and beyond my wildest expectations with this
While hiking through the mountains in Colorado Alexa
Fitzwater tries to work through her grief at her best
friend's death. The next thing she knows is a silver net
floats down in front of her coalescing into a silver arch.
The music and scent of spring flowers assails her. Then she
hears a voice imploring her to 'Come to us'. What can she do
but obey? As she steps through the arch a beast attacks her
and she brutally fights back.
The next thing Alexa knows is she lands hard on a pavement
made with differently colored stones. When she looks up, a
circle of people holding swords stand over her. What is that
about? The circle of people does not look friendly and she
can't understand them. They also seem to want to test her.
Alexa just can't understand it at all. What has she gotten
herself into now?
This is only the beginning of this multi-faceted, fast paced
gem of a book from the extremely talented Robin D. Owens.
All I can hope for is that Robin will see fit to visit her
world of Lladrana in many more books. There are so many
characters and so many things I want to know about. I will
be eagerly awaiting more of her stories!
