An orphan girl discovers she may be more than she ever expected. Could she be a heroine of historic proportion?
Auriella is a teen orphan who is forced to flee from her less than satisfying but secure life when she is sought out by the evil Shadow Lords. She endures her self imposed indenture to Hazella, a witch who abuses here. She befriends a dwarf named Rupert and a pixie named Cassi. They play a big part in helping her change her future.
Auriella is an insecure character who fears change and the unknown. She is thrust into dangerous situations and barely escapes. She discovers she has a role in the world and seeks to become the person she wants and needs to be. The story is a coming of age tale with mystic overtones. This is a good first installment in what I hope will be a continuingly delightful YA series.
I recommend the book for teens and upper elementary readers.
