Author: Lauricia Matuska

Book Description:
Three hundred years after a great war shattered the Council of Races, the warriors of Rüddan have all but eradicated their cousins, the faerie Aethel. In so doing, they decimated the Dryht sages and enslaved mortal Humanity. Now a voice rises above the chaos and calls her people to rebel. Young Sabine, one of the Human slaves, must learn to overcome centuries of lies and prejudice to forge an alliance between four enemy races. But what chance does she stand to overthrow the Rüddan with her dangerous secret, a secret that threatens not only her own life but the existence of all the races on the planet?

A tall, slender figure stood before the wall, a dim shadow outlined in sharp angles by the golden light.  Prompted by some silent cue, it stepped into the light and seemed to shrink, as if walking away.  Suddenly, it disappeared, and the yellow light began to fade.  Before Sabine knew what was happening, the glow winked out so abruptly that bright spots danced through her vision.  She waited for her eyes to adjust to the darkness.

When she could see once more, the wall looked normal, each brick placed upon another in its ordinary manner.
Magic!  Sabine began to tremble.

    1. To choose one, I would say C.S. Lewis. The Chronicles of Narnia series was my first taste of the fantasy genre. Other authors I really admire include J.R.R. Tolkien, Madeline L'Engle, Ursula K. Le Guin, H.M. Hoover, Neil Gaiman, and Tad Williams.
