ALORA

posted in: Books | 0

Alora is a normal fifteen-year-old girl who lives on a ranch in rural Montana. Her biggest excitement is the upcoming school dance. Until one day while taking a shower, she sees an image that almost seems real. A boy, with long brown hair and the most intense green eyes she’s ever seen. 

Little does she know that this vision is only the beginning of a great adventure. That her life will be forever altered as she discovers another realm, a strange world of magic and gifts, where a man full of evil power will use any means possible to capture and control her or else to end her life. 

“It was funny. It was exciting and I couldn’t put the book down. Clues were given along the way that caused more reading. I had to have more. I laughed. I sat on the edge of my seat. Just when things settled down another surprise fell off the page. This was a great read.”
“Alora is an absolute delight!”

 

Bound together as soulmates, something compels Alora and Kaevin to abandon the safety of their refuge for the dangers of Kaevin’s realm.

The soulmates arrive in the midst of a raging battle as Stone Clan warriors defend their capital, an attack made more deadly by the pervasive evil of her father. Alora and Kaevin face mortal danger as they fight against man and magick to preserve Kaevin’s home and heritage.

For Alora’s father will have her allegiance. Or her death.

“What an action packed ride! This is a great sequel and keeps you on the edge of your seat.”

“Sometimes a good story gets more thrilling, the keeps-you-up-late type of reading. The second book in the ALORA series is that kind of book and I don’t hesitate to recommend this exciting sequel to anyone who enjoys Fantasy.”

 


Alora is dying and no one knows why. The unseen effects of Vindrake’s torture linger long after the physical wounds have healed. Damaged as she is, Alora must still use her gift to battle Vindrake’s evil, though she hastens her death by doing it.

Vindrake, deluded into believing his cause is holy, continues his quest to dominate Tenavae, this time attacking the very foundation of all knowledge, aided by a terrible new weapon, which falls into his hands. As some who are loyal to Vindrake infiltrate the ranks of Stone Clan, Kaevin’s life hangs in the balance.

But true love is expressed in the ultimate sacrifice—to lay down one’s life for a friend.

“While not as light as the previous installments, this is still a great story, with deeper characters, and heroism in the true sense of the word. Add to that some clean, teen romance and you have a winning combination. Tamie Dearen has done it again.”

“Very satisfying with both nail-biting scenes and sweet moments that made me sigh.”

Author note: Writing Alora was like an escape to me–an escape to another world. I’ve been working with young people for so long, and I just love the way their minds work. I love their idealism and enthusiasm for life, so I love writing about teenagers.  I think the fun part of this book is the way the teens from this realm interact with the people from the medieval realm, and visa-versa. The young people from both realms easily accept new ideas and possibilities, while the adults are totally resistant. It is quite believable, since most adults have a pretty set view of their world and are quite difficult to convince in a case where they have made a mistake.
