PEEK of this book.
Here is a review of both of Melody Higdon's books:
Please e mail me if or when there is a third book by Melody L. Higdon. I read and loved both Gale- Borne Child and With Crystal Clarity. Every page was full of one of the best easy to read styles that i have encountered. Interesting characters were well chosen as well as the plot and the subject. It might be a science-fiction but 'Ive read it as if i was watching on the sidelines while the events were unfolding. She pulled me into the story. What can I say "hat's off" and congradulations.
About this book:
In this exciting follow-up to her first novel, With Crystal Clarity, Melody Higdon tells the story of young Terriat Paxton. Orphaned at 7 summers, Terriat has had a hard life in Galat, the village of her birth. Unwanted, neglected and abused, 12 summer-old Terriat has one chance to escape the sure prospect of unofficial slavery: apprenticeship into the Shii-Alaii Order. To get it, she must run away from Galat to compete in the annual trials against hundreds of others for one of very few slots. Her rivals are all older than Terriat, all are better prepared for the competition, and all are fully supported by their villages. Can she beat the odds against her and fulfill her lifes ambition? What will happen to her once she starts out on the path of adventure? Better ask Matonee, Warrior Leader of the First House of Cail, the most powerful person in the entire star system!
