Okay, as promised the back cover blurb for FINDING ANGEL by KAT HECKENBACH.

The story begins with thirteen-year-old Angel.

She doesn't know where she's from, but she knows she doesn't belong. With no one who understands her obsession for books about other worlds and magical creatures, Angel spends much of her time alone, immersed in the paper and ink worlds where she feels most comfortable. Despite a loving foster family, and a little brother who holds the most special place in her heart, she dreams of living in a land that could exist only in the pages of a fantasy novel.

Then she meets Gregor, who produces an indefinable sense of familiarity within her. The feeling comes to light when Gregor is forced to use his magic Talent to save Angel's life, reviving her memory of an attack seven years prior--the attack that produced her amnesia and stole her from her real parents.

Angel realizes she's been given a chance to discover her true identity, one that Gregor assures her includes a magic Talent of her own. She makes the hardest decision of her life, and follows Gregor to her homeland.

She experiences a world unlike any she has imagined, complete with Elven musicians who sing the message of the heavens, the story of creation, and the magical signature of its Creator. Everything she learns reinforces what she has always believed--true magic is a spiritual gift, infused into the soul, and designed by a divine hand.

While honing her powers, Angel must grapple with the consequences of her decisions. And soon she is well on her way along a path of self-discovery that leads directly to her role in an ancient Prophecy...*****************************

This almost sounds reminiscent of The Neverending Story, except with a Christian element.

Michelle Gregory said...

why does fantasy almost always have a "prophecy"? hmmm... sounds like a book i'd read.

Weronika said...

That sounds very interesting. I'll look for this one!

KM Wilsher said...

Yeah, Michelle,
I think 3 of the books I've spotlighted in BDoS do.
I think we as Christians love prophecy :) Mirrors the story of our Savior! Maybe that was your point.
I love fantasy!

Weronika, Kat Heckenbach is a name to watch. She's up and coming!
I think FINDING ANGEL is great!

I'm so glad you stopped by!

KM - too bad I didn't see you on Brandon's blog first - seems we have a bit in common. I write cross genre fiction (fantasy,sci-fi, paranormal etc. with a touch of romance thrown in for good measure and 'cause I like it) but ALL are written with Christ in mind. It is sooo nice to find others who believe He can shine through no matter the genre ! Thanks ever so much for visiting my blog. I'll have to stop back here when I have a free moment to catch up on some of your posts :D
