With “The Prism of Ashlai”, Christine E. Schulze has penned a beautiful tale of a young orphaned girl destined to lead the fight against evil in her world. In spite of the recent devastation in her life, Ashlai is tasked with finding and recovering seven shards of a prism. She has one piece, left for her by the mother she has never known. She must find the other six, each held by someone with their own unique strengths, but Ashlai, who knows little of who she is or where she came from, is to be their leader. As she learns to reach out beyond their appearances and personalities, she discovers she has friends and allies on her perilous quest! With everyone looking to Ashlai for leadership and guidance, she evolves from a scared girl into a fierce warrior who has learned to follow her heart as she searches for the promised answers to who she is. Can Ashlai save her world and those she loves or will she be forced to choose?
With fast pacing and detailed scenes, “The Prism of Ashlai” is a captivating young adult book that transported me into a fantasy world full of the wonderful creations of Christine Schulze’s imagination! I found myself believing in this vividly detailed world and feeling the intense emotions as the surroundings swirled around me. Ashlai’s strength of character and her ability to face her fears head on makes her an outstanding role model for younger teens!
