appropriate for young adult
La'tiera was groomed for one purpose in life. She was isolated, pampered, and protected. Her world depended on her ultimate sacrifice, death. The time was near. A small child makes way for a change in La'tier's life. The young woman craves companionship and gladly accepts the friendship of Dal, even though he was an outside. Dal knows the truth; La'tiera's death will bring evil and destruction, not the salvation she expects. He and his troupe kidnap her in hopes of revealing the truth. Her life is the key to salvation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Too often, we are loyal to an ideal without knowing why. Gloria Oliver is a talented author. She allows La'tiera to slowly grow and mature. The characters are real to life. This fantasy is appropriate for young adult. It will also appeal to adults.
