Her choice will change the world.

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion and an Eskrima pro. Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its restraints.

Medical science wasn't working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. ...

Overview

Her choice will change the world.

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion and an Eskrima pro. Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its restraints.

Medical science wasn't working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure. It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional.

Nothing was ever free and that included miracles. Abruptly, Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies, questioning everything she's ever known as truth. Never had she believed she'd be thrown headfirst into a world of good and evil, magic and Gods.

Trapped in the middle of a war she had never known existed both parties demanded her allegiance. Ari was a catalyst that could change all the rules of the Earth. But when the time comes to make a choice will she be strong enough to know right from wrong?

**AN: The book has been re-edited and re-formatted to correct several reported errors.**

Meet the Author

Victoria has currently rooted in New York, going to college at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division. Though she hates being cold, she toughs out the bitter New York winter for the love of family.

She writes in her spare time before and after the day job. Victoria enjoys the writing process and the creation of new characters and realities. She works by outline, less chance of falling off the wagon that way.

She reads anything she can get her hands on, and devours a book in five hours or less. Victoria reads the Young adult books and the science fiction fantasy books more than anything else. However, she can be caught reading romance novels, and classics at times depending on her whimsy. Since her imagination is well tuned, it's difficult for her to read/watch anything horror or suspenseful. (She has a tendency for prolonged nightmares if she does.)

    I really want to give this book 5 stars, but as it was the first

    I really want to give this book 5 stars, but as it was the first book for this author, there was room for her to grow.  I cannot wait to read the next book in the series as the plot carried you through the book like you are sitting in a theater watching a great movie.  Awesome job Victoria, you deserve snickerdoodles for your birthday!

    Of Gaea starts out just like any other book with a teenage girl

    Of Gaea starts out just like any other book with a teenage girl for the main character. There is one difference, Ari, the main character of this book is in wheelchair and very much hating this fact.
    Aside from Ari's bitterness and deprecation of her situation, I think she's an outstanding role model for children, who like herself, are disabled, even if that disability is different from Ari's.
    Like most people in high school, Ari has a bully, Damia, the girl who is the reason behind Ari's current situation. Couple that with Damia's apparent obsession with Ari's best friend and hotty Sasha and it's a disturbing outcome.
    A lot of people may have some trouble with the names.. Though they aren't too hard to pronounce even if the spelling throws you off.
    Lyris is fun character. I can almost picture the fun Victoria had in creating her unique brand of "crazy" She will definitely throw the reader for a loop or two.
    As things start to piece themselves together for Ari, you can sense the inner struggle she deals with. People who she's trusted her entire life she's unsure of whether or not she can still trust them. That's something every reader can relate to.
    Ghita reminds me of my grandparents, always pushing their beliefs on me when it wasn't the path destined for me. I felt every shred of hurt from Ari as Ghita tried again and again to force hers on Ari.
    I am very impressed with this author's knowledge of Gaea and the Pagan ways. She's got our ways down to a tee which is a rarity, though I suspect you may have pagan blood in her veins if she doesn't openly practice.
    This book is not only a fascinating fictional read, it's also a great way to gain some inside into those of us who follow the old ways.
    This book is amazingly written and I eagerly await the next installment of it.. I give this book 5 of 5...Victoria keep coming out with books of this magnitude and you'll go far >^.^<
