Overview

A Clearing in the Forest by Kim Love Stump

Princess Adriana is about to leave the Kingdom of Ayrden on the Journey of her sixteenth year.

If she is ever to ascend to the throne, Adriana must go—alone and unarmed—into the unknown. She’s been trained and gifted for the Journey, just like all the royals who preceded her—even the ones who never returned.

Adriana leaves Ayrden on Sultan, the black stallion gifted to her by her brother just the day before at her birthday celebration. With bravery in her heart and hopes for a quick return, she soon encounters three paths: one of grass, one of gold, and one of gemstones. She chooses the pragmatic path of grass. Although it seems safe, and the landscape familiar, she quickly finds that she will have to overcome nearly impossible challenges. Ultimately, an unexpected friendship changes not only Adriana, but the very kingdom she someday hopes to rule. The question is, will the friendship turn into everlasting love?

Title: A Clearing In The Forest Author: Kim Love Stump Genre: YA Fantasy Format: Ebook Pages: 207 Rating: 5 Heat: 1 Thoughts: Oh man I hope this is a series! I absolutely LOVED this story! The world that Ms. Stump created was riveting and magical, I couldn't wait to see where Adriana's journey was going to take her next. The fact that her journey was more about her choices than it was the destination pulled me in even more. There was no way to predict how, where, what, anything really and that was so refreshing. Usually the antagonist is a person, clearly defined, but in this story the antagonist seemed to be the consequence of a decision, good or bad. Yes, there were characters that were antagonistic that Adriana had to escape from or outmaneuver but the constant was pretty much her mind. This is a great story to help show someone, young or old, that our decisions/reactions shape the outcome of any situation. And if our actions shape an outcome then it stands to reason that it's the same for everyone and the only thing we can control is ourselves. It's almost freeing when that fact is realized, ultimately your choices are yours. Yes, they can be influenced by outside forces but once a decision is made it was completely your choice and there is no one to blame but yourself if it was the wrong choice. The world would be a better place if more people would realize that. Kudos Ms. Stump for having such a powerful lesson in what I believe was such a fun story!
