Rhea Aralia lived an uneventful life in Virginia, until the fateful night of her kidnapping. Taken to a strange realm of destruction, despair, and mysterious people with dark secrets, the young woman must learn a new way of life to survive.

With the help of her new companions, Rhea discovers the courage to defy the tyrant King Verikhan and his heir, the cleverness to deceive the court, and the power within herself to transform this world of darkness into one of beauty and hope.

Will Rhea triumph over those who seek her destruction, or will she be forever lost in the darkness known as Kaldalangra?

I had the honor of reading The Lady of Steinbrekka as it was being written, so I’ve seen this novel grow since the beginning. I am in love with the final product, a story that’s taken me on a thrilling journey time and time again into a fascinating world with even more fascinating people. I’m a sucker for a good fantasy story, and this one drew me right in. It never gets old, and is a book you'll want to read and re-read over and over again. The Lady of Steinbrekka centers on Rhea, a woman kidnapped from her world (Earth) and taken to a strange place where she is destined for a fate of misery and even imprisonment, of sorts. With only her wits and natural connection with nature (and the help of her newfound friends), she must find a way to escape this place with its evil tyrant king and restore balance to the world. There are many twists and turns throughout the novel, from characters who are more than what they seem to realms that reawaken with Rhea’s arrival to unique animal creatures that are as interesting as they are dangerous. Her journey of self-discovery is a pleasure to watch and the blossoming romance between her and another character is charming, even when you want to smack them both upside the head and tell them to just admit they love each other already. The Lady of Steinbrekka is Strong’s first novel, and it’s a fantastic display of her writing talents. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Rhea (and I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil it!) and take more literary adventures into her world. One thing I’m hoping to see (consider this me challenging you, Kristi) is a bit of a darker side to Rhea and some of the other characters, more obstacles to overcome, perhaps even some more of those delicious menfolk battling it out in the gardens :).

A book has to grab me in the fist few pages. This book did just that! I fell in love with the characters so this was a fast read. I found myself wanting to more about the past of the characters and where they will go from here. Looking forward to the second book!

Amazing!!! The Lady of Steinbrekka transports the reader into another dimension. It is an exquisite combination of The Looking Glass Wars meets Graceling entwined with The Last Knight. I simply could not put it down and lost valuable sleep, but it was worth every minute. Adults and Teens alike will devour this book enjoying an exciting adventure that surprises and shocks the reader at every turn. Kudos to Kristi Strong on her debuting novel! I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy as I am sure the characters will not disappoint.
