Kyra is a teenage girl who has problems fitting in with school and friends and just her whole life in general; even her family seems odd. But when she closes her eyes at night, she is transported to another world, a place of wonder and joy, where she finds her real friends, and everything she's ever wanted. And then the day arrives when she is finally transported to this world, and it is just as incredible as she ever imagined. The people already know who she is, and when she meets the beautiful queen, she can't get over how much she looks like her own mother; even the queen's husband looks just like her father, which is just weird. But her memories of her old life and old world are starting to disappear, and she has no idea why. Nevertheless, Enchantus is just as wondrous as it was in her dreams.
But everything isn't perfect. There is an evil in the world of Aisis Lip that threatens not just the kingdom of Enchantus, but every living thing in the realm. Its name is Jolus the Malignant and it wants to bring an end to everything, to enslave everyone, and become ruler of all.
Kyra is the Chosen One, and she knows it's up to her to face this Jolus the Malignant and try to save Aisis Lip.. Enchantus is everything she imagined it would be, and she doesn't want to leave, but is she willing to risk her life to save everyone and everything? Is she willing to face this creature and try to kill it? Is she willing to fight for the once place she feels she truly belongs? She is just a teenage girl after all, even if she is the Chosen One. Can she really do it?
Alex C. Telander was born in Málaga, Spain. He started writing with a vested interest at the age of fifteen with short stories both for class and for personal enjoyment. In his last few years at his high school, he started his own newspaper, the St. Anthony’s Gazette, where he published some of his stories, as well as a wealth of other material that he mostly wrote for the paper. With a love for America and its ways, he attended San José State University, in San José, California, majoring in biology with a concentration in marine biology. Deciding this wasn’t as concentrated as he wanted, he transferred to Long Beach State, where they offered a marine biology major. It was at the end of the first semester that he decided marine biology and, realistically, the math and physics wasn’t for him, and he would be honest and follow his real passion, creative writing. He took a number of writing classes with many talented professors, working closely under Lisa Glatt (author of A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That) and Brian Alan Lane. He also worked for four years at the student-run newspaper, the Long Beach Union, starting as a staff writer, then News Editor, Literature Editor (which he created, getting contacts and requesting review copies from publishers), Associate Editor, and in his last year as Editor-in-Chief. Apart from various articles and book reviews, he had some short prose pieces and poetry published in the creative arts section. Alex is a writer, book reviewer, and interviewer. He’s been seriously writing for about fifteen years, starting when he was a teenager. He has finished three novels: a young adult fantasy, a mystery/thriller, and a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel he recently finished, the first in a four-book series. He is currently working on a big historical fiction epic set in fifth century Britain called Wyrd (which is Anglo-Saxon for “fate”). Alex is also a reading addict, finishing an average of 100 books in the last three years, and reviews just about everything he finishes. In addition to reviewing for the San Francisco Book Review and the Sacramento Book Review, he puts all his reviews up on his website, Bookbanter (www.bookbanter.net). BookBanter began as a dream that became a reality: you can now find more than fifty exclusive interviews on the site, both audio and written, as well as more than 600 book reviews.
