Terra, and author Kai Strand, are very special guests in Cynthia's Attic today!
Today (June 1st) is a very special day to me. A friend that I’ve know since she was born (Our mothers were very good friends and I’m 6 weeks older!) celebrates her birthday today as does my closest friend in the whole entire world. Both ladies are tremendously important to me and I find it so ironic that they were born the exact same day, the exact same year. So happy birthday to Erin and Vera. May you some day meet each other. You have more than your birthday and me in common.
Poor Terra, from BEWARE OF THE WHITE, isn’t as lucky as me. As a matter of fact she has no close friends. She only has acquaintances. Terra is mature for her age and generally that is a very hard thing for a girl who is still in school. Mature girls don’t gossip about ugly outfits or giggle when someone trips up the stairs. They speak to adults instead of behind their backs. They generally only have close friends if they are lucky enough to find other girls who are mature for their age.
Or if they meet an 18 year old guy assigned to protect them. Then even the most mature of girls blushes before she becomes a close friend of his.
About the book
As is tradition, Terra learns on the Saturday past her twelfth birthday that she is a Natures Spirit. It is her legacy to serve in the peaceful underground city of Concord. Learning she is named in a prophecy and being threatened by the leader of the death tribe…that part breaks tradition.
The Trepidus are the death janitors of the Underworld, responsible for delivering fatalities with a smile and cleaning up after themselves until Blanco, recent leader of the Trepidus, decides the day of reckoning for his species is coming. He begins organizing the creatures and leads them toward an uprising. The prophecy says there is one person who can stop him. Terra.
With Spirit of Security, Frank, protecting her, Terra attempts to complete her training and discover her Spirit talents. Together, they go on a rogue investigation to learn how to defeat Blanco. In the end, it comes down to a battle of the minds. The future of Concord is at stake. Will Blanco, the older, more experienced being win? Or will Terra, the young, new Spirit earn back the peace of the city?
