By T.M. Becker
A father’s neglect…a brother’s betrayal…
Answers…that’s all Arabella ever wanted. Answers about how to vanquish the recurring nightmares that plague her…or where her mother came from and why she disappeared so many years ago.
To fifteen-year-old Arabella, the answers must lie in the books her mother left behind when she vanished.
But the books are written in an ancient language shrouded in mystery—the language of magic. And in the conquered land of Atruria, magic is forbidden.
Instead of answers, the books offer only more questions—and a death sentence when her brother discovers her secret.
Arabella is resigned to her fate, until late one night her cell door bursts open.
For though magic has been forbidden in Atruria…it has not been forgotten.
T. M. Becker, called Steph by her friends and family, is the author of the young adult fantasy, Full Moon Rising. Always a fan of second breakfasts, hobbits, and Grimm’s fairytales, she spent her childhood afternoons buried in a book or acting out scenes from her imagination in the woods beside her house. In high school, she discovered a passion for theatre and even began a recording of The Hobbit for her younger siblings, complete with different voices for each character.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and nine children in a log house full of books, soccer gear, and perpetually mismatched socks.
One of her favorite things about writing is how a single image or idea can blossom into an entire series. In her spare time, (what is that?!) she enjoys teaching, cooking, trail running, and watching her sons and daughters play soccer.
