Alara’s Call by Kristen Stieffel releases September 19, 2017 from L2L2 Publishing.
Congratulations, Kristen Stieffel!
From the back cover:
Tales are often told of heroes who fulfill ancient prophecies. Alara’s Call is the tale of a woman who gives new ones.
Alara sees visions of other’s futures, but never her own.
A young clergywoman with a fiery passion for her Telshan faith, she has been assigned to a mission abroad but longs to lead a congregation in her homeland. Her father, the prime minister, jeopardizes her dream and her safety when he coerces her into what he calls a diplomatic mission.
But it’s a ruse.
The trip is meant to end with her marriage to the crown prince of a foreign nation, where members of Alara’s faith are persecuted and women oppressed. All for a trade agreement her father is desperate to enact.
But her mentor intervenes and takes Alara to Dorrel, the suitor she left behind. They believe they are safe, but foreign soldiers are under orders to bring Alara to the king’s palace…by any means necessary.
We also want to thank Sara Helwe of Sara Helwe Digital Arts for another gorgeous cover. This cover artist has been such a blessing to our company, and we are grateful to have her on our team.
And thank you, dear readers, for joining us today.
