Longwood, FL (Vocus) July 10, 2010
Tachee, the last of the mantii race, awakes one morning to find her usual routine and lone companion taken away from her suddenly. In the elvish city of Un Wava, Tachee begins discovering her skills, learns a history she never knew, and develops much longed for friends. She finds contentment and then is called to leave it all behind by someone she never thought she would encounter. Unsure of herself but discontent to stay, she chooses to obey and embarks on a journey that reveals and develops her true character. Danger, excitement, and friendship await her on her journey in author Athena Taylor Lester’s new Xulon Press title, The Chosen: A Light in the Darkness ($22.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-290-7).
“In the non-threatening way that only fiction can, The Chosen will give readers a fun and enjoyable escape that identifies with the fears and challenges of individual identity and pursuing your own destiny,” the author says. “This is a fabulous adventure story that is fun and exciting to read but leaves a residue of truth in your heart.”
Lester, a 15-year-old home school girl who is pursuing her own destiny of encouraging others through enjoyable fantasy novels, has used her God-given gifts, abilities, and opportunities to create an adventure that is exciting to read for both youth and adults. It is her hope that the main themes found within this book—that of trust and obedience, faith and identity—will help teach others to serve their God with their created purpose.
