The third installment of “The Gateway Chronicles” will take us back to the mythical land of Alitheia for the third time. Darcy Pennington waits out the rest of her freshman year, eagerly waiting for summer to arrive. She knows that once summer is here, she will be able to help her dear friend, the nark Yahto Veli, who sacrificed himself to the Oracle to set her free. As her third trip to camp and to the magical land Alitheia approaches, Darcy wonders if she’s capable of the daring rescue she wants to embark upon, but she soon realizes much more is at stake.
Her return to Cedar Cove Family Camp is marked by a mysterious disappearance, and in Alitheia a new message from the Oracle adds to the riddles the Six must decipher if they are to expel the dark evil that hovers over the land. The six friends and the alchemist Rubidius plan a sea journey that will take them beyond the borders of Alitheia and into the realm of a legendary archipelago. Tellius winds up joining them, and the foes they meet along the way are both deceptive and charming, while the Oracle’s riddles seem to dog them at every turn. Darcy hides a secret from her best friend Sam that could test their friendship beyond the breaking point, and an unexpected development in her relationship with Tellius changes everything and teaches her that the deepest scars sometimes cannot be seen.
Darcy isn’t sure if she’s prepared for another meeting with the Oracle, but if she wants to have any chance of saving her friend, she must try. To complicate matters, the evil they left behind in Alitheia has not remained dormant.
A whirlwind of action, fun, adventure and magic, “The White Thread” is the perfect summer read for fantasy-lovers, young and old. Among the themes explored are:
Power to the people! A strong message of empowerment that will inspire the young women and men of today
Good versus evil: a moral framework that teaches the importance of doing the right thing, even in the face of great adversity
The power of friendship
Destiny, fate and prophecy – and how we all have a choice, no matter how pre-determined things may seem
