This book is brand new in the young adult genre.
I was curious about it and liked the fact that the worldview is said to be Christian.
I gave this book right to my teen to see what she thought. She enjoyed the story so much, she wanted to know right away if there was a sequel. We looked it up, and no, there is no sequel yet. But this is a new author, so we will be watching for more!
Here’s what our teen has to say:
- “Definitely a good book for highschoolers because of fast paced action and mystery.
- Pulls you in. You have to read til the end right away.
- Great imagery.
- It should be turned into a movie! I know all my friends would go see it.
- I can relate to Hadley (main character).
- Even people I’m friends with who aren’t Christian would love this book.
- Lots of plot twists. You expect one thing and then something opposite happens. It blows your mind.”
The Official Word:
“In the mythical city of N’de lives thirteen-year-old Hadlay and her people, the Ramash. Scorned and abused by the unloving and absent Emperor, the Ramash are poor people, placed second to the ruling class of the Oresed. Young but bold, Hadlay rages against the injustice in her city. When she is chosen for the honor of serving the Prince in the Tower, she hopes to find a way to right the wrong… but soon discovers that things are worse than she believed.
Crafting powerful narrative and creative characters, author L. K. Malone spins a compelling tale that combines exciting entertainment and the Christian story. In The Mirror of N’de, readers will empathize with the desires of an oppressed people, will anger at the affliction of a cruel adversary, and ultimately rejoice with the revelation of a Savior.”
