Make sure to grab the companion novels in the Uncommon World Series!
Seren is suddenly widowed and in order to keep peace in her kingdom, she is essentially talked into hiding her dead husband. Her husband was thought to have a gift of seeing the unknown through a magical eye but it turns out that Seren had the true gift. So there you have a quickly built world that immediately captures you in magic and it also captures Ona – the opposite of Seren in temperament. Where Seren is quietly thoughtful and determined, Ona strikes out and asks permission after but have the commonality of both losing loved ones to the invaders.
This is a fun-filled story full of magic and adventure, battles and emotions. The theme of strong young women who take charge is just what I needed. There are also additional books in the series but each are unique so you don’t need to read them in order. There is a bit of romance and some violence but nothing too graphic.
When she’s not writing, Alisha teaches Thai kickboxing, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and krav maga at her family’s dojo just outside of Nashville. That may be why writing fight scenes is her favorite.Award-winning author Alisha Klapheke wants to infuse your life with unique magic, far-flung fantasy settings, and romance. Her inspiration springs from medieval art and artifacts, the world travel she enjoys with her husband, and the fantasy she grew up reading when she was supposed to be doing her math homework.
