A Young Adult Fantasy

This book series is wonderful for young adults and older adults as well. It's a written to appeal to everyone over the age of 10 or so.

First Truth - The Truth Series Book 1

First Truth is the first book in the Truth series.

Alissa grew up with stories from her father, until he disappeared when she was five and she was left alone with her mother. Then one day she is told she has to journey to the place of her father's tales, a place of magic called the Hold. First Truth is the tale of Alissa's trip to a place she isn't even sure exists.

Excerpt from the book: The first faint stirrings of panic began to swirl through Alissa, and she swallowed hard. "This is ridiculous. I'm not going." She felt her throat catch. "If you don't want me anymore, I--I'll leave, but don't expect me to believe this!" Her mother's eyes grew wide. "Of course I don't want you to go, but you belong to the Hold. For almost twenty years you were mine, but look at you."

Hidden Truth - The Truth Series Book 2

Hidden Truth is the second book in the truth series.

Alissa is developing her magical powers in this, the second book in the Truth series. The evil Keeper Bailic is still causing problems though, and seems to think Strell is the solution to his problem. Can Alissa learn enough magic in time to save Strell and herself?

Excerpt from the book: Alissa crept up the stairway, her skirts gripped tightly in her fists. Gaze fixed upon the landing, she felt for each step, easing herself up in what she hoped looked like casual disinterest. This was not a good idea, she thought. She had been making Bailic's meals all winter and knew risking his attention was asking for trouble. Taking a slow breath, she hesitated, the opposing feelings of curiosity and common sense teetering in her. Pulse quickening, she resumed her upward motion. Curiosity won. Not that that was a surprise, she admitted.

Forgotten Truth - The Truth Series Book 3

Forgotten Truth is the third book in the truth series.

When Alissa accidentally travels back in time 400 years, she sees the Hold as it was then, filled with the people and places of that time. She also has to deal with a new problem, preventing herself from turning into a beast full-time.

Excerpt from the book: Alissa's long tail made an exasperated twitch. She was sure Beast had done it. Alissa wouldn't have minded, but it shifted their momentum, and Alissa gasped. Beast said nothing as she impatiently abandoned this pass and angled Alissa back to the forest. Beside her came a faint chitter as Talon, Alissa's pet kestrel, protested at the sharp shift of direction.

Lost Truth - The Truth Series Book 4

Lost Truth is the fourth book in the truth series.

In this, what some consider the best and last of the Truth series, Alissa heads to a distant land where she finds other Masters, and trouble. Will she finally decide between the two men? Will she solve the mystery surrounding the Masters? And will she stay alive to savor any knowledge that she finds?

Excerpt from this book: This morning, before the stars had vanished, she had flown across the mountains to her mother's abandoned farm in the foothills with the excuse of gathering eggs from the chickens that remained there. In truth, she was seeing if the snow was gone and all the passes were open. They were, thrilling her to no end. Now perhaps she could convince Useless to let her leave and find her mother.
