YA novel by our own Dawn Witzke:
It is year 63 of the New Era. Nacerma has rid itself of society’s ills – homelessness, hunger, suffering and religious differences – becoming a country of peace.
Seventeen-year-old, Aadi, seeks something deeper than the life Nacerma offers. When her former boyfriend, turned priest, asks her to risk her life for her faith, she accepts the meaningful quest.
Mischa Llient is wanted by the Guard and needs to get out of town for awhile. When he’s asked to keep his best friend, Aadi, safe, he jumps at the chance.
Together, their faith and friendship are tested as they face thieves, highwaymen, the Red Guard and their own inner demons as their feelings for one another are revealed. Will their friendship survive the quest? Will they?
