Season of Sacrifice
Alana Woodsinger wasn’t ready to accept the responsibility of being her people’s religious leader, but the Great Tree chose her. Now she communes daily with the Tree, guiding her people. When two village children are kidnapped by wily visitors from the inland, Alana must use her powers to guide a trio of villagers in rescuing the twins, even after the twins have been manipulated to resist rescue. What must Alana—and others—sacrifice to bring the reluctant children home?
Season of Sacrifice is a good, entertaining stand-alone novel that takes a fresh look at the way two distinctly different cultures clash, yet rely upon one another, and how they relate where it counts.
