Cover links to Amazon

To keep her safe, twenty-six-year-old Hazel Michelli's parents never told her she was adopted, or that her birthplace was in an alternative land where magic and monsters exist. She found out the truth the day a ferocious winged creature stole her from her Denver apartment and delivered her to Lucian, the sadistic Lifeforce magician who happens to be Hazel’s biological father.

“Dysfunctional family” takes on new meaning when she learns Lucian must sacrifice a daughter to maintain immortality and take over the Realm. When Hazel’s younger half-sister disappears just days before the Rite, Lucian moves Hazel to the top of the sacrificial short list.

Afraid, yet compelled to protect her four-year-old half-sister, Hazel races between both worlds, searching for Meara while being hunted by Lucian. Their lives, and the future of the Realm, leave her no room for failure.

Priase for Finding Meara

I thought this book was quite captivating. It was one of only a few books that I was not able to guess ahead. Each twist and turn took me by surprise, I just couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book for anyone that wants to be entertained and whisked away on a great adventure.

Lara Schiffbauer's debut novel is a perfect summer read for fantasy fans. The story starts out strong with riveting action and keeps getting better from there.

Finding Meara is exceptionally well written with great hooks at the end of each chapter to keep the pages turning. It's a story full of suspense and friendship that's all wrapped up with a satisfying conclusion, but with enough left unresolved that I am looking forward to finding out what happens in book two.

I'm very impressed with Lara's debut novel and I highly recommend it for young adult and adult fans of the fantasy genre.

After reading just two pages from Finding Meara, I was hooked. I couldn't wait to read more and find out what else was going to happen to Hazel.
