The Hidden Lights (The Soul Seer Saga, Book 1)

by Kestra Pingree

Sometimes hope in something better is the last thing holding a person together.

The people on the land below are scattered and broken, but in the sky exists the perfect civilization: the Cloud. For being such a prominent legend, few on the Soil really know anything about the Cloud; the worthy few picked for ascension are never allowed to touch the Soil ever again.

Rimn Balentin is one of the unique individuals on the Soil who is considered gifted. She’s an empath, and that means she never gets a chance to be alone with her own feelings because she’s constantly being bombarded by the feelings of others. While many view her ability as a gift, she sees it as more of a curse. Her gift did lead to her being captured and forced into slavery after all. There is nothing left but pain on the Soil for Rimn and reaching the Cloud is all the hope she has left, but how will she ever reach the Cloud when she’s trapped in a desert so far away and being held against her will? A desert dweller named Squall just might have the answer for that, but nothing’s ever so easy, and even if Rimn is freed, she has a long way to go before she’ll be able to reach the land of legend.

***A light sci-fi fantasy read with characters to fall in love with. No crazy cliffhangers, but there’s an overarching story, so not all loose ends will be tied up at the end of each bookâ??until we reach the end of the journey of course!

Each book is around 40,000-50,000 words.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth

by Jules Verne

Jules Verne’s classic 1864 sci-fi novel tells the story of German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snaefellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.

Journey has been read by millions of inquisitive minds and has influenced some of the worlds most famous explorers such as Admiral Byrd, who announced on his 1926 expedition to the North Pole that “it is Jules Verne who is bringing me.”

Renowned cave explorer Norbert Casteret said in 1938 that A Journey to the Center of the Earth was a “marvelous book which impressed and fascinated me more than any other. I have re-read it many times, and I confess I sometimes re-read it still, each time finding anew the joys and enthusiasm of my childhood.”
