Water and land gods clash while uncommon people suffer and prevail in this story with a female character at the helm.
Alana is a strong female character that overcomes many hardships and stays the course for being brave and enduring evils to make the world a better place. She shows compassion for those that are her foes and holds nature in high respect. She is a skilled leader and people follow her because she is their chosen leader. Sword play and archery are just accessories for this character who rides through the world dragon back in the direction of her future, which she does not fear.
C.C. Lewia has a passion for storytelling and she herself is a strong female character. Her first book Alana of the East and the Shadow Beast is an accomplishment and the first in her writing career. Her writing career will blossom with each year that passes; she does not confine herself to one genre of storytelling and has many stories to tell, all which will reverberate from her voice.
