Once a queen. Now a fugitive. Can a sacred song transform Gailea into a warrior? Despite ever-growing song-spell skills, Gailea has shed her crown to flee the kingdom she conquered…and the cruel man she loved. Hunted by assassins, she must hide her children and vanish, disguising herself as a teacher at an extraordinary magic academy.Across the sea, sadistic King Samil has usurped the Carmennan throne, using forbidden spells and his talented young protégé, Mikanah, to seduce and enslave minds. His plan to crush the entire Lozolian Realm with an unstoppable army demands one last sacrifice: an innocent music mage whose soul can be twisted to craft the ultimate weapon. When a girl escapes Samil’s dungeons to warn of the plot, Gailea must reveal her gifts to join the elite, mysteriously selected music Guardians and confront the rising evil. But even the Guardians have their own agendas. Can Gailea trust Iolana, the former prisoner whose scheme to save the man she loves could doom them all? Or the very man who sent assassins to hunt Gailea and her children? Or even Mikanah, ripped unwillingly from King Samil’s side to accept a duty he despises. Does he seek redemption, vengeance, or power? Ahead lies a treacherous journey to rally the Guardians and confront their overwhelming enemies. But Gailea’s vow to reunite with her children demands a safe realm. And she will vanquish anyone, king, or ally, who stands against her. The trials of war and the power of music rush to a crescendo in this epic third installment of The Gailean Quartet.
Who am I, I asked myself
I do not always know
Somedays I try to be another girl
Someone in fancy clothes.
I curl my hair all up
I put on my paint and then
I paste a smile upon my lips
Pretend I’m all-a-grin.
The whole world sees me just like this
All nice and pretty-secure.
But Lord, you see the inward parts
The heart and mind impure.
Thank you, Lord, for sending your dear Son
He cleansed and made me whole
I am your child, You’re my God
That’s all I need to know,
“Una divertida y hermosamente ilustrada fantasía moderna sobre el precioso proceso de dar vida. La concepción se convierte en una accesible historia para todos.”
Janet Teodori, MD, Neuróloga Pediátrica y miembro APPPAH
“En este mundo nuestro donde arte y ciencia se cruzan, este libro es una verdadera gema. Cuentos de hadas pueden traer a nuestra mente la verdadera sabiduría del inconsciente y enriquecer nuestro conocimiento científico. La verdadera belleza del milagro de la concepción, como Dr. Susan Highsmith lo demuestra en este libro, le da a los niños y adultos el entendimiento que un “Nacimiento Lleno de Amor” es lo que nuestras almas están buscando.”

“El Primer Cuento de Hadas Libro 1: La Aventura Comienza por Susan Highsmith combina una belleza elegante con palabras mágicas que nos inspiran e informan del misterio y la realidad de la concepción. Esta hermosa obra de arte de Mark Sean Wilson añade una aura transcendente a cada pagina. Las formas y colores de sus ilustraciones junto con el texto enriquecido de Susan nos traen la maravilla del natural, pero milagroso, viaje antiguo que cada uno de nosotros toma.”

"Lake Barrow, Florida is a small, central Florida farming community which prides itself on loving three things: faith, family, and the mighty Spartans of Sims County High. The tiny Bible-belt town is also home to a long-standing feud between two of its most prominent families, the Gills and the Danforths.
Jayce Leonard is a hometown football hero from Lake Barrow who is all too familiar with the Gill-Danforth controversy. After achieving success as a college quarterback at a small university, Jayce is called home in 2003 to coach at his alma mater at the age of twenty-four, making him the youngest high school head coach in the state of Florida. However, he soon finds himself squarely in the middle of his hometown’s checkered history again as he seeks to start a family and successfully lead his beloved Spartans on the gridiron. Alongside him is his college teammate and best friend, Soul Rasheed. "Coach Soul," as he is known to the team, is a Muslim and former favorite receiving target of Jayce's whose enthusiasm and charisma quickly endear him to the players. However, Soul's presence in Lake Barrow - along with his faith - soon generates fresh strife in the midst of the ongoing discord that has plagued Jayce’s small town for years.
Soul Sprints is a football tale of love, friendship, tolerance, and the ties of family and community that bind, even in the unceasing presence of bitterness and prejudice in post-9/11 America."
