Clara (Stories of Lorst Book 1) by Suzanna J. Linton


As a slave, Clara's life extends no further than the castle kitchens and their garden. However, she carries within herself a precious gift: the ability to see the future.

When a vision prompts her to prevent a murder, Clara is shoved not only into the intrigues of the nobility but also into a civil war. As events unfold, she begins to unearth chilling secrets about the war and her supposed friends.

Driven to learn the truth, Clara embarks on a journey that takes her from her beloved mountains to the very Capital itself, Bertrand. There, she is confronted by an evil as old as the mountains–and it's using her anger and prejudices against her. If she is not careful, not only will the entire nation be lost, but Clara's own soul as well.

Book one in the Stories of Lorst series, Clara, was an exciting journey that I am looking forward to continuing. I greatly enjoyed Suzanna J. Lintons writing style, from the fantastic world built to the depth she gave her characters. I would highly recommend this book to fantasy fans. — Amanda Lavoie
