CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Embark on a magical adventure with a spirited street urchin and her group of adventuresome friends in "Stones of Power" (published by AuthorHouse), the new fantasy fiction for young adults by Mira Singer.
When Kit, a simple street urchin living on the dark, dangerous streets of 19th-century London, picks up a stone with a strange sign carved into it, she is flung headlong into an unbelievable world full of magic and secrets. There she meets myriad characters, including Lisha, a peg-legged 15-year-old ship captain with an uncanny ability to read people; Jasper, an orphaned son of a nobleman struggling to grow into the leader he is meant to be; and Emra, a blonde farm girl with the unusual ability to transform into a snake.
When danger threatens Kit and her newfound friends, they must set off on an adventure that will take them across the high seas on a quest across the globe. Their journey will be filled with many hardships. Betrayals, kidnappings, theft and storms plague them, and malicious villains seem to lurk around every corner, just out of sight.
In the midst of peril and obstacles, bravery, friendship and love are stirred to life among the group of friends. The fate of a world, which often treated them with indifference, may well rest in the hands of these young adults, who must go above and beyond the call of duty. Will they succeed? Find out in "Stones of Power."
"Stones of Power is a combination of adventure, fantasy, historical fiction, and romance," Singer writes. "It also includes deep friendships and characters and moral dilemmas. Although most readers haven't had the experience of being an orphaned street urchin in 19th-century London, they can identify with feelings of loneliness, disaster, responsibility and frustration at a seemingly hostile world."
Ideal for those who enjoy J.K. Rowling, Tamora Pierce and Eva Ibbotson, "Stones of Power" offers a compulsively readable story filled with relatable characters sure to keep readers of all ages glued to the last thrilling page.
Mira Singer has been crafting stories for as long as she can remember. "Stones of Power" is her first published book, and she plans to write more in the future.
