Tales are often told of heroes who fulfill ancient prophecies. Alara’s Call is the tale of a woman
who gives new ones.
Alara sees visions of other’s futures, but never her own.
A young clergywoman with a fiery passion for her Telshan faith, she has been assigned to a
mission abroad but longs to lead a congregation in her homeland. Her father, the prime
minister, jeopardizes her dream and her safety when he coerces her into what he calls a
But it’s a ruse.
The trip is meant to end with her marriage to the crown prince of a foreign nation, where
members of Alara’s faith are persecuted and women oppressed. All for a trade agreement
her father is desperate to enact.
But her mentor intervenes and takes Alara to Dorrel, the suitor she left behind. They
believe they are safe, but foreign soldiers are under orders to bring Alara to the king’s
palace…by any means necessary.
