Here's My #35th Teaser Tuesday From Orenda!

Orenda Orenda 
Ruth Silver
Published: 2014
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

A sword wielding girl, an eternal suit and an alternate universe.

Lil has a gift, one she never thought possible as she finds herself awake after a strange dream with the tell-tale sign that what she dreamt was in fact real. The dreamscape, was more than just a premonition it happened. She’d been momentarily tossed into another dimension. Where most would consider her crazy, not her best friend Bray. In another reality, one similar and yet slightly different Willow has been kidnapped by the sorceress turned demon, Eilith. Rawlie, Willow’s friend and companion crosses to our universe for help and brings Lil into his world. Filled with frightening creatures and magical elements, Lil demands to go home, until she discovers Bray has been taken by Eilith as well. Unable to watch her best friend die, she joins forces with Rawlie, Jamie and the others to hunt down Eilith and rescue those they care about.

Her reflection was different. Lil's pale skin had a distinctive creamy glow and her eyes had brightened to a blue of the ocean. Her usual long brown hair had transfixed with streaks of blonde highlights. Glancing down at the tips of her fingernails only now had she noticed the midnight blue color and yellow bolts of lightning carefully painted on to them. 
"What the hell!"

"What power?" Lil asked pausing as she reached around with the sword sliding her hands into the small space and practiced again through the air.

"Not being of this world, it makes you stronger," Arianna explained. "If Eilith has any inkling she'll want you dead. Bray too."
