A hidden identity, perilous premonitions and a centuries-old war collide in Trine Rising: The Kinderra Saga Book 1 (self-published, $23.95), the debut novel of Fountain Hills journalist C.K. Donnelly. In this YA fantasy, 16-year-old Mirana Pinal grapples with her possession of all three Aspects, or magical powers – an extreme anomaly in her land of Kinderra, where people are blessed with one Aspect, if any. Will she be able to harness them to help her people? Or will they lead to the destruction of everything she holds dear? Fans of epic fantasy will relish every moment of the ride in Donnelly’s immersive world.
