Half angel, half mermaid, and raised as a landling, Stella Merriss never felt like she fit in. Now she and her friends must defend The Laws of the Universe from the armies of the fallen angel Lord Sylvain or see the realms of land, sea, and sky plunged into chaos.
Stella Merriss has never felt like she belonged anywhere—her family was always on the run. During a daring escape her parents suddenly disappear into stormy, shark-infested waters. Alone and unsure of her future, she learns the truth: that she’s actually half angel, half mermaid. Stella has no choice but to join an elite angel apprenticeship program where—despite having to hide her dual nature—she finally feels as though she has found a home.
But villainous forces are gathering to strike against Stella’s newfound home and attack the three Timekeepers who spin and weave the fateful Thread of Life. Evil Lord Sylvain and his army will stop at nothing to corrupt the Laws of the Universe and bend them toward his own vile agenda. A child of land, sea, and sky is the only obstacle standing in his way.
In this battle between good and evil, Stella and her friends must defend against the armies of Lord Sylvain or see the realms of land, sea, and sky plunged into chaos.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story, but just as important, the message! I am anticipating the next book in the series!
It is so refreshing to find a book that is fun, adventuresome in addition to quietly displaying the Secrets of the universe. I will gift this book to all my grandkids!
This was almost a perfect read. It had a masterfully written plot and story, well written characters and it is definitely a book written for 'young adults.'
The worldbuilding was phenomenal. So unique and so much fun to read about.
Inscribed on tablets and hidden away for none to see are the Laws of the Universe, protected by the angels of the Sky Realm.
The architect of the universe created them to be as definitive as the physical laws, such as gravity—unchangeable and constant.
These laws are one of the first things that new recruits study upon their acceptance into the prestigious angel apprenticeship program that Stella and her friends enroll into. Together, they must learn to use the laws to expand their consciousness and manifest their wings.
Our reality is a form of intelligent energy that is always in motion and vibrating with life. Depending on it’s rate of vibration, we may see it with our naked eye, like our hands, or it may be an unseen force, like a radio wave.
There is a perfect rhythm built into the natural order. What goes up must come down; the tide ebbs and flows; night follows day; summer follows spring. It is the heartbeat of the universe.
Energy is in a constant state of changing from one form into another as a way of expressing itself. Ice melts to water and water heats to steam. All new things come from change.
All things correspond with each other with perfect precision, even if we can not see it. Ideas such as bigger, smaller, better, worse, faster or slower only exist in our minds. All things are in harmony, agreement, and balance with each other.
Everything in the universe has an opposite. There would be no inside without an outside; no right without a left; no front without a back. This law is also the creative law, decreeing that a definite period of time must pass before a seed germinates, grows, and comes to fruition.
There exists a magnetic force which permeates every molecule in the universe. This forces attracts to it anything which is in harmony with it, and repels that which isn’t. Like attracts like.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Consequences come with every action or inaction and produce specific results. The choices people make are causes, whether conscious or unconscious, and they will produce corresponding outcomes, or effects.
