Praise for :
Book One of The Souls of Aredyrah Series


“The Fire and the Light is a spellbinder, a book to treasure, a novel of rare

power and originality, brimming with, yes, fire and light. Its fascinating multi-
layered plot examines, in mythological terms, a societal system webbed in
isolationism and superstition. Sensitive and richly textured, the lives of its
vividly-realized characters achieve compelling dimension as they struggle to
break free of the prejudices and lies that have distorted their existence…Here’s a
classic in the making.”

~William F. Nolan, award-winning author of the series

“The Fire and the Light is a fast-paced and intriguing story that wears its

message of tolerance and compassion lightly.”
~Kate Constable, author of the series

“…fast-paced, interesting, and fun for readers of all ages.”
~Leslie Halpern, author of

“A poignant epic fable, highly recommended for all ages.”
~Midwest Book Review

“Akers creates a wonderfully developed world that you are swept into, with

a plot that immediately demands your attention. Her characters are richly
developed, their personalities and emotions clearly depicted… [the dialogue]
makes you believe in the characters and leaves the impression that you are right
in the story with them…This is a must read for fantasy lovers of all ages.”

~Gregg J. Haugland, Allbook Reviews

“The Fire and the Light is a beguiling novel, with compelling characters

and a plot that will keep you turning the pages to the end and then asking for
more.”
