TEEN: Dark Goddess - Sarwat Chadda

Release Date: 01/07/10


BILLI SANGREAL is a Knight Templar and has thrown herself utterly into their brutal regime, shutting herself off from everyone and everything. But when Billi finds herself at the heart of a savage werewolf attack, she knows their target - a young girl - must be rescued at all costs. For this is no ordinary girl. Vasalisa is an avatar with an uncontrollable force within - and it's not just the werewolves who want her.The Dark Goddess wants to sacrifice Vasalisa and use her powers to unleash unimaginable catastrophes and devastation. Can Billi protect Vasalisa from the ancient goddess - and at the same time stop her from destroying the world?


OK, I didn’t start with book one and was interested by the premise. It’s well written, the author has a great outline but perhaps best of all, the principle character is one that really does make this title something special. She’s not only believable but she also stands out with realistic teenage traits and has her own personal struggles to overcome as well as resolving the quest to which she is now engaged.

Back this up with beautiful descriptiveness alongside top quality dialogue and you know that you’ve got something a little special. Definitely an author to watch and one that I’ll be watching for some time to come. Great stuff.
