FULL MOON RISING, BY T.M. BECKER
A father’s neglect. A brother’s betrayal...answers. That’s all Arabella ever wanted. Answers about how to vanquish the recurring nightmares that plague her, or where her mother came from and why she disappeared so many years ago.
To 15-year-old Arabella, the answers must lie in the books her mother left behind when she vanished. But the books are written in an ancient language shrouded in mystery—the language of magic. And in the conquered land of Atruria, magic is forbidden.
Instead of answers, the books offer only more questions—and a death sentence when her brother discovers her secret. Arabella is resigned to her fate, until the lock on her cell door blasts open one night. For though magic has been forbidden in Atruria, it has not been forgotten.
