Yvette M. Calleiro is a heavily addicted reader of both young adult and adult novels. She spends most of her time psuedo-living in paranormal worlds with her fictional friends (and boyfriends). She’s also been known to ride the stationary bike at her gym for hours while reading anything from paranormal to fantasy to suspenseful thrillers.
When she’s living amongst real people, Yvette M. Calleiro is a middle school Reading and Language Arts teacher. She’s been sharing her love of literature with her students for over twenty years. Besides writing about the various characters that whisper (and sometimes scream) in her head, she enjoys traveling, watching movies, spending quality time with family and friends, and enjoying the beauty of the ocean.
Yvette lives in Miami, Florida, with her beautiful son who allows her to enjoy children’s literature all over again. She also shares her space with an assortment of crazy saltwater animals in her 300-gallon tank.
ABOUT THE STORY
Sofia has lost everything that was important to her: her mother, her boyfriend, and her best friend. Even the belief that humans are the only beings in the world has been stripped away, but she has no time to dwell on her losses because she’s been transported to a new world to become the savior of the Diasodz. Sofia trusted Ar’ch and Angel to be there for her and to guide and protect her, but only Angel has held true to his word. Ar’ch has abandoned her, leaving her to feel tricked and betrayed.
Ar’ch brought Sofia home, fulfilling his mission to bring their savior safely to their world, but it didn’t come without a cost. Rafe, Sofia’s boyfriend, was killed, and Ar’ch believes Sofia blames him for it. Ar’ch’s sole focus becomes doing what is best for Sofia, and in his mind, that does not include him.
As Sofia deals with Ar’ch’s absence, she throws herself into learning about the Diasodz’s history. She grows stronger both emotionally and physically, and begins to accept her role in their world, but not everyone is convinced that she is the one whom the prophecy states will save them.
Beliefs will be challenged. Secrets will be revealed. Relationships will be shattered. And in the aftermath, evil will see its opportunity and strike. Will Sofia be able to handle it all? Or will the savior of the Diasodz lose her will to continue?
I am loving this series so far. This is the second book in the Chronicles of Diasodz series, which is young adult fantasy. In the first book, The One Discovered, we are introduced to Sofia and her ordinary life until Angel and Ar’ch find her and turn that life upside down. She learns she is from a different world and that she is the saver of that world. Book 2 begins where she enters this unknown world where more secrets are revealed, on that is extremely heartbreaking. However, I believe there are more truths yet to come to light that will change the heartbreak. Truths that not even those closest to her are aware of yet.
I can’t say enough great things about this book. The characters are wonderfully drawn and well-written. The plot is stimulating and intriguing. I can’t wait to read the next book and wanted to jump right in to it.
If you enjoy a great young adult fantasy, you will love this series. Highly recommended with 5 stars
