Fair to Hope
By Sam Reed ’00. North Loop Books, August 2016. Available on Amazon. Velma has lived two lives: her first as a foster kid, and her second as an unlikely recruit into a secret order that satisfied her need for retribution. Her fifteen-year-old self had given up on hope, but after three years with the Taram, she’d found her life’s purpose. That is, until she is surprisingly named Kachina, the fabled chosen empowered to fight the last battle for the fate of the world.
