Have you ever wanted
to forget? Nariella Woodlinn has. Many times. Especially when her already
frustrating life gets turned upside down by a mysterious boy who randomly shows
up in her small town and she can’t seem to understand anything about him,
despite how much she tries.
Nari hates everything
about her life except for her best friend Rydan, but now that they’ve been
separated during their senior year of high school, she has to learn to make new
friends without him. When strange unexplainable phenomenons start becoming an
every day part of her life, Nari struggles to come to grips with reality. And
responsibilities. Duties. It is her obligation to fulfill all that is asked of
her by their King. But when a glimmer of hope is introduced to her by a
prisoner she tends to and it means life or death for her and her people, she
does all that she can to turn that hope into reality and finally end the
vicious war that has been ensuing since she was born. Even if that means
keeping it secret from her King. Even if it means carrying out the biggest
betrayal against the King ever seen during her time.
has hope. She will fulfill her duty. She will not let her people down.
About the Author:
Ardisone is a collaboration between two sisters who were born and raised
outside of Chicago, Illinois. They combined their creative forces to write the
first book in their series, called Sweet Oblivion. Though the name Bailey Ardisone
applies to both of them, for the sake of answering questions they will each
take on one of the names to make things easier.
The older sister of the two in Bailey Ardisone, has always
loved getting lost in books, movies, music, and art. Fantasy is her favorite
genre. She gets her love of words from their grandmother who together used to
write poems, short stories and even greeting cards. Her biggest goal would be
to travel and explore the world. She loves going to the beach, enjoys football sundays,
and spending time with friends and family.
The younger sister of the two in Bailey Ardisone, has always
held a strong love for anything art related. Whether it be drawing, music, or
constantly day-dreaming, her mind never stops imagining wonderful stories and
possibilities. She finally got to put some of those ideas to use with her new
found love of writing novels. Some other things she is forever obsessed with
are Japanese Anime and Manga, animals, traveling, her home city of Chicago and
anything in miniature form. One thing she can never get enough of is
sleeping/taking naps and sour skittles.
