LACHELLE REED, Author of When Angels Fall….
I absolutely loved the story and its’ compelling trailer. I loved how it began and ended. The mystery woman certainly evokes a great deal of curiosity and then there is the Silleri stone… I really want to know more about that. It has the fantasy mystery about it. I showed it to my son and he loved it as well. The background music in the trailer is just awesome and adds to the mysterious effect. Congratulations.

“Come, come Si-be-ria. Yes, that’s right, come to me now!”
Her resounding evil laughter increases with the anticipation of doom lurking in the murky night. Suddenly, her phantomlike image is swallowed by the dusk. Just when I am about to breathe a sigh of relief, her face reappears! Only this time, her limpid brown eyes begin to blink rapidly; morphing into a grayish set of eyes in distress, with the different, yet familiar, face of Naiya, you know her by now… that’s right, my older sister! How could this be, thinking out loud? But then again, stranger things have been known to happen in my village. Before I could figure out if it was really my sister’s face, the alarming tick-tock sound began yet again, the disconcerting image of Naiya abruptly disappearing. I am now left in the pitch black!
Wisdom Nugget from Siberia Tonka:
“A person who sows love reaps a harvest of good friends and family. It doesn’t really matter where we come from; we all have something of sentimental value. And this crazy chain of events has led me to my destiny….it has led me to fight for the people I love” ~Siberia
