War is brewing and all is not well on the Great Continent. Two young people, from the far reaches of the continent, must find each other and find their own true meaning of life. In the process, they must follow blind faith and a prophet, Aivan, a god no one else believes still exists. Rune, from Kansanai in the north, and Rolf from Etalentin in the south are challenged by conflicting beliefs and the one god, Aivan, also known as the One Truth, who speaks out against everything the two young people once believed to be true. In between, there are evil forces at play, royals who will stop at nothing to secure their position of power, and the two young people, now on a quest for the one truth, must face danger and possible death as their quest intensifies.
Kayla E. Green’s young adult novel, Aivan: The One Truth, is the first book in the Chronicles of the One Truth series. Told from multiple points of view, primarily the two main characters, Rune and Rolf, the plot evolves from the two extremities of the continent until the two characters discover each other and continue their quest together. The plot is well developed with believable characters and beautifully described narrative passages. Like the compelling stories of C.S. Lewis’s Narnia, paralleling the stories of faith in the New Testament, this story will appeal to young readers, challenging them to confront their own quest in a search for self-identity and faith. Powerful story – I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
