Patrick and his brother, Jared, had the perfect evil plan. Patrick was to marry Alison, kill her, and then play the grieving husband while he waits to inherit her money. That would set the brothers up for good. The newlyweds go off to New Mexico for their honeymoon. Unfortunately for the brothers, things did not go as planned. While seeking the thrill of adventure, Patrick left his bride in bed, tracked down a local guide, and insisted he takes the forbidden path to the hidden pool in the desert. That is how Patrick ended up a captive of Amara - an odd looking girl whose sole purpose was to rid the world of those with evil hearts. Meanwhile, poor Alison, unaware of the brothers' evil intentions, innocently mourns her husband's disappearance. Three days after Patrick disappeared, Jared followed his trail in a desperate attempt to find him. But just like Patrick, Jared found himself trapped in Amara's world. Will the brothers ever find their way home or will they be trapped forever ?

Amara by Diane Stayner is a fiction fantasy tale about a lonely girl in the desert, on a mission to rid the world of evil, and her captives. The story is placed in a unique setting, just perfect for an exciting fiction fantasy tale blended with horror. The description of Amara and her mythical world in the desert is unique and fits into the whole plot perfectly. The sinister horrors and illusions that her captives are subjected to add more excitement to the story and mix well into the setting. With the combination of the exciting plot, the unique setting, and characters, Amara makes for a good book for someone looking for a pithy and exciting horror read.
