Have you ever had a dream you couldn't shake? It got under you skin and followed you through the rest of your day. Maybe it returned the next night, or even years later. That's the story of my writing career.

Literature has always been an important part of my life, whether as a reader or a writer. I particularly love clean young adult stories with at least a touch (or more) of magic and romance, which also happens to be what I write.

In addition to the books already published, I'm working on revising Antarctic Discovery, the modern uncovering of the Tower of Babel -- and the man who survived. I'm also revising my original novel, Call Her Forth, a tandem dream romance.

Between writing and chasing kids, I enjoy doing all things book. You can find out more at: www.AngeLeya.com

Lost is book 2 in Angel Leya's Running Toward Illumia series. Astrea is in big trouble. She has taken Windmane,  the unicorn she had tracked and hunted, from her tribe that lived banished within the Mist. The Banned have warned her never to return, certain that her actions have condemned them to starve. She had fled as quickly as she could, unaware that a trap lay in  wait. She had heard tales of ogres in the Mist, but thought their eating habits were but a tale to scare children into submission. How wrong she had been. Bound  and captured, her only hope lay in Gander, a somewhat shifty elf, but his interest seemed only to be in saving the unicorn. He said this beast was his charge, and for the moment they all had the same goal; escaping the Mist and reaching Illumia. A hidden secret is revealed, and there is more at stake than reaching Illumia. Once she arrives there is a destiny awaiting; that is, if she arrives at all.
 
Lost: Running Toward Illumia 2 is charming with a subtle urgency that drives the reader onwards through the short tale. Having read Banned, book 1 in the series, I can confirm that this book picks up exactly where the last one left off, and  despite being a short read there is  no lack of danger, suspense, or questions as  Astrea continues  on her destined path. Lost: Running Toward Illumia 2 is an enjoyable short tale which makes for a perfect quick read and paves the way for the next book.
