In The Tale of Two by Micah Inouye, two little kids brought together by misfortune and fate grew up to be best friends. Living across the street from each other, Lexi and Darren grow up to be as close as siblings. Unbeknownst to them, however, they had much more in common than their friendship. Growing up, the two were obsessed with magic and often created imaginary tales of faraway magical lands. What they thought were mere workings of their childhood imaginations turned out to be real worlds after the two teenagers received their powers and discovered long lost memories and their true identities. With their memories came their purpose - to search for their biological parents who were banished to the unknown worlds of this universe. Their search will take them to the land of misfits and outcasts, to the land of the rich and the royals, to the land of soldiers and warriors, to the land of the magicians, to the land of the great wizards, and finally to the land of the banished and the exiled.
The Tale of Two by Micah Inouye is an amazing YA fantasy adventure that will have you glued to the pages while you follow the two friends as they leave behind the only home they knew and set out on an adventure of a lifetime, with all the thrills and the challenges that they will encounter.
