Two Moons of Sera
By Pavarti K Tyler
In a world where water and earth teem with life, Serafay is an anomaly. The result of genetic experiments on her mother's water-borne line Serafay will have to face the very people responsible to discover who she really is. But is she the only one?
Serafay is sixteen years of age. She has been living in a secluded cove with her mother who is a Sualwet, a being of the sea. Sera is half Saulwet and half Erlander, a being of the earth (like a human). Her mother had been captured by the Erlanders and experimented on. She was able to escape, but only to later have a child of both worlds. Sera is considered an outsider to both races so she must stay in exile, however one day while on the beach of her cove, a mysterious man snatches some papers she is drying, and runs off. As she chases him down, she wonders who he is. Sera’s mother has taught her to distrust all Erlanders, and although Sera is cautious about strangers, she is determined to find out who the stranger is. And so her adventure begins.
I loved getting aquainted with Sera and her mysterious stranger. I enjoyed learning about Sera and her mother’s background, as well as how Sera has adapted to living in both worlds, both the land and the sea. Her intelligence and keen understanding of things that she has never been taught ads a magical quality to her character. I love how Sera is strong-willed, independent and yet vulnerable at the same time. Just when she begins to realize that she is lonely in spite of having her mother with her, a new mysterious person arrives in her life.
As for her new friend, Tor (Torkek), I love how he is an enigma. He seems both strong and vulnerable, and well as determined to learn all he can, while still remaining mysterious I wonder what adventures will come their way, and I want to learn more about Tor and where he comes from.
This is part one of a Serial Novel, which means that it is told in several short stories rather than a single long novel. . I am anxious for the next volume in this serial novel, due to come out early in 2012. I can’t wait to see what happens next to both Sera and Tor. Definitely a book worth reading, and an author worth following!
“How did I get here? The point of living was insignificant. I was just sixteen, my birthday had passed without comment or celebration. My entire existence had been spent in hiding. A war raged around me, while I hid safely in my utopian cove. I never did anything wrong, there was nothing to do. A lifetime of nothing spanned behind me and stretched endlessly in front of me. Stories from books and melodisks told of adventures and loves, stories I had never forgotten. Each one engraved in my soul like a promise.
Until I met Tor. Torkek.
Until he spoke to me, sat with me, yelled at me, frightened me.
Each movement he made fed my hunger for experience. Each emotion he inspired within me made him more and more vital. I knew I couldn't have him. I couldn't be the princess from the fairytales who walked hand in hand with the man who saved her from the monsters. The stories were all the same. The princess thanked her savior with a kiss so painfully true, it sealed their love forever. Instead, I would have to say goodbye and he would leave. I would ache for him to return and maybe one day he would, but never for long. The reality of my existence excluded his presence. I was an abomination, a mutant, a hybrid never meant to exist. What would he think when he found out the truth?”
