FACES IN THE WATER
Faces in the Water by Sarah Mahfoudh
A magical fantasy novel for young adults.
Fourteen-year-old Eshna has always known she is different – she can hold light in her hand and form pillars out of water – but it is not until her father is killed in a brutal mugging that she really begins to discover who she is and what she is capable of.
All alone in the world without anyone to turn to, and scared of what the authorities will do when they find out, Eshna escapes from the hospital where she is being treated and runs to a beach, miles from town...which until night falls appears deserted. It’s then that she hears the voices in the darkness and sees the eerie shapes in the water that will change her destiny forever.
When morning dawns, Eshna is dragged into a new world, full of magic and intrigue; a world that needs saving. But is Eshna really the one they have been waiting for, and can she help?
