From the back: In The Seventh Heart, first-time novelist Marina Fitch weaves a brilliant contemporary fantasy that bridges the gap between what is real and what is believed, between human nature and mother nature. Inventive, exciting, and mysterious, this a novel that will make you believe in the anger of the Earth.
Gillian's friend and roommate Melanie has disappered following a devasting earthquake. Mysterious figures are hunting her for unknown reasons, and Gillian realizes that Melanie is somehow connected to both the earthquake and the hunters. Gillian soon discovers that she is the key to averting a larger catastrophe, but it requires sacrifice. Excellent contemporary fantasy, with an emphasis on elemental magic. This will appeal to those who enjoy Kim Wilkins, Mercedes Lackey, and P.C. Cast.
This book was a delightfully suprising read from an author I have never heard of. It really kept me interested throughout the whole book!
