A classic fantasy quest with a contemporary twist . . .
Stone Voice Rising
by C. Lee Tocci
Lilibit can hear what the stones are whispering.
She is meant to be the earth’s new Stone Voice who will ultimately connect the planet with the universe. Her protector, a stone warrior, attempts to take her to the place called Kiva to fulfill her destiny—but they are intercepted by Syxx, an evil entity devoted to finding the source of Lilibit’s power. Lilibit, damaged and near death, ends up at a group home for troubled, unwanted children. But she recovers and journeys with them to Kiva, giving them the stones that allow then to embrace their own powers, fight Syxx’s minions, and save the earth.
This gripping story is a true fantasy adventure by an exciting new voice in children’s literature, C. Lee Tocci. In the vein of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, Lilibit’s magical and dangerous world will sweep readers away.
Stone Voice Rising (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; April 2009) is a thrilling tale that will capture readers’ hearts and make them wonder about their hidden strengths waiting to be discovered.
