“The Power from Without wasn’t a surrender but a domination. The emptiness created as she bled the life from the sailor only magnified the desire to pull even more life to her to fill it, an unending addiction. Using it made her crave more power. The more power she poured out through the amulet, the more she wanted. The need became an obsession, unstoppable.”
Mirana Pinal has nowhere to hide. After attempting to deny her true identity, she has been revealed as a legendary Trine—a rare individual who possesses three powers from the divine Aspects Above. Most people blessed with an Aspect would be a Defender, a Healer, or a Seer, but Mirana is all three, and her first experience harnessing these powers almost killed her.
But, with her title comes the immense responsibility to protect her home of Kinderra, a land ravaged by a ceaseless conflict with the Ken’nar. In C.K. Donnelly’s highly anticipated second book in The Kinderra Saga, TRINE FALLACY (Kibbe Creative Media LLC, August 31, 2021), Mirana and her mentor journey across the lands of Kinderra to find the answers they seek to save her beloved Kinderra and its people.
Through haunted desert canyons, harrowing oceanic trips, and hostile cities, Mirana finds that there is much about the history of Kinderra she does not know. And much, in fact, that she should not trust. Meanwhile, her parents and the other Aspected who defend Kinderra find themselves amidst hopeless battles and hollow victories. The Ken’nar forces that attack relentlessly are growing stronger, and the Kinderrans cannot seem to overcome them.
“‘Mirana, there are many things we wish were not true, but to ignore them is a fallacy leading to self-destruction.’ His voice had dropped to a whisper. ‘Accounts of such a skill exist in ancient, long-forbidden texts.’
She raised an eyebrow. ‘If they are forbidden, how do you know about it?’
He threw another twig into the fire. ‘No knowledge is truly forbidden. It is only how one uses such knowledge that makes it damning.’”
TRINE FALLACY brilliantly begins to answer the questions left at the end of Trine Rising, weaving an incredibly rich and complex tapestry. Set in an immersive world all its own, TRINE FALLACY is a book that has both flashes of exhilarating hope and moments of bleak reality. Both are palpable through the lens of the rich and compelling characters who tell them. At its heart, TRINE FALLACY is a gripping exploration of the area that exists between the light and the dark and how one finds their own truth within it.
