Debut author Cara L. Bingham just released her first book Child of Nature this month. It's a magical book with main character Mira Storm Weather about to have her life changed forever.
Mira lives with her parents in the woods and doesn't really fit in with her peers. However, when Mira finds out she's really a witch, the puzzle of her life starts to make sense.
At a Halloween party, which Mira's so-called friends reluctantly invite her to, Mira performs a spell without knowing that she's done so - as she doesn't even know she's a witch! The recipient of the spell, a wizard, covers for her and says that he has a rare disease.
In the witchkind world, coming of age is supposed to happen at sixteen, but Mira's powers start to exert themselves two whole years earlier and it is an indication that she will be quite a powerful witch. When she goes to the Test of the Goblets to test her witch powers, she choose the wrong goblet twice, but with her third attempt the goblet levitates towards her and she is chosen as the next joint leader of the Yellow Coven.
The imagination that this author gives her characters is one of a kind. She uses great descriptors to set the scene for the life-changing events in Mira's life. Her language is flowing and creates soft pictures in the reader's mind.
I'm interested to see what she has in store for Mira next.
