Aloren: The Estralony Cycle #1 (Young Adult Fairy Tale Retelling)
Set in an engrossing, fully realized fantasy world, Aloren is a romantic, young adult retelling of the classic fairy tale The Wild Swans. Reyna Lauriad is a Gralde--her spirit grows from the ground in the form of a flower. She and her four brothers have been taught the risks associated with touching, even looking upon their birthflowers: strange maladies, potential madness. But when Reyna's brothers are bound by a deadly curse, she is forced to do the unthinkable: in order to break the curse she must pull her birthflowers from the ground.
