Description

Sevara's orphanage teaches wife etiquette instead of arithmetic, domestic duties instead of grammar, and stick fighting instead of phys ed. There's a swimming pool (but no water) and a doctor (who sells the unwanted girls to slave traders). All girls must become servant-wives, or be kicked out onto the streets with nothing. Sevara refuses to marry, and doesn't last long on the outside. Luckily, someone has been watching her. Given incredible powers, Sevara must choose between protecting the city, and saving the only man she's ever loved. Dawn of Hope is a one hundred thousand word young adult novel (263 pages) that will appeal to readers of all ages, and is suitable for children over the age of thirteen. This special edition softback features a luxurious matte wraparound cover by artists Donny Hadiwijaja and Anang Setyawan. At the end of the book, you'll find twelve pages of art from the Sevara graphic novel, illustrated by Andre Siregar.show more
