Author: Wendy Altshuler (Author), Eva Cincotta (Illustrator)
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
A growing evil will use magic to steal the hearts of children. Can they be saved? From Award Winning Author Wendy Altshuler comes Book IV in the Evergreen Series:
When an amnesiac girl who suspects her heart is missing utters a prayer, she is met by a mysterious angelic stranger from her forgotten past. Together they embark on a journey to recover her removed heart, but enter into battle with an Evil Voice on a rampage to remove the hearts of an entire generation of children - and replace them with stones. From a review of the series: "...a fantasy novel meant for young adults but appealing to readers and fantasy fans of all ages, following the adventures of a young boy, his close friend, and the bond he shares with a tree come to life...and of the mysterious Nadia, who begins searching for her own heart and memory yet finds her purpose in rescuing the hearts of others. An emotionally moving, uplifting, and wholesome fable." -Midwest Book Review
The fourth part of this amazing series is by far the darkest chapter in the tale. The reader gets the feeling that the Voice is Voldemort and just can't be beaten. Nadia and Georgeonus go on another incredible adventure and this book is packed with suspense, excitement and moments of terror.
Another excellent stand alone that also plays a key role in carrying the story forward. A solid, darkly tinged story.
