Scars are often hidden as best forgotten reminders of the past. They cover passages of pain until the faded lines become pushed back into a dark corner of a your world where things seem safer behind a closed door.
Yet sometimes a closed door can be opened by fate's hand.
Looking for Dei was an intriguing urban fantasy that delves into the borders of high fantasy. There was a great build up towards establishing this world's belief system and how it tied into the creation of the character's backbones to fulfill ancient prophecies. This read is definitely for those who enjoyed Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.

Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never liked secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift.
A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right. The decision sets her on a path of danger, discovery, and a search for the divine. In the process, she learns the truth about herself and uncovers the biggest secret of all: the power of broken people.
David A. Willson has worked as a restauranteur, peace officer, and now, author. Taught by his mother to read at a young age, he spent his childhood exploring magic, spaceships, and other dimensions. In his writing, he strives to bring those worlds to his readers.
Much of his material is inspired by the "Great Land" of Alaska, which he has called home for over 30 years. He lives there with his wife, five children, and 2 dogs. He is passionate about technology, faith, and fiction--not necessarily in that order.
Looking for Dei is Willson's debut novel, set in a land where many more adventures will take place. Stay up to date with his ongoing efforts through the Looking for Dei Facebook page or visiting the website at davidawillson.com.
