The Hierophants Bridge was written by KJ Bagley and published by Amazon Digital Services in 2014. You may purchase it at Amazon.com/Kindle. Visit the author on Facebook.

 

 The first book in the Kate Jordan series finds our young heroine thrust into a reality where the difficult choices are often made by the ones that feel the least qualified to make them. Trying to save the lives of those she thought lost and those she has never even met, Kate goes on a daunting trek into the unknown. The young woman that emerges from the rubble is forever changed from the child she once was.

The story starts off with Kate Jordan dreaming of a beautiful gray crystal lake, but just as she is ready to step closer to her dream place her high school track coach wakes her up from her day dream and impatiently prods her to the starting blocks.  But as Kate starts her run the lake is still etched in her mind and she bumps into a class mate on the track and tumbles to the ground. Kate is made fun of and laughed at. As a target of bullies, Kate struggles along and is supported by a few close friends, including her friend Derek, and of course her dad. Derek meets up with a confused and frustrated Kate and invites her along on a walk where she opens up about her day. Derek informs her that she has a lot more friends than she thinks and ushers her to a place that will change her life forever. Kate learns that her life was not what it seemed and soon she is in a world totally different than she grew up in.  A world of fantasy opens up to her, filled with amazing creatures and places that are very real. Kate now has incredible powers and now along with her many friends, she must find a way to defeat the evil in this new world and to achieve her goal of finding and saving her mother, who she thought had died when she was nine.

The author, KJ Bagley, creates characters and places that are likable and fun to imagine. The story has a good sense of conflict all the way through and the anticipation moves the reader along. There were a few places in the book however when I lost the flow of the story while trying to imagine the place, the plot and the intentions of the character(s) at the same time. Given all of this, the writing and storytelling ability of the author is good and will only improve as she continues with her writing career.

I give
The Hierophants Bridge 4 stars.
