Item description for Auralia's Colors (The Auralia Thread) by Jeffrey Overstreet...

Marked by an elegant and introspective style of adventure storytelling, "Auralias Colors" combines classic fantasy with a suspenseful plot, adrenaline-rush action, and unpredictable characters, creating an enchanting new series promising rich parables about freedom and responsibility.

Publishers Description
When thieves find an abandoned child lying in a monster's footprint, they have no idea that their wilderness discovery will change the course of history.
Cloaked in mystery, Auralia grows up among criminals outside the walls of House Abascar, where vicious beastmen lurk in shadow. There, she discovers an unsettling-and forbidden-talent for crafting colors that enchant all who behold them, including Abascar's hard-hearted king, an exiled wizard, and a prince who keeps dangerous secrets.
Auralia's gift opens doors from the palace to the dungeons, setting the stage for violent and miraculous change in the great houses of the Expanse.
"Auralia's Colors" weaves literary fantasy together with poetic prose, a suspenseful plot, adrenaline-rush action, and unpredictable characters sure to enthrall ambitious imaginations.

From Publishers Weekly
Film critic and author Overstreet (Through a Screen Darkly ) offers a powerful myth for his first foray into fiction. The kingdom of Abascar is cloaked in gloom, sentenced to an ongoing "wintering" by a jealous queen, in which colors have been done away with and are only allowed in the royal court. But young Auralia, found as a baby by the river and raised by outcasts, has a talent for finding colors everywhere and bringing them to life in a way no one has ever seen before. The fate of the kingdom rests on what Auralia chooses to do and how the king responds. Overstreet creates a world with not only its own geography but its own vocabulary-it is haunted by beastmen, home to cloudgrasper trees, vawns (something like dinosaurs) and twister fish. There are Christian bones to the story-particularly in the mystery of the beast called the Keeper, who is "always moving about, but he likes to hide just to see who'll come seeking"-which may be too obvious to some and not at all clear to others. Overstreet's writing is precise and beautiful, and the story is masterfully told. Readers will be hungry for the next installment.(Sept.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
