To Stand Beside Her

I was very pleased with the storyline in To Stand Beside Her. I think it was very original and creative. The author, B. Kristin McMichael led her readers down unexpected paths which led Leila to make hard decisions. I enjoyed her character development as well as the influence that Nalick, Kay, and others made on her life. It was thought provoking to consider someone with a certain lifestyle choice to have to deal with the same kinds of circumstances that any of us may face – though in a supernatural/mystical sense. There is much more to Leila than she puts on. To be so young, she really has a compelling story. To Stand Beside Her was a strong body of work and it definitely stands out as a star in the teen and young adult fantasy genre.
