Fair O'Nelli is a normal girl, except for one small fact: She has spent the last nine years of her life living in a cellar with her loyal dog, studying the Scrolls of Truth by mysterious fingerlight, educated by her mother in the dark of night to avoid being discovered. She knows that her father and brother are missing, or dead.
Fair is set free on the day she comes of age, when it's safe for her to be seen. Little does she know the gods will soon call her to bring a miracle to Cloven Grave. In the company of three guardians, she encounters dangers and adventures as she follows the grassy path to find a stranger named Selador at an unknown place called Selador's Gate. Along the way, Fair discovers a deep, dark secret the parents of Cloven Grave know nothing about. More importantly, she uncovers the secret to a mysterious legend that leaves you quenched, yet thirsting for more.
Heart-wrenchingly suspenseful and achingly beautiful, Secret Speakers and the Search for Selador’s Gate is an astounding tale of triumph that pulls you around dark corners, drags you down to the depths of the earth and lifts you up to the soaring realms of Rall Kindaria, leaving your spirit breathless with the possibility that we are never, ever alone. Ever.
In a clever re-telling of the classic tale of The Wizard of Oz, Secret Speakers and the Search for Selador's Gate comes out just in time to celebrate the movie's 70th anniversary.
