About the author:
Kim ten Tusscher achieved national renown in the Netherlands for her Lilith trilogy, about a young woman whose unique power comes to be the very center of a gruesome war. Hydraga (2008) is her debut novel. The key differentiator of Kim's books is their 'grey-scale' characters: no plain 'good' or 'bad'. It is left to the reader to assess the various personalities. This adds an element of depth and emotion to the already thrilling, quickly paced story.
Kim ten Tusscher
J. Kevin Thomas
The young and rebellious Lumea tries to escape the restrictions imposed on her by her homeland by accepting an invitation to visit the legendary city of Hydrhaga. The rigid Elf Elion and his young friend Siard aspire to liberate their race from the slavery to which mankind condemned them, due to sins committed in the past. The quests of these three youngsters intertwine and together they set out to search the mysterious city of Hydrhaga, where dreams become reality.
However - Hydrhaga doesn't turn out to be the paradise that was promised to them. It is a tool, the dream of a spirit who aims to accomplish his - in itself noble - goal at the expense of thousands of lives. As they flee from certain death, Lumea and her two companions find themselves compelled to adopt a position in the conflict that is about to erupt.
Hydrhaga is a story about conflicting points of view friendship and the price of hatred. It is also the story of Lumea who is faced with many moral dilemmas. Her choices enable her to ultimately find her place in the world. But at what price?
