The Utopian society of Managrail has lost its young king, and Queen Raina must raise their twins, the impetuous Lila, and her sullen brother Simian alone. No one could know that one of Lila’s demands will change the lands forever. Armed with magic talismans the Light Bringers, they will face challenges beyond their imaginations.

A magic war is on the horizon, and all the tribes will unite for one last time to stand against the Sorceress Shantra from the White Realm. With Lila’s help Shantra hopes to break free from her frozen prison of one hundred years. Little does anyone realize that the Light Bringers hold their own secret plan.

5.0 out of 5 stars This writer is on a par with J.K Rowling, January 23, 2013

Mrs Tina Britt (Wales)

I could see this book as a fantasy film for children and adults alike, and it was a pleasure to review it. Aron Joice, I believe, has a skillful imagination, on a par with writers such as Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland) J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter).

Aron Joice worked in orphan relief in Eastern Europe, and spent many years in animal rescue and rehabilitation. Anyone interested in finding out more about Aron Joice can find her at

Author Interview with Christina Rowell

Today I’d like to introduce you to Christina Rowell YA fantasy author….

What made you decide to write YA fantasy?

My mother kept me and my brother amused on long journeys telling fantastical tales to us. There were no books involved, only the clouds that filled sky. Each cloud was a different character in her stories, some were fierce characters, and others were warm and friendly. Because my mind was stimulated from an early age with mental imagery, I love putting the descriptions of what I see down on paper. 

What do you consider the most difficult aspect of writing for a YA audience?

Trying to offer the reader something different from what’s already out there, I think is the most difficult thing about writing for a YA audience.

Does your work reflect the more mature side of YA readers?

My main character is 17 years old, but I believe that the novel itself will appeal to a wide range of YA readers, male, female, young and old.   The story reflects life in general.

How did you decide on your title “Salvation, No Kissing Required?”

The story itself is about rescuing the world from dark forces and the protagonist in return for enlisting in God’s army has the chance of being rewarded with his salvation. He faces various challenges, one of them being falling in love.

Could you give us a peek into your fantasy world and one of your favorite characters?

Satan is roaming Earth; he’s rallying his faithful and enlisting young recruits to spread misery and destruction.

 My favorite character is the protagonist, Dan Pierce. He’s compassionate, fun loving, and I’m in love with him.

Is there anything that you would like your readers to know about you that they may not already?

 I love researching the locations where my stories take place. Because I do want to add realism for the reader and personally I find different places and cultures fascinating. This is my debut novel and at present I’m working on the sequel to Salvation, No Kissing Required. The location is entirely different in the sequel, so a lot of research had to go into it before I could start writing.

At the end of the day what do you want your readers to take home with them?

I want the reader to share my fantasy world and enjoy their time with me.

The Rising (The Lost Children of Managrail)
As the book opens, a wilful and headstrong Lila drags her twin brother Simian, into yet another of her adventures. The young Prince and Princess of Managrail have lived a cosseted and protected lifestyle; and are not prepared for life outside Managrail. They get lost and the Queen, when they do not return; sends her champion Bramon to find them. The twins spend a fretful night in the forest stalked by the Fergay. Who hunt at night in packs and devour any living thing in sight.
The Fergay communicate telepathically to each other and are skilled and vicious opponents from which, few escape. The twins meet Cayda and Medack, who have lost all their family and friends and become allies to save Managrail from attack from the Fergay. Just when the four friends think their lives can start again, Lila is kidnapped. A dark spirit has attached itself to Lila and Shantra a dark force is planning to use her to get the thing she desires most. Which are the sacred magical stones of Managrail. Shantra needs them, to escape the White Realm where she has been banished to many years ago.
Simian must join force with Arilya the Queen of Lapis and all the other magical tribes, to defeat the evil sorceress Shantra. He must be prepared for the fight of his life and to kill his own beloved sister Lila, if necessary. I found this author’s imagination captured me and lifted me effortlessly into another world. I could see this book as a fantasy film for children and adults alike and it was a pleasure to review it. Aron Joice, I believe, has the a skilful imagination, on a par with writers such as Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland) J.K Rowling (Harry Potter)
