Reading Beaty's prose reveals a special affinity for the Young Adult mind. She is able to create extraordinary situations within the context and language of the tone of the times. For those who have read Beaty's other books (this reviewer has had the pleasure of reading only one to date VEILED MIST) the intensity of her fantasy creations will not be a surprise, yet the open of FALLEN RULER in a birthing room in India as a suicidal woman gives birth to a baby assisted by a blue girl who transforms into a monk is so startlingly realistic and eloquently written that by the end of that chapter the reader is glue to the story that follows. The delivered baby from chapter one, Lya, is `unwanted' by her family, and though we suspect she is anything close to human she lives a rather normal human existence until her father's life style results being involved with questionable people and Lya's sister is kidnapped and Lya and her father are transported to India where upon departing the airplane Lya is rescued from the evil men who have captured Lya and her father - her rescuers are monks who transport her to a monastery where Lya finally discovers her origins and the identity of the rescuing monks and must face that face that she is descend from another planet...and to say more in a summary would tarnish the impact of reading this book on your own. Secrets, mysteries, passion, romance, Eastern philosophical keys abound - all in fine Beaty fashion and dotted with enough dark humor to provide relief. Another fine novel from Eleanor T. Beaty. Grady Harp, May 14
Lya is a 16 year old girl born to a wealthy family who neither wants her nor loves her. The only person of that family who treats her well is her Grandmother Nee. When her father gets into a really bad business and her sister is kidnapped Lya’s journey towards the truth begins. I loved the relationships set up between the characters as well as the characters themselves. The premise of the book was engaging and I really hope that there is a sequel as I love the characters and think that the setting Beaty created is fantastic. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Imagine, if you can, feeling as though no one in your family wants you. Imagine finding out that they don't.
Then learning that not only are you not really part of that horrible family, but you are not even human!
It all comes together at the end of this delightful sci-fi thriller. And she gets to keep her grandmother.
