The Onchei are back.
And trouble looms...
The Onchei want to learn what happened to their brethren on Algoran from the only survivor, Zeetra. Yet they learn instead she has broken the Onchei’s highest law: never intermarry or have children with another race. For this, she now faces execution.
Jordan SnowFire fears the Onchei will blame the Mokta and seek retribution soon. Only an ancient heirloom, which contains the ultimate Onchei knowledge, can save the Mokta...except it's on Earth, a world she hasn't seen in decades.
Jordan sends her son, Arrow, and her friend's daughter, Maska, to rescue Zeetra while she travels back to Earth to seek the Onchei artifact. What tie is there between a thousand-year-old object and Jordan's ancestors? Could this explain why she and her mother were originally abducted and brought to Algoran?
In the skies of Algoran, a final confrontation looms between the Onchei and the Mokta. And on Earth, Jordan finds more than she could have possibly imagined...

Book Description: Jordan Lewis and her mother have been abducted and marooned on an alien world.
Taken in by a friendly tribe of natives, Jordan tries her best to adapt to living on this strange planet called Algoran. Jordan becomes a respectable huntress, but she still longs for the life she once knew on Earth.
When she learns the beings who took her may be on the other side of Algoran, she sets out for answers. Joined by three of her fellow hunters, Jordan crosses dangerous terrain, facing perilous creatures and people.
Will Jordan risk death for a chance to return to Earth?
What is God's will for her life on Algoran?
Exploring the life of an ordinary young woman torn from all she's ever known, Jordan's World shows that God reigns over the whole universe, and that consequences can sometimes span solar systems.
My thoughts: This book started out a little slow for me. I liked the premise behind the story but it took a little bit of time for me to figure out the world that Jordan and her mother found themselves in. They land in a tribal community on an alien planet. Once I figured things out the story became more interesting to me.
The book centers on Jordan and her experiences as a huntress. She has three friends that are part of her hunting pack. They know and trust each other as they face dangerous situations. Jordan meets a variety of tribes on the planet. One is sophisticated enough to travel through portals to Earth. And others are dangerous and have hidden agendas.
Overall I would say that this story is about growing and becoming. Jordan has difficult decisions and knows that there is a deity who watches over her, even though she is far away from home. She learns for herself where her home is and whom she can believe in.
I am intrigued at what future endeavors and adventures await Jordan and her friends.
I received a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
