Book Review: Alora: The Wander Jewel by Tamie Dearen

Alora is a fifteen-year old girl living in Montana with her Uncle Charles. She has two good friends, Beth and Wesley and is a fairly high-school student until she starts having visions of a boy with green eyes. Kaevin lives in a different world, but he is having visions of Alora also. That's when Alora finds out that she has the power of traveling to his land and bringing him to her own.
I don't want to give too much away. Alora and Kaevin, with the help of their friends, must fight to stop a war between the Clans in Kaevin's land that was instigated by her father, a sorcerer and leader in one of the Clans. Alora's power to transport things is key to winning the war.
Alora and Kaevin are destined soul-mates. This is definitely YA fantasy and I am always a little wary of teenage 'mean-for-each-other' romances, but this is a sweet story that will appeal to teenagers and older.
