About the Book

Book:  Heart of the Ajs
Author: T.E. Bradford
Genre:  Fantasy / Sci-Fi blend
Release Date: September 16, 2019
She has magic she cannot use…
He has a secret she must uncover.
ASFAR, first planet from the sun is a desert planet steeped in superstition and tradition. Nafisa el Faruz is the princess, defender of the sun and champion of her people. Hers is the most powerful magic—zaman, holder of time.
TRINITOS, third planet, is home to the sky gate and the wicked man who controls its use, the Ajs An’hlj. He is yunfah—a wind walker, one who can control the air itself. The only thing he covets more than control is power, and he has his sights set on Nafisa.

 This may be a quick read but it sure has some powerful lessons in it. I loved Nafisa and how humbled she was. As a princess she had powers that others wanted to use for evil. I was so upset when her father said she had to marry someone who only wanted to gain her special gift. Why would her father do something that would surely seal her fate? 
I loved the description of the planets and felt myself front and center aboard a spacecraft. It as a bit unnerving when Nafisa is bound to the Ajs in marriage. We don’t always know what God’s plans are but He always protects us. Nafisa wavered  in her faith for just a moment like many of us do. We look at our circumstances and feel it is hopeless. I loved the story and hope the author will continue with a follow up book.  It is a good example of trusting God and having faith even though it may look like disaster is about to happen. I have to mention how beautiful the cover of the book is. It really helps readers visualize Nafisa. 
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. 
About the Author
Tracy is the author of the Divide Series, Six World Sagas, and International Bestseller: Kindled Legends – Written in the Stars.
When she’s not busy writing, she can be found taking a scenic drive with her family, snapping photos, or giving voices to her son’s stuffed animals. She reclines her feet in Upstate New York with her very own grumpy kitty, the husband God made just for her, and the son who is her forever best story.

More from Tracy

A large part of the plot for Heart of the Ajs stemmed from a conversation I had with my son. He’d asked me why he still had bad dreams, even after praying for God to take them away.
I searched for the words to explain why God doesn’t always say yes. Sometimes he says no. Or maybe. Or wait–which for me is the hardest answer of all. I thought of an example from when we’d been looking for a new house and didn’t get the one we’d been hoping for. We were so disappointed. But God had a better house in mind for us. We just didn’t know it yet. And at one point my job became very toxic, when after seven years of work I got pregnant and suddenly managers who’d promoted me several times were telling me I wasn’t cutting it. God had a better job in mind for me. I just didn’t know it yet.
I started to wonder if I could weave this truth into a story I’d been working on about a girl who didn’t feel her father or God were listening. She couldn’t see a way out, or understand how anything good could come from where she was.
Yet our precious Heavenly Father always has a plan. A perfect, incredible plan far beyond our wildest imaginings. One He is faithful to reveal with perfect timing.
Even if we may not know it yet.
