Almana

New Edited Version:

Hidden deep inside the forest, a community of people have created a safe haven despite the terror that lies not far from their border walls. World War III has destroyed most of the world population, and the ruthless dictator named Equis is quickly gaining control over the majority of the U.S. population. Heaven has turned its back on humanity, and the angels have left their posts awaiting the end- all but one. Through visions, Almana comes to believe that one last chance for the world remains in a girl that lives in this small community. The only problem is, seventeen-year-old Alexa’s future is grim, and without her, the end is imminent. Although it means that Almana will be banished from her home until the world’s last day, she chooses to leave in hopes of not only saving humanity but Heaven as well. Bound by a supernatural connection with Alexa and her family, Almana is gifted a new home. And despite the incapability of angels to fall in love, Almana finds herself in a dilemma she hadn’t expected.

A story of friendship, love, hate, hope, and despair, Almana is the first of a three-part series.



What people are saying:

"Wow! This story hooked me from page one! A heavenly, heartbreaking and heartwarming tale full of believable characters you'll love, and love to hate. I literally could not put it down! I believe I have found my next "must read" author!"

-Regina O'Connell “Wren”

"I think that writing good quality fiction for this audience is one of hardest genres a writer can enter and of the many books I have read, few do it well enough to have broader appeal. Almana does. It is a beautifully crafted story which employs none of the more obvious routes generally taken by post-apocalyptic fiction. Although the main character, Almana, is an angel, the story deals with her as an ordinary teenager coming to terms with a new life. The world created by Julayn Adams skillfully combines fantasy, the challenges and adventures of creating a future, adding elements of danger and violence without ever becoming predictable. In short this is a very entertaining tale for any age."

-XyllaNoril'sk

"A beautiful story of a very human angel on a mission and a girl who is destined to save the world. It is a story of love and duty, of good and evil, of war and the battle for peace. Beautifully written, this story is addictive and compelling."

-Renita D'Silva “A Sister's Promise”

"Julayn writes eloquently and her descriptions are so visual that you can picture them in your mind. I particularly love the parts of the novel when it focuses on Almana's inner thoughts and loneliness…The author makes these aspects of Almana's loneliness so real that I wonder if she knows something about the unseen world that we don't. What a great surprising read."

-Sherry Mayes “Stop the World”
