Steve Davala to present Author Talk at WL library
Local author Steve Davala will talk about "The Soulkind Master," the final book in his Soulkind series, at the West Linn library at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. This final book follows the character Jace as he searches for balance in the Soulkind. Straeten is still possessed by Fay; the Darrak are poised to strike Myraton and anyone who opposes them. And a mysterious threat looms over everything as the dark Soulkind Masters move to control the land. How far will Jace go to stop the scales of magic from tipping forever toward evil?
Davala, who teaches chemistry and physics at West Linn High School, loves fantasy writing and enjoys all his characters in the Soulkind series. The series includes "The Soulkind Awakening," "The Shadow of the Soulkind" and "The Soulkind Master."
