|About the Book|
Upon starting her new job in the Amazon Rainforest, Ayanna is less than thrilled to find her study of plants to be uneventful. However, when she discovers a path leading to the heart of the jungle, she finds a specimen unlike any other-Dianthe, a rare spider-lily-in a splendorous enclosure. This stunning flower leads Ayanna to two men-twins that each have alternative motives for wanting her trust. As the plot unfolds and she learns more about the reasons for the twins strange behavior, she discovers that perhaps the plants being studied are no longer harmless creatures under glass, but rather vicious predators using beauty and innocence as a lure into their deadly trap. Written by young author Kristyn Brandi, Efflorescence is not only a fantastic tale of the interaction between prey and predator on a quest for survival. Rather, it is a look at the bonds formed in dire situations and how trust in others is needed in order to form the faith in oneself necessary to effloresce-to grow from a fragile seed and blossom into a stronger individual.
