Asher Tenseiabout this book: Mana, my first published novel, is a book that really spoke to me personally...almost as if it kept telling me to write it. Mana, by term, is the Pacific Islander view that all things consist of this energy that can't be seen, except by those who can see it.
That's where Mana, my novel, came from. Would if people could actually see this energy that exists in everything? What if people could use it similarly to magic? What if people who could do this became greedy? I wanted to answer all of those questions, as well as telling the best story I knew how.
I wanted a book with rain and lots of forests. Twilight took Washington, so after some intense research. I ultimately decided that Roanoke, Virginia was my ideal setting! Then after finding the setting, I quickly figured out that I could play off an old piece of history, which set the foundation of the book. So though the book is Young Adult Fantasy, this could easily label it as Historical Fiction.
Mana is captivating and unique, as well as an enthralling addition to the young adult and fantasy genre. See what readers are saying!
