(PRWEB) July 25, 2018

Book One: Beginnings: The Legend of Ilia is a story about coming together during a time that separates people from one another. It tells of finding one's self and the journey to choose which path one should take to survive the chaos and challenges.

The book revolves around the lives and adventures of seven orphans separated from their parents during The Lion Wars in Ilia. They are raised together in a Sylvian cottage until another war brews, threatening to consume the entirety of Ilia and shake up their lives.

Book One: Beginnings: The Legend of Ilia unravels an inspiring account of finding one's self and of fighting for survival—not with hatred and vengeance in one's heart, but in walking the path towards a heroic destiny with grace, hope, truth, and love according to God's purpose. It follows the self-awakening discovery of these orphans who are uncertain of their identities and destinies.

As the orphans do, readers can expect to learn that only through embracing the truth can one find redemption and accept who they are. Other roads, through lies and empty promises, lead to desolation and despair.

As well as an author, Nicole Segda is a CAD drafter who designs life safety systems. She is a volunteer teaches children about using one's talents in singing and dancing to worship the Lord. She is also a black belt in judo and, together with her husband, runs a Martial Arts Ministry out of their Columbus, Ohio, home church.
