Mystery girl.
On her twelfth birthday, Kahlara Apella ponders the enigma that is her. Why is she the only one in her overprotective family who can read thoughts (not that she spies on her siblings or anything), heal injuries, demolish bad guys (a terrifying experience), and tap into her silver core? The answers elude her. Enough already!

Kahlara is determined to change her sheltered life. She pleads for and gains her freedom. Kahlara explores the woods, builds a tree house, swims in a hidden pond, and encounters a young stranger.

Shy boy.
Shay, a lonely village kid, sings like an angel and plays the lute like a troubadour. Over the summer, Shay befriends this odd girl who can change the color of her eyes.

Parents on a mission.
Myles and Elara Apella organize a rebellion against the Rzash Empire. Fearful of their family's safety, especially their amazing daughter, they move cautiously through the dark secrets of their cause.

Gentle giant.
Sebastian is an injured Crad slave. Simple and loving, Seb watches over the Apella children. Elara grows certain there is more to the alien than meets the eye.

Kahlara and Shay.
Compelled, Kahlara touches Shay transferring her silver abilities. An unseen spy reports them. Soon, tragedy tears them apart.

Like a pebble dropped in their beloved pond, the ripples spawn a tsunami of rebellion, intrigue, ecological weapons, alien metamorphosis, silver abilities, and interstellar warfare.

Will Kahlara's strange purpose save them?

It begins with the Song who would be human.

About the Author

S. L. Bradbury grew up in Western Massachusetts with two lifelong passions: science fiction and horses. She worked in the health care industry as an infection preventionist, where reality was often stranger than fiction. Ms. Bradbury waged continuous war against the microbes while doing extensive technical writing in the field until she began writing science fiction full-time.
She hails from a family of writers. Her grandfather Grover Bradbury was a Maine poet, and her father, Carl Bradbury, was a newspaper journalist and editor. Ms. Bradbury is the nine-times-removed granddaughter of Mary (Perkins) Bradbury, who was tried and convicted of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692. She lives in the Berkshire Hills, in a little yellow house with a great big view. The Thirteenth Song is her third novel and final in the Song trilogy.
