Imagine growing up in a world that has always been at war. In fact, at war so long that no one actually remembers why they are at war in the first place. This is the world that Ann Denton has created in Kiah's Soul-Shifting Journey: The Quadrant War. Kiah is a young girl that has a unique talent called Soul-Shifting, or as her older brother used to call it Butterfly Dreaming. During these episodes she is able to travel outside her body to see things happening in other places, to other people and at other times, in the past or the future. She and a small group of friends band together against this war, the Quadrant War that has always been going on, but no one even remembers why, and the fighting is far from their daily lives but the effects are seen in the poor conditions of the towns. As they start to fight against the war, and as Kiah soul-shifts they find that nothing they knew about their world, or this war is quite what it seems, and life doesn't have to be as much of a struggle as it is.

Kiah's Soul-Shifting Journey: The Quadrant War brings us to a world that is fighting a war, each quadrant against each other, and it has been this way so long, no one remembers why. The premise of the story is so realistic, it could easily be any country today. The effects of the long-standing war on the towns and villages is seen in daily life, and translates to current life quite well. Ann Denton then brings in the fantasy world with the Soul-shifting aspect. Using this unique concept to discover the truths of the war, the history and the future is top notch. Adult and young adult readers alike will be able to find things that relate to todays life, and moral lessons as well. A merger of fantasy, history and inspiration, this is a book that anyone will enjoy.
