Curse of the Shamra: The Shamra Chronicles Book 1
by Barry Hoffman
One girl stands alone, different from the rest.
When the peaceful and isolated land of the Shamra is invaded and its people enslaved, a young Shamra girl named Dara must lead a ragtag resistance to defeat the enemy. But even as she fights the invaders, Dara grapples with self-doubt and is criticized by her own people for being outspoken and different.
