Seventh Born by Author Rachel Rossano Book Spotlight

In a world where seventh born sons are valued for their strength and power, she is born a daughter.

Zezilia Ilar is the disappointment. Born after six brothers, she was supposed to be the son to restore her family’s prestige. She intends to remedy her shortcomings by being a dutiful daughter, marrying well and producing children, preferably a set of seven sons. But when someone offers her an alternative, she begins to dream of more.

In a society that worships a goddess, he follows the Almighty.

Hadrian Aleron, as a seventh son of a seventh son, stands to take up the second highest position in government, Sept Son. His main qualification for office is his birth. Despite preparing for this role from childhood, he does not desire what is to come. As a follower of the Almighty, he knows he will be the target of many, and his faith might eventually lead to death.

Rachel Rossano lives with her husband and three children in the northeastern part of the United States. Homeschooled through high school, she began writing her early teens. She didn’t become serious about pursuing a career as an author until after she had graduated from college and happily married. Then the children came.

Now she spends her days being a wife, mother, teacher, and household manager. Her evenings and free moments are devoted to her other loves, writing and book cover design. Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page.

Character Casting
I see Gal Gadot playing my heroine. Zezilia Ilar is tall and athletic in build. She carries herself well, with an elegance to her stride and demeanor thanks to the watchful guidance of her strong-willed mother. However, she has a playful, active side which stems from growing up with six older brothers. Not inclined toward the more feminine duties of housework and cooking, she tends to enjoy the outdoors, nature, and activity. Even though this is her desire, she still takes to studying easily and proves herself to be quite and eager learner as she learns to master her new found talents in sending (telepathy) and mass moving (telekinesis) abilities.

My hero could easily be played by Luke Evans. Hadrian Aleron is an intense young man of purpose. He tends toward kindness when not distracted by weighty concerns. As a youngest son groomed from young age for public office, he doesn’t have all the usual self-preservation skills of his elder brothers, but he makes up for that by being very proficient at his job, which is overseeing and supporting all the talent users in the peninsular nation of Pratinus.

Snippet #1
By late cadeomea, the time when the leaves turn brown, orange, and red in preparation for winter, I was sending instinctively and Errol proclaimed me ready to attempt using the second talent.
“I have high hopes for you in this aspect, Zez,” he informed me as he led me up the trail to the meadow. Selwyn was to join us there to observe my first lesson.
“Of the trained females to date, all of them have excelled in moving mass above their abilities at sending.”
I frowned at him. “Why?”
“The theory is that women produce more energy than men.” He pushed aside an overgrown bush and held it back for me to pass. “You see moving objects without touching them takes a different skill completely separate from the brain.”
I nodded. Force or Thought had explained in sparse detail what happened when one tried to move matter. In order to move matter, a Talent must have two things: a functioning amoveo, an organ located beneath the breastbone; and a capio gland. The capio gland produced an energy completely undetectable to the normal human senses which the amoveo then manipulated to interact with the physical world around the Talent.
All of this had been accepted and known from before the great loss. When our people were forced to disburse from the great cities in the far north after the land soured, they left most of their knowledge behind. A few scholars had thought to bring texts of information, but it had all been so long ago that only a few texts had survived. Everything known was traced back to those few sources and observations.
“It is theorized that the female capio gland produces more energy for their amoveo to utilize, thus it takes less effort from their amoveo to move something.”
“Is this why we are having the first lesson in an open field?”
Errol paused to laugh. “No, that is because I learned my lesson teaching Ilias. He literally lifted every object in the entire room on his first successful try. It took me months to teach that boy to focus. I don’t want to call down my wife’s wrath over an overturned room again. So, you shall have your first try out in the open where the worst that can happen is dirt hanging in the air.”
