The people of Nelebek live in fear of persecution from the evil Morlet, who reigns with a dark and destructive magic. The kingdom’s only hope lies with the Order of the Krigers—twelve warriors with mysterious powers linked to magical weapons.

For over a century, Morlet has been annihilating the Order, picking them off one by one. Eleven Krigers have been hunted down, tortured, and imprisoned in his dungeon. Now only one remains.

Sixteen-year-old Kaia survives by keeping her head down and minding her own business. But when she finds herself in the middle of a public execution where the mysterious Morlet is in attendance, an odd compulsion she can’t resist comes over her when she looks into Morlet’s eyes. Soon, an ancient power awakens, and Kaia can’t blend into the scenery anymore. Will she heed the call of the Krigers or will Morlet’s dark magic destroy the last of the Order?

He cocked his head to the side, studying me. As he waved his hand in an arc, a blast of heat hit me. I cried out and fell to my knees—our eyes still locked on one another.

Was the king using his dark magic on me? My arms and legs shook. I couldn’t stand or tear my eyes away from Morlet’s. The word Kriger was spoken in my head, gently, like a whisper of smoke curling around a branch.

Kriger. This time louder, more forceful, almost accusing. My palms tingled. Something swelled in them below the surface. What was happening? A hand clamped down on my arm, and I was finally able to break eye contact with the king.

“Look at me and focus,” a gruff voice whispered. I glanced at the man holding me. “We don’t have much time.” He released my arm. “Can you touch this?” He pulled out a silver necklace from under his shirt. A large, round medallion dangled from it. I hesitated since I had no idea who this man was or why he was helping me. “Unless you want to be arrested, do as I say.”

“Move!” Morlet roared. He descended the platform and started to make his way toward me.

I reached out and touched the warm medallion. The man cursed.

“Where did she go?” the king shouted frantically, unable to see me through the dense crowd.

“Morlet is coming for you.” The man slipped off his large, fur-trimmed jacket and handed it to me. “Put this on.”

Lightning streaked across the sky, backlighting the eighteen-year-old goddess as she stood silhouetted against the maelstrom outside. Her auburn hair was wind-whipped and plastered to her neck and face, and though newly reborn, her divinity was something she could never hide … at least not from me.

“How far is it to the temple?” she asked.

“Five hours, but hopefully, you can get some sleep along the way. You’ll need your energy for when we arrive.”

Gaia pulled her jean jacket over her soaked cotton tee and followed me from the room. She was oblivious of the Crags and their intent to kill her, and it was my job––and my punishment—to keep it that way. To protect her from everything … even knowing they exist. After losing my own daughter, and the training I’d forced myself through, this was a task I would not fail again.

Fifteen-year-old Monte moves to the mystically jeopardized Highlands of Scotland and discovers that life as a Celtic wizard is anything but easy. Whisperings of abnormal enchantments and vicious cat siths grip the small town he now calls home. Fear is at the helm and the instigator is unknown. An indefinite moratorium on magic is enforced.

Excerpt:

“Fort William is your father’s hometown,” Mrs. Darrow added. “You probably won’t remember much; you were quite young the last time we visited.”

“Aye,” Mr. Darrow answered as they stepped through the archway onto a path overgrown with moss. The earthy lane extended a short way ahead of them before joining with a crumbly sidewalk that lined an even more decrepit road. Fields, full of sleepy pre-autumn grass, stretched in an abundance of acreage on the other side of the road. The sky, burdened with a collection of wooly gray clouds, smelled of the luscious nectar of the land.

“Ah . . .” Mr. Darrow closed his eyes, a grin teasing his mouth. “It’s good to be home.”

“Welcome te Scotland, yeh bonnie bunch!” a cheery voice trailed from the sidewalk ahead. A small pixie of a woman with hair the color of strawberry cream danced around excitedly, several paces in front of them. Although wrinkles corrugated her face, she emitted a sense of matronly style. Her baby-fine hair fluffed over her head in short, playful tufts, perfectly poised yet with the potential for craziness.

“Mum!” Mr. Darrow exploded into a squeal.

“Oh wow, Grandmother Meriweather hasn’t changed a bit.” Monte turned to Garrick.

“And Dad . . .” Garrick cocked an eyebrow. “He’s reverted back to a six-year-old. Look at him, doing the potty-dance and everything.”

Monte chuckled.

Grandmother Meriweather bounded toward them with open arms. “Ah, yer here at long last!” She reached Mr. Darrow first. “Esca, how’d you manage at the portals? Yer looking overworked, I see. Vanessa, dear!”

The words spilled from her mouth, her Scottish accent thick and rich. “Garrick, son! I hardly recognized yeh,” she said, using the highest form of endearment as she cupped his cheeks in the palms of her hands. “Ah, and Monte. My, how you’ve stretched!” She placed her hands on his shoulders. “Welcome, son.” Her radiant blue eyes looked up at his. “Welcome te Scotland, the Land of True Enchantment.”
