An Average Curse: A Tale of Friendship and Magic (The Chronicles of Hawthorn Book 1)

by Rue

Her world is in peril. Magick is her only hope. As of this morning, she still can’t cast a single spell.

On an island hidden from the rest of the world, Flynn Hawthorn, the ninth daughter of the ninth daughter, lives under a curse. In a land filled with magick, Flynn is forced to live her life as a Watcherâ??born into magick, but unable to wield it.

Her birth fulfills an ancient prophecy that’s waited nine generations to be satisfied. Flynn must reunite the separated halves of the Book of Shadow and Light to restore balance to her world.

Dark forces oppose her purpose and as the threat from the Shadow Coven of Southeil touches her shores for the first time in generations, Flynn must pretendâ??with the help of her best friend Hazelâ??that she actually has magick. Hazel would do anything for Flynn, but the game they are playing may cost them their livesâ?¦

Interview with the Author

Q – So, what makes The Chronicles of Hawthorn series special?

A – It’s actually a mix of things. When I chose to write these books, I wanted to create a diverse story that reminded me of the kind of fantasy, magic, and advenure books I like to read. My top picks are usually epic fantasy novels, any of the witch and wizard best sellers, and, of course, books featuring magic, spells, and potions with a dash of humor. Basically, anything with a fantasy genre flavor and a fast-paced style gets my click.

The Chronicles of Hawthorn books are a great mix of these genres. You’ll find the series focuses on the magic and adventure / young adult fantasy genre overall, with a pinch of historical fiction thrown in for good measure, and an adventurous take on magic and friendships to keep things interesting!

Overall, The Chronicles of Hawthorn series is designed with short, punchy chapters to keep you turning the pages – and I’ve made sure you’ll want to know what happens next.

Q – What order should I read the books in?

A – If you want to read them in order and follow the Flynn’s story as it builds, I’d suggest the following sequence:

– The Courage of Kahu (Series Prequel, novella)

– An Average Curse (Book 1)

– Key to the Journey (Book 2)

– The Shadow Calls (Book 3)

– Taken by the Shadow (Book 4)

– The Prisoner of Light (Book 5)

– Secrets of Kabara (Book 6, February 2018)

– Daughter of Shadow (Book 7, May 2018)

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because The Chronicles of Hawthorn series is a historical fantasy series that features adventure, female characters and nature based magic! Book one hit the top 100 bestsellers list on Kindle for Teen & Young Adult > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Wizards & Witches, and Taken by the Shadow was nominated for Cover of the Month on All Authors.

At the end of the day, readers who enjoy historical fantasy with a plot that features two best friends and a rich cast of supporting characters will get a fantastic adventure out of this series.

Q – Can readers get the whole series in one bundle?

A – Of course. I put together a bundle for readers who would like to read the entire series and save a little cash, too. Check out my author page here at Amazon for more details, and a full list of my available titles.

My Life in Black and White

by Chris Edmonds

A mysterious story of lust, treachery, violent death and reincarnation.
Bess was born the first time in Louisiana as the younger daughter of slaves who were emancipated a few years later. She grew up to be an intelligent, adventurous young woman for whom freedom was everything but of particular importance was the freedom to choose what she did and what she didn’t believe in. And she chose to reject other people’s convictions of a spiritual nature since, it seemed to her, none of them could be proven by the scientific thinking she found so important. To her these philosophies amounted to nothing more than â??silly ideas’. However, as a result of her fun-loving and sometimes daringly amorous life style, she ended up getting trapped in various other people’s belief systems with hellish results and no obvious way out. Doomed to keep reliving the same mistakes in unending and agonizing reincarnations she finally stumbled on the opportunity to escape and find true freedom, freedom of the spirit. But has she learned life’s lessons well enough to be make good use of the chance now that finally it’s here?
