The Witch Awakening (Book One of the Landers Saga)

2-19-15 ebook coverWitch_Awakening_Amazon_ReadyIn The Witch Awakening:  “The characters are full-bodied, the dialogue is terse and irreverent, the action is exciting and clever – and the book, all 414 pages of it, never has a boring moment.” –Rapid River Arts & Culture Magazine

The odor of burning flesh and the screams of those condemned to the flames disturb the dreams of young Safire of Long Marsh. Safire struggles to keep the curse of her psychic abilities secret, lest she be burned at the stake as a witch in her native land Cormalen. Forced to keep her talents hidden instead of learning how to use them, Safire is ill-prepared to face the evil that awaits her. When she meets the rebellious Merius of Landers, a nobleman determined to escape his overbearing father’s influence, she finally finds someone who accepts her. But their romance interferes with court plots and family duty and ultimately leads Safire to confront the dark secrets of the House of Landers alone. What she finds there proves to be a test of her unusual gifts, a test that could free the soul of a haunted man–or end in her death.
