This is the story of a sixteen year old orphan and her younger brother trying to escape being assassinated after witnessing and identifying a murderer. Placed in the witness protection program, the perpetrators still find them. Together the youngsters endeavour to find sanctuary at their aunt’s forest cabin but are chased on the mountainous roads by the gangsters. That’s when their secret heritage and a prophecy in which the youngster features start to be revealed to them both.
With ghostly apparitions, a variety of shifters, witchcraft and even aliens from other planets, this novel is an action packed adventure, one where you’re never quite sure what may happen next or the importance of the next startling revelation. It is engagingly written, taking the reader into this decidedly different hidden world where dangers lurk everywhere. The characters are well formed, their interactions superbly portrayed and the settings described brilliantly, painting pictures of locations and situations in the imagination of the reader. I really enjoyed this paranormal adventure and presume it is the first in a new series – I certainly hope so, as I’d love to read the subsequent novels!
Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she’s hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers.
Then a very cute guy who handles a bow like Robin Hood emerges from the woods and takes them to safety at his fortress-like home.
And that’s just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets…
Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles, YA fantasy romance, and nonfiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life.
