Seer of souls

"A Rip-Roaring Series Opener!" - Kirkus Reviews

Twins Cayden and Avery Tiernan have grown up in isolation on the fringe of the realm. Gifted with forbidden skills, they hide their growing magical powers. Ancient prophecies speak of the ones with the power to depose the queen.

To protect her throne, Queen Alcina scours the land for evidence of magic, while the darker force she serves threatens the land with chaos. She is not the only huntress however. Primordial seekers discover the twins first but before they can escape, the death of a queen’s guard puts the entire village in jeopardy. To save their town, the twins flee, only to be dragged toward an unknown destiny.

Guided by her gift, Avery senses lies and treachery where others see only truth. Dare she trust her instincts? For Cayden, an irresistible voice whispers to him. Does it belong to the souls of the dead and are they calling him home?

Sample text:

THE BABY GAVE a feeble, barely discernible kick. Its twin had ceased movement but not with the natural stillness of slumber. Poison moved through their premature bodies, oozing along their tiny veins, a burning acid in their blood.
Mordecai lifted his hand from the woman’s sweaty forehead. Gwen’s panicked eyes locked onto his sad grey ones. She clutched her distended abdomen as another wave of pain ripped through her belly.
“It must be poison! This is more than simple birthing pangs.” She coughed. The motion made bile rise in her throat. Swallowing back the burning liquid, Gwen clutched Mordecai’s left hand, gripping it so tight, the knuckles of her hand whitened. “It’s reaching the babies! Mordecai, what do we do?”
