A Hero's Curse (The Unseen Chronicles Book 1) FREE DEC. 26-30!
The fantastical adventure of a young blind girl who is propelled on a perilous journey to find her realm's missing king.
"It's one thing to hear monsters bump in the night. It's quite another to never be able to light a lamp and chase them away."
Essie Brightsday has never heard a rock basilisk scream.
She has never worn magical armor, stood up to a queen, or run from dragons. Instead, Essie, her sarcastic cat Tigrabum, (just call him "Tig"), and her secretive family struggle to survive on their small farm nestled against the forbidding cliffs of the Valley of Fire.
A Hero's Curse is the first novel in The Unseen Chronicles, a fantastical series brimming with fast-paced action, adventuresome mystery and surprising friendships, all propelled by an inventive and unique story concept. If you enjoyed the Gregor the Overlander series, this is the story of a reluctant character (this time a girl) assuming the role of a hero. Like Fablehaven it’s a humorous adventure with colorful characters.
A street-level fantasy-adventure with a healthy splash of Nancy Drewish mystery—mixed with a dollop of wit and snark.
Essie Brightsday is blind.
But that hasn’t kept her from curses, dragons, or rock basilisks in the past. Now her family lives in the bustling capital of Plen, a far cry from their small farm tucked against the Valley of Fire.
As a shadowy anarchist cult grows in the city, a scheme to pit the slums and the trade districts against the protectors emerges—a plot to ignite a civil war and reduce the capital to ashes. A dangerous game ensues as Essie, her talking cat Tigrabum, and best friends Illiana and Sam attempt to thwart Nightrage and save her city, guaranteeing this adventure will be just as eventful as the last…
Nightrage Rising is the second novel in The Unseen Chronicles, a fantastical series brimming with fast-paced action, adventuresome mystery and surprising friendships, all propelled by an inventive and unique story concept. If you are a Fablehaven or Land of Elyon fan, then an exciting new journey awaits you!
