An adult fantasy novel based on the premise: ‘Centuries after the witch trials magic remains hidden. Is it time to rejoin the modern world?’
There are costs of an existence known to the world. The witch trials proved that. But isolation has bred feelings of strangulation. Brindham’s existence as a safe haven tick-tocks. A lively bomb fueled by protesters, revolutionaries, and distrust fostered by seeming apathy on the part of its government. At best the unsolved crimes which triggered the spiral are laziness. At worst conspiratorial. The Organization of Security and Surveillance was supposed to be the saving grace but as some suspect–as Jackson worried–the more undistinguished traits of its leader have tainted the color of it.
I, Evina Agnew, was brought to be a pawn. That much seems true. Predicted to be the most powerful witch who ever lived my allegiance gains a certain win. I suppose both sides meant to demonstrate power, attraction, and justice, but I’ve seen through the veil. Both are bathed in blood. There are no innocent men in the game of power. I speculate an alternative. A resolve to the hands clenched around the neck of Brindham. A middle road of resolution. But does such a thing exist? Or is it simply what I want? Does it matter if what I want aligns with what is right? There have been reassurances. I won’t be alone. It ends as all begins, with hope. Hope, I haven’t made a mistake.
BRINDHAM opened a door and unleashed a series. HAVOC is the first book in this series. It is an adult fantasy novel based on the premise: ‘When the fires burn from the decisions that were made.’
Margot Kyteler-Shipton is the daughter of the most hated and most powerful witch of all time. Having none of her mother’s extreme powers, but all of the hate for everything she failed to do, Margot sets out to end the life of the ruinous witch who killed her parents. Between a meddlesome Uncle, a coven, and the mysteriously operating ‘PD,’ Margot finds herself entangled in a game of wizard’s chess. If she’s to get off the board with her life intact she’ll have to play through–and wiser–than all her opponents. Devising strategy and manoeuvring toward revenge, Margot navigates a derelict world toward the end that will finally free her of the curse her mother left behind.
