The First
Dylan S. Perry

1645. Naseby, England.

Baroness De Meaux lives a comfortable life and is content with where she fits into the hierarchy of society. She was groomed for the story she’s telling but several things set her apart from everyone around her.

When her mother passes away suddenly, the visions she hides from the world—the ones that show her the future—force their way to the surface. And when she’s faced with the impossible, it leaves her questioning just how far apart her two contradicting worlds really are from another.

Can Margaret make peace with her past and what she assumes is her imagination? Or will she give into the myths from her childhood to shape the future?

Through it all, Margaret knows one truth is universal: trust is hard-won and easily broken when you don’t know who’s on your side.

Accidental Magic
Iris Beaglehole
Originally $4.99

Welcome to Myrtlewood, a quirky town, steeped in magic, tea and mystery…
Life’s a struggle for Rosemary Thorn and her teen daughter, Athena. But their regular troubles are turned upside down after Granny Thorn’s mysterious death.

Despite her cousin’s sinister manoeuvrings, Rosemary returns to Myrtlewood and the sprawling, dilapidated Thorn Manor. But there’s more to the old house than meets the eye, as Rosemary and Athena soon find out — in a whirlwind of magic, adventure, mystical creatures and endless cups of tea.

Life in Myrtlewood would be bliss if Rosemary could only clear her name in a certain murder investigation, solve the mystery and stay out of mortal peril – for at least a little while!

A small town with endless secrets, strange activities and a house with a mind of its own.

If you love mystery, witches, paranormal women’s fiction with a midlife main character and a big dose of humour, you’re going to love Myrtlewood Mysteries Book 1.

Think “Gilmore Girls meets Practical Magic”

Silvery Road
C. M Neary

A cursed child. A haunting vision through the rain. Can he save their souls while there’s still time?

Raven Brown has returned to a home in disarray. While the brave boy desperately seeks a human connection after losing his father, the selfish townspeople have instead stolen all his possessions. And now his only hope for a way out lies in the twisted visage of a woman who only appears when it rains.

Hunting down his missing articles, Raven stumbles upon a mysterious music box containing both clues and more questions. And as he undertakes a harrowing journey through magical mirrors, he encounters banshees, dead children… and an impossible future.

Can this fearless youth fulfil his fate before the answers are lost to the world forever?

The Keeper & Silvery Road is the engrossing second book in the Keeper YA Fantasy series. If you like conflicted characters, high-stakes drama, and shocking twists, then you’ll love C.M Neary’s dark tale.
