Nera is a normal teenage girl living in Ireland, or so she thought until she discovers the family secret.. now her world is forever changed.

Descended from a long line of witches, she discovers she is the one who has to stop the curse that has taken the life of every girl before her.

And if that isn't enough, she must learn to use magic from the man called Bones. He is the son of Mari, Queen of the Witches...and a god. It is Bones who has been entrusted to teach her the skills she needs to stay alive, which wouldn't be so bad if he didn't have an uncanny knack for pushing her buttons.

Can Nera succeed and resist the charms of the man who gets under her skin at every opportunity



 

The Excerpt
 
“Nera, calm down,” Jasper whispered in my ear.  He pulled me close and cradled my head against his chest.  “Just listen to my voice and relax.  Go with the dream, try not to fight it.”

 My head felt tight, and I fought for control of my emotions, the panic rising in my throat.  Still, I struggled through the fog.  Jasper’s quiet voice encouraged me to relax, until finally I slipped into the dark hole where it could no longer touch me.
 
When I woke, I was lying down on one of the overstuffed couches in the library with Brie hovered over me.  Jasper was sitting opposite, Sully beside him, both watching me intently.  I glanced around the room and took in all the things I had grown up with while my mind tried to settle.  Huge stuffed animal heads gazed down at me with glassy eyes, looking more threatening than before.  Everything seemed to have changed for me.  I no longer felt innocent and carefree.  Something sinister had encroached into my life and changed everything forever.
I sat up and brushed off the nausea that threatened.  Shaking my head, I struggled to control my thoughts before I turned to Jasper.  “Are you going to tell me, or is it a secret?”  I hugged my hands around my stomach and willed my body to do what I wanted it to.

 “No, girl dear, I will tell you.”  His gaze dropped to his hands that were twisted together on his lap.  “I just need to find the right words, but before I do, you must realize, all of you, that your life will never be the same.” 

 


About the Author
 
Ari Harper never wanted to grow up.
To offset the limitations of aging ungracefully, she created her own set of unique worlds where she can be and do whatever she wants.
 
Gods, witches and demons surround Ari while she spins her magic, doing mainly what they tell her to do. Given a chance, she prefers to work amongst chaos, which is good because she is constantly surrounded by children, all clamoring for attention. Some of them end up in her stories, some of them even get to die grisly deaths or be cast away to another realm.
