Book One of the Landers Saga
The odor of burning flesh and the screams of those condemned to the flames disturb the dreams of young Safire of Long Marsh. Safire struggles to keep the curse of her psychic abilities secret, lest she be burned at the stake as a witch in her native land Cormalen. Forced to keep her talents hidden instead of learning how to use them, Safire is ill-prepared to face the evil that awaits her. When she meets the rebellious Merius of Landers, a nobleman determined to escape his overbearing father's influence, she finally finds someone who accepts her. But their romance interferes with court plots and family duty and ultimately leads Safire to confront the dark secrets of the House of Landers alone. What she discovers there proves to be a test of her unusual gifts, a test that could free the soul of a haunted man--or end in her death.
The Witch Awakening
I don't to reviews, but this is one the best I have read especially being a free book. Great story! Very imaginative. Hard to put down. Only half way through but can't wait to see what happens next. Great love story! You won't be disappointed.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
Intriguing story and it flows well.
The Makings of a Saga!
Whilst reading this novel, I became aware that Karen Nilsen has the makings of great writer, very much on par with George Martin, Robert Jordan and other writers of sagas. Just without the hundreds of characters and myriad of sub-plots.
An excellent read!
