Depending on your fancy, any world may do. Whether a fantasy, romance, drama, or short story, every world has its reasons for existing.
You might find yourself in the darkness of the wild Range, a place where evil and good are so wrapped about each other that you would hard-pressed to discover the differences. You may join the Chaotics and Preachers who make up that world
You may discover the peaceful seaside town of Leaf, where romance is in the air. Journey down to the pub or make your way to the hotel and discover who waits for you there.
Maybe you dive deep into Wonderland and meet a Mad Hatter and his heroic Alice. There the odd world spins on its head and becomes a different kettle of onions all together.
Or perhaps, just perhaps, you want to taste all the myths and legends our world has to offer wrapped within magic. Journey four steps down and two steps up to the Unseen realm, a place that runs parallel to Earth.
Whatever your journey, lay breadcrumbs on your path…you may not come back unchanged.
A world within a world, the Unseen is set upon the plains of existence between Earth and the magical. Follow the adventures of the Intellectuals, magicians who have no boundaries, and the journey of Meg Thorne, an apprentice who is searching for her place in this new world.
A Twisted Faire
Every thirteen years, a magical faire appears within the depths of London and sends out a call to ordinary citizens to experience its wonders. Controlled by a group of magicians called the Intellectuals, its magical tendrils wrap about the imagination and dreams of people who have no reason to dream.
But in 1895, shadows begin to creep within the Faire, and it becomes a place of nightmares and death. Soon, the lives of all who dwell within it are at risk. Something has caused it to sicken and the answer lies within the magicians themselves.
Rae Pace is the youngest of the Intellectuals. Despite her potential, her power is spiralling out of control and her fellow magicians turn on her. With her deep connection to the Faire, Rae’s downward spiral into the darkness seems unavoidable as nightmares claw their way into her mind. Rae has a choice to make. Does she hide within the darkness where she is safe or does she become something more than a simple magician? Does she become a saviour to those who would trap her?
An Unseen Magician
(Book 1 Of the Unseen Chronicles)
Meg Thorne is having a bad day. Maybe even the worst day in her life, she can’t quite be sure. When a kindly old man in the subway asks her to deliver a message across the street, she thinks nothing of it. How can her day get any worse, after all?
Only it does. Meg finds that the world she steps into is not her hometown but a place known as the Wheel Road, a city teeming with magic, mythical creatures, and exiled gods. All she has to do to get out is to get to the other side of a place called ‘Market’. An easy task, she thinks, but of course it isn’t so simple. Meg finds herself on the run from a dark magician who will stop at nothing to keep her message from getting to where it needs to go. Her message, as it turns out, is to incite revolution within this stagnant world that she is a stranger to and it is a revolution those in power are trying desperately to avoid. With only a magical dog and his surly master to help her, Meg finds herself on a whirlwind adventure that will end with her getting to the other side of the mysterious Market or with her death.
Meg really wasn’t ready for that when she got out of bed this morning.
The Unseen Apprentice
(Book 2 of the Unseen Chronicles)
Meg Thorne has done the incredible and returned to the mysterious Wheel Road. Determined to find her place in this strange world, she becomes an apprentice to the volatile magician, Seberon Wilde.
But learning magic and dealing with her prickly teacher is more than Meg bargained for. Both lazy and afraid of Meg’s natural ability, Seb has no intention of teaching her until the Raven Lord himself intervenes.
Meg becomes entrenched in magic and learning, travelling about the Boroughs to the Great Libraries and the Clocktower, bastions of knowledge and power.
Equally determined to prevent her from learning, Charles Vex continues to plague Meg’s lessons and attempts to provoke both her and Seb into a duel they cannot win.
But Meg hears a call, a call that no one else can hear.
A call from deep within that seduces her into using more magic than an apprentice should ever touch. Suddenly everything is not what it seems and Meg has to learn to trust the very person she has become since she came to the Wheel Road.
A person she was always meant to be.
