An Ancient War
Emaline walks down the dark street much more quickly than she would during the day. She tells herself to slow down and scolds herself for indulging silly, childish fears—she’s thirteen, after all!—but continues to hurry. There’s something spooky about this neighborhood at night and the sooner she can get back home, the better.
She doesn’t even see her assailants until they grab her.
In a moment, Emaline’s world changes forever. She finds herself held hostage by Violet and the sinister obeah as they try to coax Anthony, one of the Christ-following magi, out of hiding to come to her rescue. The situation is perilous, but Emaline’s fear turns to amazement when Violet conjures a dark blue fireball out of thin air. When red flames suddenly start flickering through Emaline’s fingers, burning the flesh of the obeah holding her, she finds herself caught up in the middle of a 2,000-year-old war between the obeah and the magi.
A Desperate Situation
Anthony helps Emaline escape from the obeah, but Violet and the others refuse to leave her alone. When Emaline gets kidnapped and held hostage, it’s up to the outnumbered magi to mount a dangerous rescue mission.
In the Tradition of Narnia, Wonderland and Hogwarts...
Emaline’s Gift is a Christian fantasy novel full of magic, excitement and suspense. Great for teens and adults who love fantastical adventures or for parents to read aloud as an action-packed bedtime story, the first book in The Magi Chronicles is an exhilarating introduction to a whole new world—and the God who is always in control!
A Special Note from the Author
My kids and I love reading the magical adventures of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson together. We get drawn in by the storytelling, the action and the vibrant characters. As a parent, I began thinking how wonderful it would be if my daughters could read the exciting fantasy stories that they enjoy so much and strengthen their faith at the same time. Emaline’s Gift, the first book in The Magi Chronicles, is my attempt at meeting that need. Readers of all ages can get swept away by the magical adventures of Emaline and the magi and find their faith encouraged by godly characters who follow Christ passionately at the same time. I believe fiction can be a powerful means of teaching and that we can grow a lot through meaningful stories. It’s my prayer that Emaline’s Gift encourages and excites you while drawing you ever closer to the King of kings and Lord of lords. Thanks for reading!
