Her world is in peril. Magick is her only hope. As of this morning, she still can’t cast a single spell.
On an island hidden from the rest of the world, Flynn Hawthorn, the ninth daughter of the ninth daughter, lives under a curse. In a land filled with magick, Flynn is forced to live her life as a Watcher—born into magick, but unable to wield it.
Her birth fulfills an ancient prophecy that’s waited nine generations to be satisfied. Flynn must reunite the separated halves of the Book of Shadow and Light to restore balance to her world.
Dark forces oppose her purpose and as the threat from the Shadow Coven of Southeil touches her shores for the first time in generations, Flynn must pretend—with the help of her best friend Hazel—that she actually has magick. Hazel would do anything for Flynn, but the game they are playing may cost them their lives…

Interview with the AuthorQ - So, what makes The Chronicles of Hawthorn series special?
A - It's actually a mix of things. When I chose to write these books, I wanted to create a diverse story that reminded me of the kind of fantasy, magic, and advenure books I like to read. My top picks are usually epic fantasy novels, any of the witch and wizard best sellers, and, of course, books featuring magic, spells, and potions with a dash of humor. Basically, anything with a fantasy genre flavor and a fast-paced style gets my click.
The Chronicles of Hawthorn books are a great mix of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on the magic and adventure / young adult fantasy genre overall, with a pinch of travel fiction thrown in for good measure, a strong self-esteem story line, and an adventurous take on magic and friendships to keep things interesting!
Overall, The Chronicles of Hawthorn series is designed with short, punchy chapters to keep you turning the pages - and I've made sure you’ll want to know what happens next.Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - If you want to read them in order and follow the Flynn’s story as it builds, I'd suggest the following sequence:

- The Shadow Calls (Book 3)
- Taken by the Shadow (Book 4)
