Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Twig of Thorn (The Blackthorn Cycle Book 1)
Una doesn’t know what to expect when she receives a letter from her estranged grandmother, summoning her to the remote Irish countryside to claim “a great inheritance.” But the run-down stone cottage with an overgrown garden can’t be the sum total of the estate…can it? With an unwanted property entanglement on her hands, Una is forced to remain in the old-fashioned village of Kylebeg until she can sell her late grandmother’s home.But Kylebeg is home to a secret Una never imagined was possible. The village isn’t just old-fashioned—it’s downright ancient. Its citizens still keep the old ways, observing the cycles of nature and communing with forces beyond the veil: The Fair Folk, a race of supernatural beings whose rumored presence in Kylebeg seems disconcertingly close.Una just wants out of this weird place. But no one in Kylebeg is willing to cut her loose easily—especially not Ailill, the compellingly gorgeous, strangely haunted musician who inhabits not only the town’s pubs and pastures, but Una’s dreams, too. As the world around her turns more mystical—and more dangerous—Una wonders whether it’s truly Kylebeg that holds a Fae secret, or whether it’s the blood flowing in her own veins.This first volume in a new urban fantasy series by L. M. Hawke is loosely based on the Victorian stage play, The Twig of Thorn. Rich with Celtic mythology, eerie magic, and just a touch of romance, The Blackthorn Cycle will delight fans of Tricia O’Malley and Emma L. Adams.
