Jan Fischer Wade, author of Veiled Virtues, has signed with Muse-It-Up Publishing to do a print run of the novel. The ebook has been out for over a year garnering acclaim in both YA and adult audiences just as Harry Potter and Inkheart. Scheduled for release Winter/Spring 2014.
Transpiring in England, it is told from the two main characters' different perspectives, the work is a bit of a supernatural mystery and a romantic fantasy all rolled into one.
Paige didn't know that modern day English knights do exist and that she would need their protection. But all of this changed in an internet café in Newbury, England when she saw the blood on her laptop…
Paige has just graduated from high school and taken on a summer house-sitting gig in England for a friend of her mother's. Strange occurrences such as hearing voices, the house turning into a freezer, random bleeding wounds and outward markings of stigmata which appear on Paige are only a few signs that all is not as it seems. She is suddenly aware that things are happening more now that she is in Newbury – she sees bits of the future and is strangely affected by certain people and objects. In addition to all that, her supernatural potential has made her a target for an evil faction in England, the Cerberus Brotherhood, who want her for their own devices.
Then she meets Nathaniel who is an eclectic shop keeper known for little but is speculated more about in this country township. He and his family, as members of the Rosetta Guard, are all too familiar with the sinister capabilities of the "Cerbs." As Nathaniel confides his family's secrets to Paige, their love grows, as does the commitment of the Guard to Paige's cause.
This is the first in a series for Fischer-Wade, an attorney and artist from the Lincoln, Nebraska.
