Summary:

Not everyone wants magic.

In a world where humans hate witches, there’s no one who hates them more than Jameson Tyler – they are the reason his mother and little sister are dead. Then one morning, he wakes to find those he’s hated for his entire life are now his only hope to understanding his new identity, his new life…as a witch.

Jameson has to get to the witch’s side of town – a place he’s never been and has loathed his entire life – and give up everything he’s ever known before the Witch Special Forces (WSF) captures him. On top of avoiding the WSF, when his new Headmistress attacks him, things get even more complicated.

He must accept his new fate and life before being killed, letting the Magical Community fall into the wrong hands. Can Jameson put his hatred aside or will he let his prejudice destroy them all?

Genre: YA/NA High Fantasy/ Adventure
Release Date: 19 January 2021

Summary:

BEHIND THE MASK OF DUTY AND POWER, NO ONE IS WHO THEY SEEM…

Centuries after the Forgotten Wars ravaged the world and turned it to ash, the Houses of Pilar, Darakai, Boreal, and Bastiion forged an accord with the royal line of Thoarne, founding a Quadren of advisory to the throne of Orynthia. Every generation, a single Haidren from each of the four Houses is appointed to this coveted chair.

Upon her Ascension to adulthood, Luscia Tiergan takes her seat at court as al’Haidren to the House of Boreal and is quickly drawn into a maze of political traps and dark secrets. As she adjusts to her new life, Luscia uncovers a pattern of forgotten children, slain in the streets of Bastiion.

Raised on superstitious rumors about Boreal’s penchant for sorcery, Zaethan Kasim, al’Haidren to the House of Darakai, inevitably clashes with Lusica when she arrives in Bastiion. But when his position is threatened by an old rival, Zaethan is forced to set aside his hatred and form an uneasy alliance with the Boreali al’Haidren to secure his claim.

Following a disturbing stream of innocent bloodshed across Orynthia, Luscia and Zaethan discover their ideals are far more aligned than they might have imagined. But in a land of war and deceit, the path to peace should never be trusted.

Title: The Claires (An Ascenders Novel)
Author: C.L. Gaber
Genre: YA, Paranormal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

C.L. Gaber’s The Claires is probably not where I was supposed to start the Ascenders series. But I did start it here, and I’m not mad about it.

The Claires are four sisters who were first born in 1911. The quadruplets each have an extraordinary power: Claire V is clairvoyant; she is clear seeing of the future. Claire S is clairsentient; she has an exact feeling of others’ emotions, Clair A is clairaudient; she is clear hearing and can tap into the spirit realm, and Clair C is Claircognizant, which is clear all-knowing. Every lifetime they die on their seventeenth birthday only to be reborn two months later for the cycle to begin again.

In the year 2013, the girls are sixteen and pre-planning their upcoming seventeenth birthday. This time they are hoping to break the curse finally. They’ve lived this entire life differently and are hoping that it will make a difference.
