**NEWLY EXPANDED SECOND EDITION**


When elite assassin Jeda received his assignment to kill a witch and deliver her twin daughters to the Countess of Berkshire, he had no idea it would be his last. The witch stuns him with an elemental blast, but not before he's able to throw his knife. When Jeda regains consciousness, the dying witch is performing a compulsion spell between him and her daughters. 

Now bonded to the girls, Jeda's old life is forfeit. His only thought is to take the girls and run as far away as he can. He has no idea that the twins are the ones spoken of in the long-lost prophecy of The Witch Stone. Forces are gathering: the white witches want to teach them; the black witches want to use them; the Countess wants her grandchildren back, and the guild has sent their best assassin to bring them back.

Jeda must use all of his skills to stay one step ahead of them all, but will it be enough to save himself and keep the children of prophecy alive? 

The adventure continues for Jeda and the twins in book 2, Witch's Curse.

Here's what

Fans are saying


Fantasy epic, highly recommended!

This is a really great book - it moves fast, but at the same time develops the characters to the point where you will really feel for them.

Mave is a wonderful villain, in that I really, truly hated him and hoped he would come to a bad end. Jeda is a perfect anti-hero, and the girls Kala and Kara are so different from each other and unique - I was really impressed with how the authors developed them.

The Black and White Covens created a wonderful contrast and I found it highly entertaining; the Assassin's Guild is just vague enough that you are drawn between unease over the assassinations, and interest that they would provide this sort of service for hire.

Fans of epic fantasy or good, old-fashioned, high-quality storytelling will all love this book - highly recommended!!



A Fantastic and Thrilling Story!

I love fantasy novels, but I was a bit unsure of this one at first. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy a story about an assassin, but as I started to read this story, I was completely swept away.

The story is told from several points of view, which is quite interesting, as each character has their own story to tell. Set over a 10 year period, the reader gets to follow the growth of the characters and experience the changes within the various lives as they occur.

The story has several twists and turns, some of which surprised me and I never saw coming! The fight scenes are described with amazing detail and are definitely intense!

There is also a lot of violence, including abuse and mutilation, which may be upsetting to some readers. The ending left a bit of a chill climbing my spine, and made me wonder what is in store for Jeda, Kala and Kara in their future.

The authors' Debra L. Martin and David W. Small have written a fantastic fantasy novel full of danger and adventure. The story was fast paced without being rushed, and flowed beautifully from beginning to end.



Author Bio

Debra L Martin


Science fiction and fantasy author who started writing with co-author, David W Small in 2006. Writing with a co-author is challenging in itself, but when 1 author lives on the East Coast and 1 lives on the West Coast, the challenges are a bit more daunting, but because we live in an electronic world of email, Instant Messenger and Skype, the partnership is totally workable.

What makes the partnership even better is that David is my brother. We love the same types of books and that love naturally evolved into writing our own books.

Debra blogs regularly at Two Ends of the Pen about writing, publishing, ebooks, guest posts, author interviews and book reviews. You can also find a complete list of her published books on the blog.
