Colleen is a clean YA portal fantasy author, life coach, host of two podcasts, lifelong type 1 diabetic, Ravenclaw, cat mom, and semi-compulsive hiker living in the Montana Rockies.
The only clues to Emma Jackman’s destiny as Talahm’s Seventh Sorceress are the tesseract birthmark on her right palm and the last, precious letter from her father on her eighteenth birthday.
When she and her brother Luke arrive from Earth to reunite with their dad, Luke has a Vision bigger and more devastating than ever before… A prophecy showing the destruction of Camelot and the death of their father Tomás. Having just gotten her dad back, Emma will not lose him again, even if she has to break the rules of magic to do it.
Someone has betrayed the crown. Talahm’s two most ancient and almighty sorcerers lay in an irreversible sleep, caused by the same curse now trapping the entire population of Camelot inside the city walls. Day by day, the curse slowly moves to the center of the city, killing nearly everyone it touches.
Emma must break the curse before it reaches the citadel, because if she doesn’t… A traitor will claim the crown of Renova over the bodies of Camelot’s people.
And Luke must wake the ancients before Emma breaks the curse, because if he doesn’t… Tomás Artair will die.
The book is a compelling read from start to finish! Set in an alternate universe where Camelot exists not in the past but parallel to our universe we are introduced to a well-adjusted and loving family with magical powers not of this world! Colleen Mitchell paints a beautiful portrait of a world with swords, magic and fantasy while keeping us grounded with well-rounded characters, a believable setting and a heartfelt story about learning the powers that come from within. The tension she builds is truly compelling - making this a real page-turner! Outstanding work. I'm looking forward to the next chronicle of Talahm!
This book is perfect for the entire family to be transported to another time and place. The storyline is compelling and the lead characters are incredibly likable. Soon after picking up this book you will find yourself rooting for Emma, Luke and Bethany as they work to solve a mystery and save the Kingdom of Renova. I can’t wait to continue this adventure with the second book.
