With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian Chronicles."

Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians.

While researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…
 


The smell of smoke hit us about a mile away from the castle. Eoin kicked his monstrous horse and we rode as fast as the horses would go toward it. The whole time Eoin kept saying, chan eil, over and over. It meant no in Gaelic. I said nothing, even as the dizziness came back and hit me about three minutes out. I just shoved berries into my stomach, hoping that would keep the time sickness at bay. It did for a short time. When we reached the archway of vines, I knew something was horribly wrong. The thorns that had once been there had pieces of flesh embedded in them and they were lowered significantly. No longer did they cover our heads.

“These were up higher,” I whispered.

“Aye, they were a warning. When an outsider comes into camp, they are lowered at the gate. It seems whoever entered got themselves a nasty scratch or two.” he said, pointing to the sight of blood on the ground. My stomach turned. I didn’t care for blood, I never have. I wasn’t cut out for pools of blood on the grass or anything that involved torn flesh.

“Stay behind me, Savannah. Whoever it is, still may be here.”

He pulled his bow and nocked an arrow, keeping it up and pointed ahead of him as his head was on a swivel. Only his legs clung to his massive horse, showing me the strength he must have had in them. Eoin was strong and I didn’t doubt his advantage in a fight; I just didn’t want to see it.

We reached the end of the archway and saw the destruction within. The smoke we saw came from the castle itself. All that was left was cinders and a smoldering smoke that grew up into the heavens. The once beautiful castle was now nothing. My mouth was open in shock and I couldn’t close it. People lay around us, dead. Burnt or murdered by someone horrible.

 

I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and have two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.
