Waterspell Book 1 by Deborah J. Lightfoot
Making a place for yourself in a world where you don’t belong takes courage. So does moving in with a warlock.
Drawn into the schemes of an angry wizard, Carin glimpses the place she once called home. It lies upon a shore that seems unreachable. To learn where she belongs and how to get there, the lost traveler must decipher the words of an alien book, follow the clues in a bewitched poem, conjure a dragon from a pool of magic — and tread carefully around a tortured, emotionally scarred sorcerer who can’t seem to decide whether to love her or kill her.
The Warlock is Book 1 of a series. The story continues in Waterspell Books 2-4: The Wysard, The Wisewoman, and The Witch. Available as a 4-in-1 boxed set (ebook bundle).
“A riveting series.”
“Vivid, complicated characters.”
“Addictive epic fantasy. You won’t want to leave this world.”
A Portal Fantasy Quest with elements of eco-fantasy, mystery, a little slow-burning romance, and dark dystopian undercurrents. Waterspell: a cross-genre story with too many layers for a single label.
