Overview

Wendy Stroud fears for her family. Eric, her mother's new boyfriend, has a fearful temper, which gets worse when he drinks. He regularly beats her mother, he hits her on occasion, and he sent her Uncle Timothy to the hospital. He even killed her pet Siamese cat.

Wendy wants him to go away and never come back, but she can't do it on her own. Her Uncle had told her about a friend who could help, but Eric beat him almost to death before he could ask.

Wendy cannot wait until he recovers, if he ever does. Who knows what Eric might do in the meantime? She decides to contact her Uncle's friend herself. Fortunately, he had told her how to do it.

All she has to do is recite a magic spell out of one of his books....

Meet the Author

Kevin L. O'Brien was born with a pen in his hand.Well, not quite, but he has been writing for as long as he can remember, at least since First Grade. Writing has always been his first, true love, but it hasn't always been his career. He worked for 15 years as a biomedical researcher, then for 3 years as a web designer. However, after 30 years of trying to be published in print with little success, he has decided to try his hand at self-publishing. Most of his works will be sold as ebooks through Smashwords, Kindle, and Kobe, but he also plans to make some available for free on Wattpad.He writes primarily speculative fiction -- fantasy, science fiction, horror, and their sub-genres -- but he also likes to try his hand at thrillers, suspense, mystery, and even westerns. However, his stories tend to have a fantasy element, no matter how subtle.Most of his stories involve the following three main characters:Medb hErenn (medbherenn.com/) -- One-time queen of Ireland, she is over 3500 years old. A warrior and a sorceress, she cannot be harmed by any weapon made by the hand of man.Eile and Sunny, Team Girl (teamgirlforever.com/) -- They are two adorable, vivacious, fun-loving young women whose motto is ONWARD TO ADVENTURE!!! Yet trouble follows them like a love-sick puppy wherever they go.Sir Differel Van Helsing (sir-differel.com/) -- The descendent of Abraham Van Helsing and King Arthur, she heads the Caerleon Order, the premier monster-hunting organization of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. She commands Dracula, the most powerful vampire extant, and the greatsword Caliburn, better known as Excalibur.He also writes a series of sword & sorcery stories set in an alternative universe known as the Lands of the Dreams of Men.Kevin lives in Denver with his family and 4 cats.For more information, see his website: seanchaisongs.com/

    The author almost lovingly combines the wonder and strength of an innocent child with the horror of domestic violence, and a good bad guy. If any short fantasy story should win a prize , this is it!

    I really enjoyed this wonderful story

    The faith and trust of a child was depicted in such a way, that it was child-like, and not childish. In other words, this isn't a story for young children, but it's about a young child. I recommend this story.
